The only shoes skatable right out of the box- beat grip - even without Michelin
I love Etnies and these have been great skating in
really good vulc model. They have a good amount of board feel but are still stiff enough to give you the support you need down an 8 stair. I so swap out the insoles for some FP insoles, but I do that with every shoe. The barge has a nice look and really great flick too. I'm currently on my fifth pair and will absolutely be buying more.
I like them. Stylish comfortable. Haven't skated them yet but they seem like they might be durable either way you can't go wrong with for the awesome price that they are at.
