Etnies - the only footwear you need

Etnies has been making footwear and apparel for skateboarding, BMX, motocross, surfing, and snowboarding since 1986. Etnies shoes are well-known and respected in the world of action sports for their comfort and durability. They were one of the first global skate and alternative sport brands, with its headquarters in Lake Forest, California. Following the conclusion of his professional skating career, Pierre André Sénizergues founded the company and started producing Etnies shoes. They sponsor a world-class team of adrenaline junkies, including skateboarders, BMX riders, surfers, snowboarders, and motocross riders, who work hard to protect the planet they call home.

Etnies are built to last

As a skater, you will know that board grip on a shoe is as important on a shoe as a good tyre is on a car. Etnies agree and have given many of their shoes a tyre as a sole! Well, almost. Etnies trainers, such as the Marana and Joslin ranges, feature Michelin rubber outsoles for maximum grip and minimum slip. This results in a non-marking, long-lasting material that increases the shoe's longevity and durability. These also come with Pro Foam insoles for comfort.

The padded tongue and collar found on Etnies shoes add to the comfort. They gently push your foot back into your shoe, preventing your heel from slipping out and reducing or eliminating any discomfort caused by your shoe's tongue on your foot or ankle.

Sneakers with lasting style

Etnies high tops have not been forgotten either. A good example is the Argon shoe. They are part of the Winterized collection and are made for cooler weather. They have a Die-Cut EVA cushioned midsole and a Foam Lite insole. The tongue is microfleece, and the whole shoe is water-resistant. Available in brown with blue panels, they are both stylish and functional.

Borrowing a little design inspiration from the Etnies Fader, the Kingpin is a classic puffy tongue skateboard shoe. Etnies brag these sneakers are “inspired by our past, build for the future." This chunky shoe has a reinforced heel and toe area and are lined with moisture-wicking mesh.

Etnies look, feel and do good

Now you can wear a pair of Etnies with no guilt. They are proud to produce vegan shoes, such as the Joslin Vulc, Marana Slip, Jameson 2 Eco and Windrow ranges. Not only are they vegan, but when you purchase a pair, Etnies will plant a tree! They have planted over 2 million trees since 2011 thanks to this initiative. Now you can look good, feel good, and do good just by purchasing a pair of shoes!

Don’t forget your head! Along with their amazing range of footwear, Etnies also keep you looking cool with fantastic beanies. These striped hats are available in an array of coloured and feature the Etnies logo.
