Introducing The Ellington Vulc
We’ve taken Erik Ellington’s athletic-inspired signature mid top and stripped it down to the bare essentials for a streamlined design with classic board feel.
“What I wanted was my shoe on a vulcanized sole, and that’s what we did,” Ellington said. “Basically, everything about the way the Ellington was—the upper of it—I wanted to keep, so there was nothing that was really changed aside from the thickness of the padding and stuff like that. Everything was kept from the original.”
The Ellington’s clean lines remain in a slimmed down version set atop a dual traction vulcanized sole for improved traction and timeless style. Excess padding was removed and a dual-density insole was implemented for added impact protection. Perforations at the quarter aid in ventilation while a lightly padded interior of Drilex mesh helps wick away moisture and keep your feet cool.
The Ellington Vulc is now available at better skate shops worldwide. Find a Retailer near you, or pick up a pair in our online store.
