Etnies did a nice job with this shoe. It's comfy and quite breathable even though it is all made up of a water resistant shell. It does wear a bit wide not in fit but in looks. If you want these to stay black ne prepared to clean them, they sort of grab dirt and dust but wipe off easily. I have used them for everyday use plus a little casual biking and they are great so far. The laces are a bit ugly after 2 weeks, but throw some new ones in that are a bit tougher and they are sick!
I've been buying Etnies Maranas for over a decade. These are very comfortable, and breathe, but because they are black and the material is pleather-like, they get hot very quick in the sun. The new material makes them look like a normal pair of kitchen shoes after a couple of weeks, not very stylish after the normal creases start to form at all. Was also expecting them to be "Slim" in design (Thinner material maybe?), but they seem thicker than the normal pairs I've always bought.
Lite, comfortable, grippy, good looking, stylish. I am not a biker or a skater, as everyday shoe for jumping climbing working hard, this is great brand and great shoe for kicking around!!!!
