If it is no longer on our website or wanting to know if something is being stocked at Empire, you can contact our Online Customer Service team hello@empireskate.co.nz and we’ll let you know when the next order will come in, or we can try and source one for you.

In the product page, sizes are listed in squares, sizes that are sold out will have an X through them. In the collections page, sizes highlighted in orange indicate that there is only one left, sizes in green indicate we have more than one in stock.
