This is my first time wearing the Etnies Veer. These are my daily shoes for everything. I go to work, the store, and formal occasions in these. They are great and fashionable in any circumstance. I work on concrete floors in usually uncomfortable temperatures, and all around this is a perfect shoe. For work I wear thin socks. If it is gonna be cooler I wear thick socks. I am not a first timer when it comes to the quality michelin soles, and I expect these to last me for several years before I need another pair. These shoes are comfortable enough to spend 8 hours on concrete in, and breathable enough to withstand uncomfortable temperatures no problem. If you struggle with Athletes foot these are a great pair of shoe to keep away the sweaty conditions some other shoes mantain that cause that. I run cross country, so I search all the time for a shoe that will not collect sweat or quickly degrade in bad weather conditions. All I have to say on that front is this: Go with a pair of Etnies shoes, They will last you a long time and the whole time after you break them in. For extra durability look for the Michelin cupsole variety. Hope these shoes treat you as well as they do me. Thanks again to Etnies for making a brand worth praising.
The Veer was built with an outsole created out of Michelin Performance rubber and an EVA Midsole for both durability and grip. The Slim, streamlined silhouette blended with the thinly padded tongue and collar lining, create a perfectly snug and secure fit. Comfortable, flexible, and durable, the Veer has something to offer any type of skater.
- Outsole made with a Michelin performance rubber compound
- Multi-directional tread with a forefoot flex notch for flexibility
- Foam Lite 1 insole
- EVA midsole
- Slim, streamline silhouette
- Thinly padded tongue and collar lining
- Mesh tongue and perforated quarter panel for breathability
This shoe was a like gold this cupsole is pleasant change from the joslin 1. I love etnies style and function.
I love these shoes so much. I completely understand why Trevor McClung skates these religiously.
Love the shoes. The feel and tenaciousness. The only down side is they take a bit of breaking in. Transitioning from a well worn, broken in shoe to a cupsole takes a minute so keep that in mind.
Great shoes. Great price
Comparing them to the other Etnies I have had for skating these are far above, both the look, board feel, and midsole impact. I have three pairs of Veers in different colorways, some fit a little tighter than the other pair but after skating them and breaking them in they stretch to your feet and lose any over tight feel. I recently got the Joslin 2s Marana's and they are less stiff with the new Michelin sole they come with and that toe vent pattern as well seem to make a big difference, and the strap. I would say that this the only real difference besides the look and that the Joslin 2 Marana's with new Michelin seem to be less stiff off that bat and feel more broken in immediately. The Marans feel like they hug your feet inside, and the Veers feel like outside is wrapped around your feet. I definetely enjoy skating both shoes and are worth picking up if you usually skate Marana's and like the colorways of the veers.
Size 10 is what I wear they are to small. 10.5 are to big wish you made shoes 10.25 that would fit perfect
Good board feel,great padding! Fits true to size.. durable material!
Got a 10 but realized it was a little too big for me. I should've gotten a 9.5, but i just sticked with the 10. My favorite things about this shoe are the flex grooves on the sole and the 2 piece toe. The flex grooves make every push feel grippy and powerful. The 2 piece toe lasts quite a while. Pulled out the superglue after the stitching ripped, but it was durable even without the glue. Lasted me around 4 months of cruising and street skating.
Excellent quality, great comfort and look great as well. Would definitely purchase from them again.
This things are like glue with that Michelin sole
Excellent quality, very durable and also made with the best materials. Highly recommended #loveEtnies
I love how these look, but i just wish they had maybe a little bit more padding in them and the tongue centering straps. The shoe is pretty easy to repair. I superglued the toe stitching right out if the box and when the stitching ripped i simply superglued the toe piece backtogether. Even if i didnt superglue them they wouldve still lasted me quite a while.
These seemed to be too wide for my foot. I wish they were just slightly narrower.
I love this shoes give me a real comfort in my mountain bike
a tad more narrower than I thought, decent shoe, was hopin it was puffier
These saved me from rolling my ankle. Your foot will sit lower in the shoe so theres overall more ankle support. I havent rolled my ankle im these, but we'll see. Good so far!
Great heel support more comfy than nikes
At first, these shoes were a little too wide for my foot, but i changed the insole to a thicker one and it fit perfectly. Maybe get this shoe if your feer are slightly wider than normal.
These are my favorite shoes! Please make these shoes forever.
Ive been wearing the same pair since December. I skate in them every once in a while and i wear them to work too. Very comfortable and durable shoe. Definitely gonna get a pair of the white ones when these are finished.
I have skated these shoes for 2 weeks, and within the first week, the first layer of suede ripped, the bottom Michelin outsole was very grippy, but I was very disappointing with the durability, the whole toecap had ripped by week two, would not recommend.
These shoes do the job 👌🏽
This shoe was a very durable one. I've been wearing the veer for skating and the same pair to work. Its been about 3 months and they are just now about to blow open. Thats great for me!
good shoe could have a single toe piece but good outsole wish the toebox was a little pointier for some flip tricks
Super comfy, excellent grip, haven't yet skated em but they're in the rotation.
Veer: Black/Camo I'm size 11 in the Jameson Vulc MT, RVM's, Marana Vulcs, but 11.5 in Joslin and the Marana. These shoes fit a little small in the toe box in your normal size, so I suggest going up 0.5 a size. I am used to the Michelin sole on the Marana and the Joslin, so I was eager to try this new formula and see how they compare. I love the upper's construction, with the mult-paneled layering, since this helps keep the shoe more rigid, not bag out super quick, and be durable. I'm hoping that holds true when I actually skate them. These feel like a slightly slimmer Marana, but with a stitched toe panel instead of a TPR toe cap. I haven't skated these yet, but they feel great just walking in them. The toe box fit is a medium width: not too narrow and not too wide (in your correct size), the heel/ankle feels substantially cushioned, but less than the Joslin and the Marana. Somewhat similar to the eS models: Accel Slim or Swift 1.5. My only gripe with the Veer is that they don't come with the Pro Foam 1 insole, so I had to pull out the stitched insole and swap with a different insole of choice to increase the comfort/support to my preference. Overall, I think it's a great, mid-puff silhouette that is supportive and comfortable, while also a great canvas for experimental colorway and material combos in the future.
Ok, the Michelin thing...was kind of skeptical at first...but, why not!! 10 people have asked me about what 'Etnies' is, sent them to your sight. Guys, do you still make denim anymore, I'm sure you do. Get to the point- a sweet grippy sole. Perfect for my board. I will definitely purchase again!! Wish I could have bought a pro shoe!! Support your pro team/riders!! I bet that is a hell of a video!!
Just overall a good shoe. Durability is good, Impact protection is good for what im doing, Flick is on point. should last me another 2 months or so. Ive skated them for about a month and a half.
So I was needing a new pair of shoes and I thought, I should get these Etnies Veer shoes in grey. So after I did that I waited a day or two for them to come. They came as expected. Now I’m trying them on and thinking, man, these are my new shoes...this is who I am now. And so from then until now, those became my shoes. I now wear them. Some day they will not be my shoes any longer, but all good things (especially shoes) must one day come to an end. I’m proud I have them tbh.
Literally my favorite shoe right now. This and the marana are my favorite shoes and I can't even skate any other shoes the way I skate etnies!
The shoes are pretty good. The only complaint I have about them is the width. It was a little too wide for me, but nothing too bad. Still a great shoe.
Comfy. It only took me half a day to break them in.
Its a great shoe. Ive been skating them for a month now and I'm just starting to wear through the first layer of suede. Impact support is great for it being a slimmer shoe. The simple design hides the technology within.
Very comfortable, quality made and true to size. Great customer service with fast shipping.
Super comfy, breathable, seems like they will hold up well too. Though I've only had them for about a month now, so I can't say for sure.
