Design Details


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.

Really well made shoe... But the design has flaws...

The shoe is a little tight but that's kinda good for skating but not for hanging out. The construction and materials seem amazing. The heal padding is just ok. The sole is square at the edge and I've needed to figure that out... I took a file to the edge and it's better. This is just shy of perfection. Super basic look stealth look.

Great 'n grippy

Pros: Solid construction, great grip due to the massive amount of suede used (hence the next line of shoes using it more sparingly) and quality rubber sole, good combo of grip and hardness for durrability. killer style (shout out Aaron) and feet don't hurt after a day of skating
Cons: pdurability. At first if you have somewhat wide feet, initially very high arch support (my feet are pretty flat)
With the cons, suede stretches well and the insole gives quite a bit after the first couple of sessions so they became a LOT more comfortable very quickly.
Excellent style without compromise to function. We call that a win.

Thanks so much for the thorough review and feedback! We're glad you like 'em!! Keep skating and progressing :)

Great but, NOT for wide feet.

Great materials and workmanship, and I LOVE how they look. Everything about them feels quality. I was really looking forward to having a stitched cup sole skate shoe again like the 90's vans were.

Alas, it was not to be. Shoe is extremely narrow compared to most skate shoes, at least in size the size 13 I tried. I couldn't even get my foot into these with the insole's installed while they were completely unlaced(combination of foot height and width made it impossible, not enough material in the toe/top of the foot area and the laced gusset section doesn't run very far. )

I took the insoles out because I REALLY want these to work, and was able to get my foot in but the narrow width is crushing my foot too much to even walk comfortably.

Only taking off 1 star for the sizing because I think if you have narrow to average feet these will be a great shoe. I'm personally going to keep them because I watch the videos and I like the idea of supporting Braille. I may try a shoe stretcher to make it work. I do wish the sizing was a little more transparent though as these are definitely not a standard size 13 fit as stated (I've been wearing size 13 skate shoes from various brands since the 90's and never encountered this).

For reference I usually wear a 12ew in normal shoes and size up to 13 in skate shoes as they almost never offer wide widths.
