Skateboarding pioneers trends, challenges traditions, and pushes through barriers. It is this very thinking that defines skateboarders as fashion forward individuals, and never before has this been more relevant. In honor of these innovators, Element is proud to present The Emerald Collection, a natural progression in skateboard lifestyle footwear. Every emerald shoe focuses on design, fit, and comfort, and makes use of materials and techniques that are Conscious by Nature. Featured here is the line’s Hampton, a sleek mid-cut shoe that merges a classic deck style with Element’s trademark aesthetic. The shoes look to become available October 1st, 2010 through specialty footwear retailers along with the rest of the brand’s Emerald Collection.
