I think the only shortcoming are the short laces. I have wide feet and usually wear 9.5. I bought these in 9.5 and feel that they fit fairly well. The toe box is not very high but high enough to not squeeze the toes from the top. The width is the box is also adequate for me. I tried same size power line from Ride concepts prior to this and they were too tight at the toes.
Really awesome shoes I'm hard on shoes and demand a lot out of them. The marana mid crank managed to hold up for a decent bit of time befor I buggered them up. put it like this I wore them when boots would have been more appropriate and they held up to the demand. If they where made/available in size 14 I would give it five stars hands down. A second par is definitely in the works!!.
These are the best MTB shoes I have worn! The shank provides the right amount of stiffness that I was looking for and the Michelin sole offers the perfect grip. They are grippy enough to feel like I am attached/connected to my pedal, but they also allow me to make pedal placement adjustments if needed. Do yourself a favor and buy these!
Great Qualiy fromEtnies as always! I love the stiffness on the sole as it gives you enough feel on the pedal but also the confidence of solidness in your feet! Well done Etnies!!! 10 star rate.
I really like these so far. Great tow protection, I hit a rock hard with the tow of my shoe and I barely felt it. The flip side to that is it feels a little tight in the toe area and feet fall asleep a touch. They seem to be stretching out a touch now. Great grip and style though.
I bought these for my next pair of skate shoes. Definitely on the stiff side but once these shoes are broken in they are the most durable skate shoe around. I can shred with the up most confidence with my new maranas. I may never buy a different shoe.
I am loving these shoes. They grip on the pedals of my mountain bike super well and provide good protection. They are working way better than 5.10s ever did and they look wayyyyyyy better. Thanks Etnies for bringing some style to the MTB game.
Grew up wearing etnies so when I heard they made mountain bike shoes I knew it was a given. Use them on my enduro/downhill rides and not only are they super comfortable but super durable as well.
I bought these as a replacement for my 5 tens free riders and these shoes are great. The thing i notice most is that the 5.10s have a looser fit and wider toe box, while these are tighter and more secure on the foot. While riding the 5.10 are completely stuck to the pedal with no movement but my foot does move slightly within the shoe. using these my foot is completely secured in the shoe be it feels like the shoe has a little movement float against the pedal which i think in the pins on the pedal moving between the grooves of the sole. The rubber on these doesn't seem as soft as the 5.10 so they are easier to take your foot off for a dab or just stick it out while cornering. I thought this meant it would be less grippy on the trail, but while standing on fast rocky descents these did not lose grip once. overall i'm very happy with the quality of these shoes and i hope they last longer the my 5.10s
Best BMX race shoe on the market 👌
