Emerica skate shoes latest video ‘Green’

Sunday, February 23rd, 2020

Emerica skate shoes latest video ‘Green’ is here and it’s an amazing 18 minutes of the traditional, progressive street-hammering we’ve all come to expect from the brand.
Emerica is one of the stalwarts of the skater-owned shoe universe: the brand that gave us epoch-forming video sections from the likes of Andrew Reynolds, Heath Kirchart and Ed Templeton to name but a few of the greats who have at one point laced up signature Emerica shoes. Over the last few years the brand has suffered the loss of a few of its biggest names – Heath Kirchart to retirement, Ed Templeton to vegan ice cream and creepy pier photography, Jerry Hsu to the world of Sci Fi and Fantasy and, most recent and most notably, long time flagship rider Andrew Reynolds shifting over to an as yet not entirely explained in full deal with Vans.

The Emericans have taken it on the chin and have come back swinging with this latest 18 minute online follow up to the equally incredible Made Chapter 2 (their last full-length release), which you can see below.
Newest recruits Dakota Servold and Erick Winkowski absolutely kill it, as do Emerica long-servers Figgy, Colin Provost, Kevin ‘Spanky’ Long and various others. The curtains belong to Deathwish’s own recently sober leader of farm-hand inspired street wear and by God, does John Dickson come through. For such a beefy dude, his finesse is untouchable and despite being dressed like Lenny from Of Mice and Men, I’d trust him to pet my new puppy, no problem.
As always with Emerica – this is straight forward, zero gimmicks skateboarding.

Emerica – MADE Chapter 2 Trailer

Monday, July 11th, 2016

 

It has been about three years since Emerica started their MADE Chapter series. The first chapter, released in 2013 featured Leo Romero, Brandon Westgate, Colin Provost and a surprising part from Jeremy Leabres. Now, the official trailer for MADE Chapter 2 has been published online with Jerry Hsu giving us the lowdown on what to expect and how excited he is about the project. Although there has been no official release date yet, we can probably expect it in the later end of 2016. Speaking on the Shelter Show podcast this week Jerry said “October-November-ish. September-October-November. Something like that.” Then he gave us insight who’s going to be featured in this installment, “That’s gonna be Andrew [Reynolds], [Bryan] Herman, Spanky, Figgy, and then myself. And then, like, everyone else will be in the video—they’ll just be in there. Everyone on the team will be in the video, but those guys will have parts.”

 

Click play below and get hyped because MADE Chapter 2 is most certainly going to be worth the wait.

When Stannerz Met Jerry Hsu

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

 

Earlier this year our team rider Nick Stannerz had the opportunity to interview the legend Jerry Hsu. Born December 17, 1981 and currently living in San Jose, California. Jerry has been involved in skateboarding for many years so it was a pleasure to get the opportunity to ask some questions. If your not familiar with Jerry then get familiar! Have a read below to find out what he replied and about his move to Chocolate and much, much more…..

 

Nick: Mr Jerry Hsu, steez isn’t a good enough compliment for your mad skills on a skateboard and character off the board. You have done some serious sh#t over the years, from Osiris “The Storm” To Enjoi “Bag Of Suck” which ended up you winning the Transworld best video part……must be stoked about that right?

 

Jerry: I’m glad to still have this job, yes.

 

Nick: It’s not any new news that you have left Osiris for Emerica which resulted in your epic Stay Gold Part but you have recently moved from Enjoi to Chocolate…. It must have been upsetting leaving your good friends at Enjoi like Ben Raemers and Barletta?

Jerry: Everyone on the team is my friend so yeah it wasn’t easy to go my separate way, but there are no hard feelings and I’m always glad to skate with those guys.

 

 

Nick: So now you’re part of the Chocolate family which is bloody amazing what can we expect in the future, could you give us any secrets on missions to come featuring the company and yourself?

Jerry: Everyone is helping to plan 20 years of Chocolate so that’s the main thing coming out. I don’t have any personal projects with Chocolate right now, just skating with my new team mates and going on trips this year. I’m focused on Made 2 at Emerica so Chocolate is nice enough to let me do that.

 

Nick: How did the idea behind the chocolate Beavis and Butthead for yourself and Marc Johnson come about?

Jerry: I really had nothing to do with it. An artist named Rob Mathieson sent in the Butthead version of me to Girl and they liked it so they asked him to do an MJ version too. I think they came out just right.

 

 

Nick: Since the move to Chocolate Skateboards has this changed the crew you cruise with and who does this involve anyway?

Jerry: Yeah I go out with Ben Colen a lot (girl/choco photographer) so I get to meet up with people on the team more like Vincent and Stevie and I go skate with MJ as much as I can. But as far as my regular crew of people, that hasn’t changed really.

 

Nick: You’ve visited Manchester last year for an Emerica Demo at the Pumpcage, did you manage to see much of the city and if so what did you think? You should also make plans to come back and visit, more than welcome to pop into the store for a brew (tea) or coffee!

Jerry: I enjoyed Manchester and I would love to come back for tea.

 

Nick: Manchester has also produced some great music in its time like Joy Division, The Smiths, Stone Roses, Broke n English and DJ Dogger but no Elvis, is it true you have been nicknamed ‘The Asian Elvis’ aha….. How did this come about?

Jerry: I think it comes from when Matt Eversole and Chris Avery made the first tilt mode video and the just put that name in front of my part. I have no idea why and it doesn’t make any sense to me.

 

 

 

Nick: With the photography Instagram has been a huge hit in the past years but how did the name @internetfamous come to mind?

Jerry: Most people take that name literally which I will never understand. I wanted to have a name that was slightly derogatory and glib. I felt like people seeking out and begging for internet fame was so rampant and pathetic I would name it after them. It’s basically meaningless.

 

Nick: Many thanks from the Black Sheep Store for answering these long winded questions aha…. it is much appreciated! To finish off with we would like your quote of the year so far? Thanks again and we wish you luck for the future and your time at Chocolate Skateboards. Respect man!

Jerry: I’m still waiting for my quote of the year. Thanks so much.

 

 

I hope you have enjoyed getting to know Jerry more and we would like to thank him and Chocolate for making this interview happen. It mustn’t have been easy making time to speak to Stannerz of all people so lots of respect and hope all goes well with your future at Chocolate and we’re very excited to see more action from Jerry in future!

Lastly massive thanks to Form Distribution for hooking this one up.
