I love them soo much I always have a pair for my every day shoe
These are my favorite skat sneakers. All around comfortable. Good fit for a wider foot.
Ok, I love this shoe. It's every vibe I was looking for, insane comfort for all say wear, and would highly recommend.
This a very tasteful new colorway for this awesome shoe. See my other review for some incoherent ramblings of an old codger.
Great price! Came as they should have. Thanks Etnies
I am in love wear them daily to work as a manger at dollar tree! They are supportive ,cushion comfy, look amazing, and are my new favorite pair shoes! If your on the fence just buy totally worth every penny!
I loved it. In your image gallery I found the sneakers very cool. But when I opened the box ... Beautiful ... And they are very comfortable. I will buy more as much as possible.
Great trainers. So good they come in half sizes to get the perfect fit. There so nice I don’t want to wear them out.
Best shoes i've ever gotten!
This is the only shoe I can find that fits to my foot perfectly and feels comfortable. Great for skating and other everyday use. The first pair lasted for a long time - now ordered 2 pairs more. A shoe to love, no need to seek alternatives.
A classic. Comfy, stylish. I have worn kingpins for years. Lost count how many pairs I've had. I'm glad I don't have to say "they don't make them like they used to".
Order received very quickly after it was made. Quality of the box the shoes were shipped in was great, so were the shoes themselves. Will highly recommend ordering from etnies.com to others and will probably place a new order myself in the near future.
Lovely well made trainers
Me encantan!! Pena que no haya tallas más pequeñas para chica.
There is no much to say, but classics never go out style. Year after year, solid choice for
Nice ans cool !
Fast and excellent :)
Bonjour, cela fait 4 semaines que j'attends de vos nouvelles pour un bon de retour pour le renvoie de ma commande car il y a un défaut sur la chaussure droite. D'où la promo très certainement!! Malgré plusieures relances, aucune prise en charge de votre part. Qu'attendez-vous?
Good, simple, fast
Warm in the winter, cool in the summer. Second time buying the same shoes because they are just really nice.
Love the shoes, always comfy. Only thing is the soles let in the weather after about 6 months, this is a shame as the shoes still look and feel good. Still this is longer than some other brands I could mention. Don’t wear on rainy days.
Can you PLEASE make these VEGAN. I love these show and i just want this style in a vegan range
Love this shoes, would be great if you could make this style that are vegan friendly.
Perfect look ans size. Thumb UP!
honestly i love these shoes, couldn't live without them, i have lost count of how many pairs ii have had now. i got my first pair almost 15 years ago years ago now. since leaving school about 10 years ago now i have worn a pair of almost kingpins every day. the only time i cant wear them is either when I'm in suit (although not always ;)) or when im riding my motorbike but you know they are in my bag for when i get were I'm going n need to take my boots off. honestly these things are more familiar to me than my own feet. promise never to stop making them
One of the best I've ever had!!!
Nice, warm, they will be comfy once I'm done getting them broken in.
Been a customer since 1998. A very comfortable shoe.
Good product, run small in size. Ended up giving them to my son and ordering a larger pair. Go up about 3 sizes from what you normally get
Love these shoes so much. I don’t need winter boots because these keep my feet so warm. An absolute staple!
Appear to be a great looking skate shoe. Sizing runs a lot small. I typically wear a 10.5-11. Ordered a 11.5 and it fits like a size 10. Thats the downside of online ordering I guess. So order a cpl sizes bigger than normal. I'll send another review once the right size gets here
These shoes are bomb as hell. They just take a little time to open up. They felt tight until I wore them around the house a couple of days. After that they have been amazing ever since
Black on black is where it’s at! ❤️
Some of the most fire shoes ive ever owned, they go with almost everything i wear
Great shoes very comfortable.
Been rocking these kicks since the 90's. Love em!
I actually had to send them back and awaiting to hear from them. It wasn't by fault of the company, though. I had to get a half size lower bc I forgot they run a little big. I sent them a week ago and hope to hear something soon. As far as the company, I do recommend them. Product came a little before ETA, nicely packed and of course, great condition.
I've been wearing An etnies kingpin for over 10 years, I absolutely love these shoes. Very comfortable. I highly recommend them!!
They're just as good as I expected and just as good as I always heard they were. The cushion and comfort is awesome. The entire sole of the shoe makes solid contact with the board. Good grip and still offering the right amount of flexibility in the ankle area. And of course...they just look cool as hell. Simple, durable and seemingly designed for the skater. Delivery was quick and on time. This is my first pair of Etnies and won't be my last that's for sure.
kingpin is the nest shoe ever,great board feel and durable
Dude, these shoes are dope asf, fit just like high school! I bought a deck and now Old man Jennex is on the loose! Super comfortable, great quality. Pillowfoot
Best Etnies in a long time. Love the REAL leather & gum soles.
Amazing shoes comfortable as always and love the color!! Has a slightly green tint like the iPhone 11 Pro dark green option!! Still waiting for the charcoal gray and white king pins in size 7! My life will be complete then!! I always buy etnies and the kingpin style is perfect combination of style and comfort can’t wait to try the King pin 2s! Etnies has really stepped up its game with that color scheme!!
great snuggled fit. excellent wear. I shall squash many of bug with them. all hail the kingpin!
These were great. I skate almost every day for at least 2 hours and after 30 days the spot where the shoe wears out due to kickflips is still pretty good, no tear. The shoe lace ripped out pretty quickly and the stiches are slowly ripping off on the sole. But I am sure these will last a lot longer. Also the padded tongue makes it feel comfortable to skate. Overall great skating shoe. Will definitely buy again.
These shoes are awesome and SUPER comfortable. It’s also really cool that I can find a size 15 somewhere
These shoes feel great. Every now and then I find a pair of shoes I really like and buy a second pair. After buying a pair of black Kingpins and wearing them everyday for a year to skate and to work and for normal everyday use I liked these so much I bought 4 Pairs.
I really love the shoes. They fit so well and so comfy. I will for sure buy more pairs from them.
Good shoe, great price. Awesome construction. True fit. Beefy 90's style shoe. Feels a lot like my OG ES' Accels, at a more affordable price. Thx Etnies! Keep up the quality work.
I love these shoes im a girl and they just fit my feet perfect they dont make shoes like this anymore very durable yet affordable i also bought sparkly purple shoes strings with them
these shoes are dope
Love the kingpins because they kept the old style my feet need. If you change all the styles at least keep these because they are simple and are extremely durable too.
Love the look the sizing is perfect. Would help a little if there was better padding on the bottom but otherwise very satisfied
They remind me of the Sal 23, from the 90s. I had a couple pair back in the day
Awesome! Love the style! Excellent quality and fit.
I love these shoes. They are my first pair from you guys. Very comfortable will buy more in the future.
These shoes are super comfortable and well cushioned. It was exactly what I was looking for.
DEEZ SNEAKERS R DA SHiT!!! HEY ETNIES DO FO Mii A FAVOR mo size-15's PLEZE, LET's GO BACK TOO'em 90's RELEASE O.G. "RAP" RED WHITE BLACK, Size-15 & "intresity" O.G. Size-15
my husband is coming home in 10 months. I purchased 2 pairs so we could match when he gets back cuz I'm corny like that...probably going to grab one more for our daughter so we can all be corny together.
Love the Kingpin with their thick tongues as I do flooring and sit on the tops of my feet
Gteat shoe, I need these in brown too
I've been ordering etnies for years. My last two orders of these shoes has been a little lacking in quality control. The top of the eyelet is not sewn correctly. Allowing it to flare out. Secondly this affects the glue that holds the padding on the inside of the shoe right below the eyelet that lets it flare out.
Love the shoes. Came in a simple minimal packaging box. I remember a time when shoes came with an extra set of laces. I guess those days are long gone
Awesome shoes. They run extremely small. I cannot wear them as they are so small and narrow
My son absolutely loved these trainers I’ve had to order 2 pairs one for school one for playing out !
The Kingpin truly is the king of casual footwear. They are comfy, look great and I love the relatively plain design. My second pair but my first lasted a good few years. I hope Etnies never stop making them.
Nice shoes good service
Born and Raised ETNIES
Nice and god made skate sneakers
On my 2nd pair at 62 years old you know when you buy quality, use these in the summer months when out on my Harley, hard wearing ,durable and comfy. Highly recommended 5 stars
I love this shoe- comfy and practical!
Always ready to go from the first time you put them on👍👍👍👍👍👍
Fast service and exactly what I wanted
I like these a lot! was fan of the puffy tongue for awhile and Etnies is the only Skate-Shoe i can wear since i got hurt and pinched multiple nerves in my back. Due to the injury most shoes feel horrible on my feet but I still Skate and Snow Board too, 32 and Etnies are the only brand that works! the Kingpin remind me of my Freights so I'm rocking these now. Please Etnies never stop making these "Puffy Tongue" style shoes!! Its the only pair of shoes I can wear for skateboarding these days that don't annoy my feet! All day comfort even with nerve injuries and great performance on the board too!! Thanks!!
It's a bit tighter in the toe than the Fader, especially toward the outside which might be better for some but wasn't for me. It's not so bad that they're unwearable or even uncomfortable just not quite as comfortable as what I usually get (which was out of stock in my size). Still a great shoe, no defects and great material quality. Personally I'd go for the Fader though...
I love love love my etnies! They are my favorite brand of skate show!!
Once broken in, very comfortable to wear on a daily basis.
Very comfortable, great work shoe.
Love etnies trainers! They are my favourite! ☺☺
Bought for my son, had them before . Seemed less padded this time. Last pair wore well, hoping these do too
Very clean shoe! Little tight but that’s how they all are, just have to break them in! If you guys don’t like the fat tongue I wouldn’t get them because they are skate shoes! Traditionally that’s how Etnies we’re when I use to be able to go an buy them from PacSun! All an all a great show! So comfortable and fun to wear !
Love Etnies! The Kingpin shoe is perfect.
I use these for work shoes. I own a framing business and a solid skateboard shoe is the only thing that keeps me safe walking on 2 inch ceiling joists 2 stories in the air. The Kingpin is one of the most durable shoes I've found lately. The extra stitching around the shoe lasts so well that I often wear the sole out before it comes loose from the top. Well done, Etnies
We have been buying etnies products for a while. I think they are great . This Kingpin does not disappoint iether. Looking forward to next purchase. Thanks. I started buying off etnies because they ship to Hungary very fast and cheap.
super comfy. have been looking for a pair of navy skate shoes and finally found them. great price too.
I searched for these shoes for a long time because the Etnies dealers are not very many in my region. The shoes are very comfortable and the colour is very nice. The product received on time without damage. Great shoes!!!! Thanks. The website is very serious.
Love these shoes. Hope they don't ever discontinue these
As nice as usual.
best shoe ever
Great shoes. Bf loves them
Simply the BEST
I LOVE etnies! Best shoes I've ever had! I have fat feet so it's hard to find comfortable shoes ... etnies are very very comfortable! Only shoes I ever buy anymore! I recommend these shoes to everyone!
Great shoes, love the look of the toe. Etnies is my go to brand, especially since it is so hard to find them in size 15!
Great shoe ..love the solid soles
I love Etnies and I wear it since about 10 years, mostly black Fader and red Woozy, always the same size: 42,5. I still wear most of them. Best brand to me, ever. However... the quality of this Kingpin is perfect, but it is the first time that a 42,5 is barely too small for me. (I keep wearing 42 and 42,5 in other brands, and my weight did not change) Please take care of this, as Etnies needs to stay coherent. I'm expecting two pairs with the same size to have exactly the same size. Unless I cant trust the sizes anymore when I buy online. 3mm less or 3mm more make a big difference for the factory, but also for our feet. Pushed by the inside, the shape of the shoes is slowly changing. But if it wasn't about the size, these shoes would be absolutely perfect. Great materials, awesome resistance, outstanding colors (especially the brown rubber). And your fast delivery is a must. Maybe - for size change - you could set up a "free return" policy in the future, just like a famous clothing company (name begins with L) already does. I will buy Etnies again in the future of course, I just hope the usual 42,5 won't be a very short 42.
These are great, exactly what I was looking for.
Just received these today, they are the most comfortable shoes I think I've ever had. Having huge feet it's INCREDIBLY hard to find shoes that aren't too narrow without going a size up and tripping over the extra length. if these shoes last I'll be buying them as long as they make them, needless to say I'm more than satisfied.
The most comfortable shoes on the planet.
It's a nice all Black shoe. Comfortable as always and is nice and warm in the winter.
I'm crazy bout them.Super comfortable and awesome looking.Not to mention the insanely fast delivery ! Don't stop making this model Etnies and keep on being awesome as always ! cheers
best shoes i ever had
Love my Kingpins. First Etnies I bought and feel like I've struck gold.
I ordered them 2 days ago and I literally just got them(Dark Brown version). They look and feel awesome ! I'm totally happy with my purchase, not to mention the surprisingly quick and on spot order/delivery system.Cheers to you Etnies Europe !
Delivery service 5 stars! The shoes are very comfortable, we loved it!
très bon service et qualité
An excellent pair of etnies, comfortable, snug fitting everything as described on the box. Perfect everyday footware.
Kingpin is a cool and reliable model. Nice shape hugging the foot. Thanks Etnies.
Nice shoe, well built, could use a little more cushion in the sole, but better than most shoes that aren't running shoes.
That full herringbone gum sole just never quits, and the grip is amazing. I wish more shoes had this type of gum sole. If an all-black mid version of Kingpin existed, I'd certainly be tempted to buy it.
so comfy, like walking on air. really cool, smart.
I love ETNIES shoes! They are the most comfortable and best made shoes I have ever worn!!! I've been wearing etnies for 4 years now and will never buy anything else!
Classic style, elegant, great shoes, please don't stop making kingpins.
The shoes are very comfortable and I really like their style. Also, they arrived only a few days after I made the order. All in all, I'm quite pleased with the product and the company.
Great product. My last etnies lasted me for 8 years in alaska. just ordered this one and i love the all black look. very comfy. Love Love Love these
Great buy. Love the shoes. Thank you
Comfortable for a daily use Resistant for skating and other means of shoes destruction Sober and fits all styles Definitively the good choice
Nice looking, all black! Fits perfectly. The delivery was super-fast and free, that's a plus!
Superb, fits my feet wonderfully, please don't stop making these I want to wear them forever now. A lot of skate shoes are too tight for my feet but these are lovely and comfortably with a great fit.
Nice strong shoe. Comfy and like the all black look! Good stuff.
My Hubby loves them. He has worn your shoes for over 15 years. He had one pair last for about 10 years! They are worth every penny spent. Excellent product!
simplemente , los mejores que he usado para patinar !!
simple yet cool design, saved my feet from severe injuries a few times - best shoe next to ŠS accel ...
Best Shoes ever
Very nice shoes, but above all very comfortable
Subtle skate shoe, very comfortable - wore them to work for years, beats the flimsy little leather shoes everyone else is wearing in the office.
I remember this shoe from years ago and i just dropped 100 bucks on the camo 32s but wish i would have jumped on these! never knew they brought em back! best shoe I've ever owned and they have madd style.
These shoes are very simple but incredible cool and comfortable. You could use them as elegant shoes because of the color (simply black) using in combination with a black jacket. I am really pride of my new shoes :)
i have been bying etnies kingpins for years very hard wearing and good if you have flat feet would highly recamend
