Love the re-release of these. Still have my original pair but they've seen their better days. Excited of the days ahead with my new pair!
Personally my favorite shoe to skate in right now. rnrnIt's tough, durable, has a long lifespan, flexible and light. rnrnThe pattern on the bottom of the soles gives great board feel and the rubberized layer around the toe box gets along great with your griptape. The you have the pad on top of the toe box(no more hole where your toes are just shoe-goo the pad back on and your good to go!) and the cushioned tongue in classic ernie's fashion. rnrnThis shoe is *chef's kiss* brilliant!!!
Truly an epic cupsole shoe. Very durable and breathe able for the foot.
I have been skating these kicks for a couple years now. As soon as I made the switch, the ankle pain and hot pockets I had been experiencing significantly decreased. These shoes are my go to and you can't ask for a better price point. They continue to push these quality bad boys out for around $37, you can't beat that. But don't take my word for it, I am fine with keeping what I believe is a depleting inventory for myself.
Great, mostly accurate replicas. I just tossed my old Czars a few days ago, when I found I could order these, so it's very easy for me to compare these to the originals. I REALLY wish they'd kept the red Etnies logo on the heel. If I could rate them 4.5 stars for that style error, instead of 5, I would. I'm glad they ditched the white marshmallow molding on the sides, above the soles, though, as that wore out long the shoes themselves on the original Czars. These are a little roomier. The old Czars were made during the height of puff skate shoes, in the early 00s, and the line between snug and claustrophobic with puff sneakers was always very thin. These are a modern sneaker build with a puffy tongue. I am very pleased to have one of my all time favorite sneakers returned to me. They look fantastic, and fit well. Well done, Etnies.
