C1RCA has released four colorways of Emmanuel Guzman's pro-model, The Griz. A limited number of the Black/Flame Orange colorway of the Griz was early released in Fall 2011, but Spring 2012 marks the official release of the shoe.
The Griz is Emmanuel Guzman's first pro-model with C1RCA. The Griz was specifically designed with Guzman in mind, and with added technology- it's the perfect shoe for Guzman to skate in.
"I am more than happy to be releasing my signature shoe, The Griz. I've had a good feeling about the design and quality of the product from the first samples I received and skated in. I constantly emphasize to fellow skateboarders how important it is that the product I endorse is something I truly believe in and want to use myself- that couldn't be more true in this case! Not only is The Griz for skaters [because of its appearance] but mad scientists behind the scenes have developed some amazing new technologies to debut in my shoe. Most vulcanized shoes have great feel but not heel and foot support for comfort. Believe it or not, we were able to incorporate both into this shoe, and we call this technology Aerocush. Cliché in name but not results! You don't have to take my word on it, but I STRONGLY suggest you do!"
