This is my first slip on skateboard shoe still trying to break it through but in regards they are great chill shoes
Definitely one of the best skateboard shoes I have worn My skateboard response to the shoes so well I am able to do a lot of tricks more consistent
I love the Quality of the shoe that I actually bought the other pair the white sole and brown logo
Great looking shoe. I wear a 10 but got a 10.5 cuz I wasn’t sure about how it would fit. It fits just right not too much or too little space. . Sole is nice and grippy but not too grippy. I feel like I can control how much I want to grip based on how much I plant my feet in the board.
I’ve probably had about fifty pairs of Etnies now, and just like always they’ve been true to size and look great, also hold up really well.
I would leave a 5 star review but the shoes I got were blue and I had ordered gray ones. Still, excellent shoes! The last pair I purchased was 9 years ago and they are still intact (albeit well-worn). Might I add I paid full-price for this pair despite black Friday bringing the price down ~20%, I think they are well worth the full price.
Been skating etnies on and off for years now and these might be my favorite by far! Good grip, good boardfeel, comfortable, and they look clean! Definitely will be getting another pair soon!
good for what it is. would be nice if the backpack had a dedicated loop for it. didn't see one tho...
the state of the skate backpack market is really sad right now. this is probably one of the best, though. saying that, it has some pros with a lot of cons.
because of the laptop compartment that has velcro flap thing at the bottom to separate the charging block, the main compartment feels more like a mid-size bag. i use mine for groceries and frozen pizza box needs corner bent to fit. six of talls, some limes in the mesh and some munchies fits perfect tho lol.
straps are comfortable with and without sternum strap, and they have mesh venting, but back doesn't have mesh and there is no waist strap. so, every time you pop the thing flops around, also, the straps should have the "yolk" design to increase carry weight potential while prevent tearing. carry strap is just plain disappointing.
molle system is great, but don't know if they really intended people to use them as they don't sell any branded add-on bags. got some standard molle bags from Amazon. was an extra $40, but overall worth it considering slight lack or organization features.
single molle row on the sides are limiting. causing anything attached to hang and flop around. should be two rows. might be cost saving, might only be for carabiner type stuff, but short sighted.
side bags/water bottle holders are decent. however, zipper pockets are thin, so can't put in anything substantial, though, especially at the same time as a bottle e.g. wallet or skate tool.
material is ok, and that would be ok, if it wasn't the same material EVERYWHERE. tbh, if this is designed for skateboarding, then only 800d+ or an industrial diamond dobby stitch material with a reinforced bottom, and, if equipped with skateboard harness, some sort of extra durable possibly synthetic reinforcement where the grip is guaranteed to wear the bag.
overall probably a 7/10.
Owned a lot of shoes from various companies for general shoe stuff (walking around) and skating. These are the best for general shoe stuff, didnt try skating yet (too snowy around here). Lip feels very solid tho, can only imagine them holding up for quite a while.
Super comfy, super snug, super good looking. Get these.
i really want to skate these and just am waiting for them to get back in stock
Best downhill / enduro clip shoe I have worn to date. Coming off the Giro Chamber and Afton clip shoe. Comfortable, stiff, good for hike a bike, dry feet in the rain. 10/10
