I purchased and returned two sizes of this shoe a couple months apart. I really like this shoe, but it seems like these shoes are better suited for those with flat feet...maybe I have high arches. The width and length were good, but my feet were always vertically restricted.
The Jameson HT is an all VEGAN high top designed for vegan skateboarder, Ryan Lay. Developed with all animal-friendly materials, it is made with a combination of canvas and a synthetic suede upper for a long-lasting skate shoe. Built by Skateboarding, the Jameson HT features a hidden toe cap for added durability and the team’s favorite Geo-Hex tread pattern for grip. With an egg-crate construction in the midsole, it offers vulc-like board feel in a faux-vulc cupsole.

I got the pyramid country collab of these and they are awesome. They take a couple sessions to break in. So glad there is a great vegan hightop!
These shoes have a nice clean look and I appreciate the vegan materials used. The quality overall was very good, with clean stitching and nice, understated details. These are the highest cut skate shoes I've ever worn and as a result my feet feel very secure once I managed to get them on and the cupsole construction hugged the foot well. Unfortunately, the fit is on the narrow side and I think going up a half size is worth exploring if you have a wide forefoot like mine. I would have given this shoe 5 stars, but the insoles do not provide much cushioing and I had a pain in my hip after a few ollies down a three stair. Aftermarket insoles are generally too voluminous to fit inside the shoe, unless they are flat. So, I cannot recommend these to anyone on the heavier or older side (and I am a bit of both). Overall, a well-designed shoe that could be perfect with a bit more cushioning underfoot.
Great shoes, super fast delivery!
Super comfy, look great, and vegan!
Great shoes, they used to hurt my feet but they got infinitely more comfortable when I laced them up a bit more. They're cozy
Everything was fast and excellent. And this e-mail is so cute and unexcepted. Thank you guys, youre great!
Very good shoes the sides aren't breaking yet unlike many MANY other shoes!
They look the part. I'm not a skater or a grunge head but I am a vegan and I want to look the part when going about my business. These hi tops fulfill the purpose, they have a quality look and feel to them. They are sturdy and comfortable to wear.
Excellent shoes but a bit of a narrow cut. Always got a 8.5 size ( U.K. ) previously and never had a problem but these are a bit of a tighter fit. Great to see that Etnies have brought out another vegan shoe, one of the few manufacturers that do. Would love to see them bring back the RVM which I've bought before in both black and camo.
This shoe is dope. It is comfortable, looks great, and feels great to wear. I am a fan of the High Tops and this shoe is well worth it. I don't skate however, I used to though. I love the style of the shoe and will continue to wear it. It may have a steep price tag, but after wearing these for a day you'll step back and say "Wow".
I'm not a vegan. I love this shoe. Great comfort, great skate shoe . Holding up great and provides great support. In a world void of good high tops to skate in- this is my favorite. And of course Etnies rules... Gonna pick up a pair of navy soon...
Appreciate that this shoe vegan. A low top version would be sick
These shoes are sick. Comfortable as hell after a couple days and no rolled ankles! Of course my favorite thing about them is the message of compassion I can spread just by wearing them. (Just don't use sweatshops and I'll really love you, Etnies).
Narrow shoes but quality made. Stoked on a sick vegan shoe that is made for skating.
Lol that I'm the first US review. Immediately impressed with the construction of these shoes. Feel great inside and out. Hopefully you guys will keep these around for when I need a second pair!! This may be the only Vegan thing I accomplish in life, but it was totally worth it.
Best shoes I have ever skated! 10/10 for design and comfort, been skating hard in these shoes for. Couple weeks and they're barley worn down. Been searching for a long time for a synthetic vegan suede and you guys have pulled it off really well! I'll never buy another shoe again this one will be what I skate!........ GO VEGAN!
Fast delivery. Really comfy, cute design. Happy customer :)
I just want to say how bloody amazing it is that you offered a vegan shoe. The second I saw the first post about them on Instagram I ordered them immediately. They arrived quickly and were on my feet straight away. A really good shoe with real quality. I have yet to skate them as I don't dare. I have loads of shoes and these are my go to shoes every time!
