Black Out Braille Skate Shoes


"Black Out" Braille Skate Shoes! Our First Try shoes are now available in a new color way - black on black! 

We wanted to make the best quality skate shoes possible. These shoes are perfect for beginners and advanced skaters alike and per our customers feel like a teddy bear hugging your feet.

Get 'em before they're gone and gone for good. This wicked black-on-black design will never be made again. 

5% of profits to the First Try Foundation to help grow skateboarding and give skateboards to those in need.


Aaron Kyro was involved firsthand in every step of the design process, making sure to combine the best parts of all his favorite skate shoes.

Chosen for the classic silhouette, comfort, freedom of movement, and ease to wear – The Braille Skate Shoe was designed to be the perfect all-around skate shoe.


We opted for a cupsole construction (vs. vulcanized) in order to improve the overall support and durability of the shoe.

The footbed used in the Braille shoe has been specifically developed to provide the wearer with an optimum level of comfort and support while also remaining lightweight and maintaining a good level of board feel.

The outsole, made from a rubber (SBR) compound, is commonly used in quality footwear to provide excellent grip, comfort, and durability resulting in a high-performance skate shoe.


These limited edition black out shoes each comes with a signed card from Aaron Kyro himself.

The Upper is made of high-quality suede sourced from Spain to provide the classic skate look and feel. The tongue and collar of the shoe have been reinforced with a foam padding for extra comfort and foot support. The front part of the shoe (the vamp) uses a singular piece of suede which greatly increases the durability.

The laces are high-quality cotton which increases their longevity with little to no chance of snapping.

This shoe has a unique front toe bumper with a prominent texture for added grip while doing technical skate tricks.


Shoes are standard men’s sizes and fit true to size. Whole sizes only. Ladies! Sizing is easily converted over to women’s sizes by simply adding 1.5 to the US size. For example, a men’s size 7 is a women’s size 8.5.

Not comfortable shoes

The soles in the shoes were not put in good so it didn’t feel right at all.

Good shoes

I got these shoes 2 days after ordering them and I’m across the country. These shoes are well made but it’s only made for one kind of foot. A skinny one. My feet are wide so the soles in the shoes didn’t work well.

Cool shoes, well made. They just didn’t fit my feet right. I was charged shipping to return them. Be warned! $15 to return $90 shoes.  Definitely not buying anything from this company again.


I really liked the Original Shoes and looked forward to receiving these. I sadly never got them so I can't review them. Sorry.

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. That's how amazing these shoes are and of course the signed card!
