great shoe but this new version of josl1n fits 1-2 numbers bigger than the older version. size 9us fits like 10us, previously joslins fit smaller ones. Therefore, choose a minimum half larger size when buying, this is my advice for you.

Fit is the same as the Joslin1 from two years ago. Awesome! I can feel the soft midsole, and the insole feels great as well. I have not skated it yet, but expecting it to perform the same way the other Joslin 1 did. I don’t know yet how well the Vegan leather holds up and I can’t find any reports from anyone on Slap, so I’m curious if it will last as long as suede.
As for the breathability: they do not breathe as well as the suede ones. It makes sense if your foot is practically wrapped in recycled plastic (or whatever synthetic material it is). I’m bummed it’s a shoe I just can’t wear all day at work since my feet get really sweaty, but for a SKATE SHOE I guess who really cares?
Stitching and construction look solid and quality, which is great considering the price of shoe! Nice job Etnies.
