I been wearing etnies faze shoes for almost 4 years now and its the only pair of shoes that get the job done. Where as other shoes fall apart within 3-6 months etnies faze shoes lasted me 15 months and I'm very hard on shoes.
These are tanks! They take a while to brake in, they are very sturdy, the inner side wall is very sturdy too I like that, it could be improved the nose trend to crimp a little on the leather, also being a very stiff shoe I think adding some air pockets would be dope, they almost fell like my d3's , over all I love them .
Laces are cheap and so it's the material over the toes. The sizebis not like faders 1/2 to a full size too big.
I have 2 pairs of FAZE they remind me of a puffy pillowy 90s Osiris model I can't remember the name. Their look it's a "big" shoe but the styling and cupsole are on point. Need about 3 skates to feel better and a week to break in completely. Pretty good ollie protection but lace protection is what it is....good shoe especially on the 40% off of the sale price can't go wrong. I put 2 stars by accident they're 4 star shoes.
I love etnies and I am very happy I found these at such a great price!!
