Etnies shoes are stylish and performance-oriented skateboard shoes. The brand was founded in 1986 by a French pro skater and was the first shoe brand run by skaters. Because of this, Etnies knew from day one what kind of demands skaters make on their footwear. With their innovative and creative approach to skate shoes, Etnies changed the skateboard world forever. The brand introduced many revolutionary technologies and innovative designs, like the famous Rap styling and triple-stitching. Etnies was also the first brand to release a signature shoe of a pro skater.
Skate shoes, children's shoes and more!
Today, Etnies still makes shoes and children's shoes where creativity, performance and innovation are paramount. These shoes are still designed with input from well-known pro skaters like Ryan Sheckler, Tyler Bledsoe and Cairo Foster. These pros make high demands on their skate shoes when it comes to durability and comfort, but also when it comes to style. For optimal impact protection, Etnies uses the patented STI foam, for unprecedented strength Etnies uses only the best materials. Just like Emerica Etnies is owned by Sole Technology. The difference between these brands is that Etnies is a bit more accessible and doesn't only focus on hardcore skateboarders. Even if you don't skate, Etnies is super comfortable, light and sturdy.
