Perfect fit, excellent stitching. 2 skate sessions in & no fraying ends yet Definitely would (and probably will) buy again
Roomy and comfy, great for skating, and stylish too. They seem to be in high demand particularly certain color combos. Good luck getting them if you've got a common size.
Most comfortable shoe I have ever worn. Have been wearing Faders since 2002. Will continue to buy these for life. I have many different colors. They go well with lots of styles.
Love em ... My favorite pair of kicks
My husband has loved his Etnies longer than I’ve known him. He’s really hard on his shoes but these hold up really well, and he finds them to be super comfortable and low-maintenance while still looking great. I try to buy him a new pair annually just because he loves them so much. Faders will be his go-to shoe as long as they are available.
Shoes fit as they should always good quality
Some of the comfiest ones I've ever bought!
Great fit, speedy delivery
absolutely no shoe better!
Definitely comfortable and stylish. I wear these for work, I do a lot of walking in the medical field. I get a lot of compliments on these😁 thank you, sincerely, happy customer.
I love these shoes!!
There are probably the most comfy sneakers I've ever purchased!
Have had a pair since middle school love them they are extremely comfortable weither you you skate or not
Love these shoes
2nd time buying these shoes
I absolutely love the shoes! Nice and snug to my feet. Couldn’t ask for better! Cant wait to buy more!
Very good looking and comfortable.
These shoes are great they fit perfect and stick to the board very well.
Absolutely no complaints!
They fit perfect an look amazing
All I want is this with hot pink and black.... Please make the old school chunky/padded tongue shoes black with the hot pink E and the hot pink rubber soles like you had in 2006.... I will gladly pay anything for these....
Great product, comfort style and they look nice
Love love love my kicks
These are great shoes. Good quality. I’ve owned several. They last a long time. Comfy. Good solid shoe. 👍🏻👍🏻
Look good came quick. Havnt laced them up let
I loves these shoes I have bad knees and in pain most of the time but when I wear my etnies I can last longer than in a regular shoe and I like how they don't wear out I have 6 pairs now and they all still look new
Great shoes for a great price. They fit very comfortably. Always buying Etnies.
I love Etnies! Fantastic shoes and I've been rocking these kicks for 20 years! Keep up the great work
pretty durable and nice and soft on the inside. been riding for a couple weeks now and they are barely starting to show. most definitly worth the sale price. i should have bought 5 pairs of them while i could get them on sale.
I never wore skate-shoes as a teen. I never liked the look of the fat tongue. Fast forward years later, I decided to give these shoes a try as I loved the look of the black dirty wash and was impressed with the reviews. I wanted a shoe that is black, durable, sturdy, and comfortable. These shoes felt light when walking, but at the same time the upper of the shoe felt stiff. The stiffness is good as it means they are durable. Another good thing about these shoes is that you don't have to un/tie them due to the fat tongue. You can put these shoes straight on or you can take them straight off without having to do the laces. These shoes definitely look good on a night out with black chinos and a floral short sleeved button down collared shirt.
Still awesome got same kind in a lighter blue??
Gift for my son, he loves them, his go to name brand ever since he was 14, hes 32 now lol
This are the wildest skate shoes around the jungle...
As always 5 stars! Love the deals and love the shoes. These are definitely a repeat purchase that I will continue to make. Etnies have been my shoe of choice for over 10 years!
Love Faders. This is the only brand I can buy a size 14 and know how they fit and how comfortable they are. Love these shoes.
Good looking and comfy. But I hope to see the Fader LS again.
They would be freaking great if the dam tounge would stay in the middle instead of sliding to the left all the time... :/ really sucks cause etnies are the only shoes I buy every year new pair.. most of the time cause they dont last all that long. But I still like em by just mad about the stupid tounge of my new shoes
I have been buying these shoes for years! (Im sad I cant get them in womens anymore..) they are so comfortable and the colors are amazing.
I'm so glad these are still available, I missed my old school durable skate shoes! Great price for great quality. I've also gotten so many compliments!
3rd pair and after these wear out and if they aren’t discontinued I’ll have a 4th pair. My go to dance shoes.
Eu uso esse sapato a anos mas estou com dificuldades de comprar aqui no Brasil e o site não oferece a opção de entrega para o Brasil, sou piloto de bmx.
Sic as usual. Etnies is the only shoe I wear for a reason. Tough!
I love these shoes. I'm kind if upset I can't get them in womens anymore.. But the shoes are great. My only problem is I can't get them tight enough to stay on the back of my foot, and the front is too tight. These are some great long lasting shoes. I usually can go 2-4 years before needing to buy new ones.
Great shoe !!
Great shoe, it lasts forever .
My son loved this pair even more. Theu fit true to size. Fast shipping . Great deal.
really handy footwear. stops your feet from getting cut when your walking outside. if i was to say one bad thing it would be that it could do with an multi media system and air conditioning. then i would be king
Elles sont parfaites ! Ma prochaine paire sera fort probablement noire, dès qu'il y en aura dans ma pointure ;)
Excellent! J'adore ces chaussures ! Alors que d'autres marques ont arrêté de produire ce type de chaussure un peu old school, Etnies possède cette superbe Fader qui correspond à mes attentes 🙂
I have had a couple of other brands since my last pair of Faders. I am happy to have my feet back in some Etnies. The most comfortable shoe I have owned.
Shoes R Badass
Super comfy. Great price, shipped hella fast, couldn't ask for a better experience.
I’ve been an Etnies customer since I was 15 years old, and 19 years later, they still provide the most comfortable, best-fitting shoes that I have ever purchased. Hands down my favorite shoes ever!
Very Superb and comfortable shoes. Great! Since I've discovered them, I can't live without! Enjoy
LOVE THEM !!
The shoes themselves are great, but I had to get a half size smaller because Etnies never seem to have any size 11s in stock of the majority of fader / fader 2 shoes.
As good quality as always, I love your shoes.
FAST DELIVERY AND THE PERFECT FIT. LOVE THEM!
Your product is always good and comfortable
The Fader is my favorite from Etnies, unfortunally in hungarian shops I couldn't find it. But it never stops to amaze me, it's not to hot for summer, but not too cold for winter, it's durable, and very comfortable. This new white Etnies logo looks really nice!
I have sworn by etnies since 2006 when i received my first green and white pair. I wore them for so long they grew with my foot. That was back before i became an injured veteran with a bad knee. I bought a new pair when i became pregnant with my daughter and i am about to buy another pair of the best most comfy, durable, well made shoe in the world. Please never stop making the faders and please keep an all black option.
Very comfortable shoes, nice color combination. Fast delivery and no delivery cost, superb!
The very best ETNIES shoe i've ever had. Thanks, guys!
Nice shoe! Would be good to see the blue and neon green stylings return, though
Great shoes, very comfortable. Only took a few days to break in, too. I usually wear a women's size 8, and these are perfect
They are very comfortable
really good shoes - comfy, great fit and nice leather
Killer shoes! Been buying them for 10 years!
My wife loves them. Colors match a lot of outfits. Lookn good.
Comfy and durable. Enough said
I like the shoes.
good shoes and good quality.
Awesome shoes! Comfy, well padded and durable. Great model. Hard to come by these days. Etnies, please don't stop making these! Note: shoe sizes seem to be correct (to my knowledge). Enjoy;)
I've owned a lair of Faders that have withstood the grueling fate of enduring High School, I only just recently replaced them after 7 years of near every day use with another pair of Faders and I am not disappointed in the least. These shoes are ridiculously durable and comfortable and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for those features in a shoe.
Those are my favourite shoes, really love them and I pretty much only wear variations of the fader.
Faders are awesome. They are the only athletic shoes I wear. Don't hesitate on buying the white color. These shoes are smooth and great. Go for it.
Awesome shoes. Etnies Faders are the only athletic shoes I wear. The comfort is great, and especially for those with somewhat wide feet, you have to own a pair of Faders. Great shoe!
They are just perfect to ride. Awesome shoes :-)))
Love this shoe, literally own several pairs. Wish they would keep making them in just white though. I refuse to wear any other color shoe. And I don't like shoes that have all kinds of designs all over them. This shoe is simple and not over designed.
The white fader has been a go to shoe for me since the death of the Calicut, which I was wearing exclusively all the way back to my teenage years. It's sad that these two styles are dying out since they're the only ones I insist on wearing. Etnies, I beg you to put these back into production. I refuse to wear any of these other styles or color schemes you carry. I would gladly pay more per pair just to be able to buy a normal white skate shoe that doesn't have 100 different colors and patterns and stuff all over it. Your "custom shop" was also the greatest thing in the world. I made many pairs of shoes with it before you put that to rest. Please bring this stuff back.
Super stylish, comfy, and easy to clean.
Great shoes, very comfortable.
Great service! Beautiful shoes! 😊
I have been wearing Etnies for over 15 years now and are about the only shoes I rock. These are just as comfortable as all the others and the quality is great. Keep up the great work and I will keep buying them.
Of the shoes rate for riding BMX never was a lot of different kinds of shoes and these are the best ones for BMX riding especially how well they hold up unlike Nikes that only last for like 6 months I have more than one pair of the fader and they're great shoes and they last for like 2 years the only problem I have is running out of room on the bottom if you wear your shoes out like that I do recommend these for any actions supports but their best for BMX
It is just what I expected. Although the sole looks clearer in the picture. I still like it!
These are the only sports shoes that fit my feet correctly! Most shoes aren't big enough for my super fat feet, but the Fader LS and the original Low Cut are the ones that work, nothing else fits .
Hi, I had a shoe like this in the past, and I was completely satisfied with it that time, and this isn't changed a bit. It's comfortable, nice looking, really worth it's price!
Boyfriend is very happy with his shoes, comfy and he really likes the tiny "breathing" holes on them.
Most comfortable shoe out of the box. Good price point and like the all black color option
LOVE these shoes...My grandson wears only these and they are great! Thanks so much!
GREAT SHOES! mine are black with a grey Etnies logo on the side and a brown rubber sole, with black rubber on the bottom. the size on the box is accurate, not tighter or looser. they look great, feel great. especially if you don't like the newer style of super mega slim and pointy toe skate shoes with no padding, and miss the 90's to early 00's style of cushy padded puffy round toe skate shoe. PLEASE NEVER STOP MAKING THESE SOLE TECH!!!
I love these, but I wish they still had womens faders. Missing those.
Etnies have been the only shoe I've worn for the last 16 years! I only wish you'd bring back some styles from the early 2000's
I have very bad bunions and have tried many different types of shoes. Etnies Faders are the best! They are wide and the arch doesn't cause me to put pressure on my bunions. I have been wearing them for years and have always described them as "pillows for your feet"!
My dad absolutely loves these shoes it's all he asks for gifts
As always this shoe is exactly what etnies is about, comfortable, long lasting, and great looking shoes that are above all others out there.
Awesome as usual!!
nice treads. fit my stillo.
I like it for my grandson. I buy it because you have very few in size 15. I would buy more if there was more of a selection in size 15. It is great that they come in 2 days. Thanks
I have an older (3 years now :0) pair of Faders that are still going strong, I really appreciate how comfortable these shoes are.
Excellent and cool!
Muy c¢modas, como siempre. Todos los productos Etnies, son geniales.
I don't skate or do anything active. In fact, I have cerebral palsy that gives me a great difficulty walking, so shoes are kind of an important thing to me. I've been wearing etnies for over 10 years, and have tried other brands but for some reason these always break in very fast, even in the "break in" period they have ample cushion and every new pair feels familiar. It's like coming home. Very durable soles, which are great because I tend to drag my feet a bit. One pair can last me about a year. No other shoe has offered me that durability with comfort. I like the fader and calicut style because they have that nice wide front toe that has plenty of room and give, plus I love the skate shoe style and they look awesome with practically any outfit. I can't see ever stopping wearing these shoes. Please don't stop making this particular cut, either. I love these understated yet amazingly comfortable shoes.
Love the style of these shoes and there comfortable too, they only thing I don't like is they sound like I'm walking in moon boots down my hallway at my work, maybe this will subside after they break in.
I love this shoes, the are confortable, beautiful and will last long. High quality
Great shoes, very comfortable and beautiful with some bloody red laces :D
I love this shoe. It is similar to my old pair of Fader SMU's that I still have in mint condition since I hardly ever wear them except on only special occasions. Now that I have these I don't have to really worry about wrecking them but they keep clean if you keep up on them. Definitely recommend to anyone who likes Etnies.
I have simple tastes. I haven't skateboarded since I was a teenager, but I still find these types of sneakers to be the most comfortable and the best looking. Simple. No nonsense. all black. This is the only shoe I ever want to own. Don't ever cancel this line or this black on black option.
These shoes have proven to be durable as well as comfortable and for a reasonable price, which is why I am going to keep buying the Fader for the next season. I think in terms of the material used for the shoe always blows my mind because I've managed to keep a pair for more than 4 years and still looks like new. (A quality that Etnies must keep) The reason why I need a new pair of shoes is because the sole was too wormed out.
This is my favourite model/type of shoe. I buy a new pair each time the previous one gives out, and with heavy use that still brings me to only one new pair each year.
Great shoe! Please do not stop making the classic all black (not too many logos) shoe. This has always been my favorite shoe of all time! Keep it up Etnies! Cheers
I bought these shoes for my son he was very happy with them. They were what he wanted the price was reasonable service was quick to my surprise. If this style is still available in the future I would definitely buy again. I was happy with the service and product. Thank you
Please keep making these
Please keep making these.
I have a had time finding great shoes for my son, and your site has been perfect. I was a little worried about buying shoes online, but the fit is great and he's very happy. Thanks!
they are great,,,like always
Great shoes! Very comfortable! Would buy them again in a heartbeat!
this is the third time i`ve bought this kind of shoes (the same model), unnecessary more word
Old good design and quality :)
Please keep making the Fader series.
shipped quick got what i paid for saved some cash and avoided having to drive a town over to the mall. overall super comfy shoes that look slick. there were no faults or damages. 10/10 would buy again
My all time favorite shoe for comfort and fit.
The Fader is one of the best shoes out there!
I wear Etnies Fader collections since at least 2006. It is by far my prefered brand and design. My oldest pair is still in good shape, even after a daily use for years. Note: some editions are not as strong as before (the rubber is changing, and brown 2006 was the best year). First time I buy it online: Maximum comfort. Classy. Right size. In one word: perfect to me.
MOST COMFORTABLE SHOE TO WEAR NO MATTER WHAT YOU ARE DOING WORK ARE PLAY !!!
This review is for the Fader White/White/Light Grey shoes These shoes are absolutely incredible. They're made of quality material, the white and green go very well together and the girls think they're sexy. Not to mention they fit perfect and are very comfortable. I would recommend these to others but I don't want to see anyone else around me wearing these particular ones. They're just too fantastic.
Good shoe im happy with them
Good enough ;)
Etnies and nothing else for my feet :)
Nice shoe, had to buy them a size larger though. Unlike the RVM's, they fit like a glove. The Faders are more sturdy and ones used for a while. Bloody good shoe!
awesome shoe !!
Super confortables, le logo est cousu. Bonne qualit‚
Fits like a glove, love it! Why don't they sell them in shops any more? Bunch of lame converse style kooks......
One of the most comfortable shoe I have ever owned love them!
great shoe's. Like them from the first second.
Comfy skate shoes!
I have been buying this exact model for the past few years. It is comfortable, it fits perfectly around the ankle, so the shoe does not slip off when walking and it prevents your feet from easily getting wet in rainy weather. When the Fader disappeared from the Bulgarian market, I turned to the internet and I am really glad Etnies still produces it. When I wear out this pair I will buy one just like it again.
Is not my first product from Etnies , so you can have an idea in how I like your shoes.
Perfect size and very fast delivery very good.
all perfect...etnies the number 1!
very very beautiful shoes!!!!!!!
bought for a grandson who says they are very comfortable . he's satisfied. works at grocery store, sacking, walking, gathering carts from the parking lot.
I love the blue foxing and laces, they look much brighter in person. Although I can't say the material would hold up to the most intense skate sessions. I hope they bring out more colors like this design, as a girl I don't want to wear gaudy "neon pink and yellow sparkles" all the time.
Bought for my son who rates these shoes for comfort and fit. Always buys etnies now when looking for a skater type casual shoe. Very well made. The last pair he had lasted years so great value for money.
I love these shoes. Just bought a 2nd pair (different colour).
I work in concert production and constantly have to hustle back and forth from out front of stage to backstage. My son is a skater and got me hooked on Etnies years ago. The Etnies are the only shoes that I and several of my crew member have found that can provide our feet with protection from the constant pound of running around on the concrete stages and such. Etnies provide a great value for the price and comfort to our weary feet. Thanks for making our production days much better, by having the solid black available again! Tammy Seymore
They are great. I like the older style with the removable soles, because the way I lace my shoes i tuck them under the soles. Needless to say i can't do it with these.
The world is our playground, and only Etnies shoes make it possible.
great for price
The insoles are surprisingly thick and very comfortable. I walk around allot, and these shoes feel really good once they're broken in (the toe area is a little stiff for the first few days). I like that they are all black, it was actually kind of hard for me to find an all black shoe in this kind of style, wtf? The material is pretty cool, its like a felt/leathery type stuff, it feels waterproof, but I know it isn't, you would just ruin your shoes if your used them in water. But I like them, they're comfortable, I can wear them to work and school, and they're black but not shiny black, more of a flat black.
Love Etnies! I have been buying this style of Etnies for years. Got these on sale along with another pair. I rarely buy from another company.
had etnies stuff before, first time ive ordered off the site. very quick delivery. good shoes, i always tend to wear black trainers anyway. in the sale aswel, so even better. and got vouchers for surfstitch which i used. will defo shop here again. p.s. dc shoes have been terrible. still waiting for items 3 weeks later. boo
My daughter is extremely happy with this purchase.
the shoes are sick ....but if they glowed in the dark they would be even sicker and if etnies had alot more colors of the same shoe that would be great...but what ever im satisfied
these were my third pair of etnies and as always i wasn't disappointed they are comfortable love the black on black and these shoes are built well so that last etnies are the only brand of shoes i buy.
It fits very good on the foot.Very look a like!
This shoes are comfortable, happening everywhere...
this is my 7th pair of FADER ... I Wont buy any other brand again.
Month ago i ordered two pairs of Black/Dirty Wash. Order was delivered fast and without any mistakes (Size or Color/Style). Love free shipping for orders over 50?. :) I buy only Etnies shoes for 8+ years now. So next pair will definitely be from Etnies. I like how comfortable all shoes were/are and i like styles as well. But would really like to se back something like this one: http://etnies.com/shop/santiago-8/black/ I also liked style with yellow logo.
It's my all time favorite, It once save my foot in a moto accident, I have several pairs and it will be my definitive forever shoe, I barely wear others I hope this model will be always available, otherwise will have to buy the rest of the stock for the rest of my life :)
I love it.
I absolutely love these shoes!!! .... They are super comfortable, and look out standing! The only reason I gave the value **** 's is because i've only had them for about 4 months and baby them. I plan to buy atleast 2 more colors of these.
My son loves these etnies. They are very true to size and fit him perfect.
I love these damn shoes. They look amazing and feel even more comfortable. My feet are very wide and are not supported through most comapanies, especially since I have a high arch. I've always bought skater shoes because they come wide, but not always with success. This is my first time buying anything from Etnies and I'm completely thrilled with my purchase, they fit perfectly on my odd sized feet. This is definitely my dream design.
Very nice shoes! sometimes they can get easily dirty, but then again they're named Dirty Wash :) Very comfortable and nice design with thick padding in the tongue. Sometimes when it's not very light outside, you can't see the Etnies logos and they look completely black. But just very cool shoes
This product was purchased as a gift. Good quality product, very impressed with the speedy delivery.
Great shoes, very comfortable. The first week they make a clack sound, but that disappeared very soon.
This is your perfect choice for a skate shoe that you can wear it everywhere. It's got nothing fancy about it, clean classical skate shoe shape and of course comfy.
It's my second pair of Etnies shoes, quite difficult to find in my town, so also first time shopping online! And it was a great experience, really nice price and they fit perfectly in my feet. Great design and very comfortable. Thanks!
This shoe is very comfortable and cool, for 40? it was a gift... I love you etnies! You did it again!
I've always worn Etnies shoes and I like the design of the Fader. It is just too bad that too many of these new shoes are made from this cheap nubuck stuff that is nowhere near as durable as suede or leather. If this style and color would come out in suede, I would love it.
I liked your shooes but it was a just a little problem with the adress,lucky in the end i got them
Absolutely atrocious! I feel like my toes have gone through desert storm after wearing these sneakers. My previous pair of Faders were so comfortable that it might as well been made out of unicorn leather, because everyone knows that unicorn leather is the best type of leather ever. But this current pair was probably made with the leather cut from the devil's foreskin. Don't buy this.
These shoes are pretty good. I'm still breaking them in,but so far I'm enjoying them. They're a bit of a tight fit at first. Especially for those who don't have narrow feet. They felt almost painful to wear for the first week or so,but after awhile it all goes away and then comes the comfort. The softness of the soles make it feel like you're walking on Nerf foam. The tightness,plus the soft cushion allow your feet to stay dry much better than your standard tennis shoes. The style looks great. I'm a simple person and prefer dark colors. Nothing too flashy. So the Black Dirty Wash was perfect for me. Very pleasing to the eye. All this for the price its at is beyond worth it. I may actually buy another pair soon!
Your shoes are my daughters favorite shoes. These are actually going to be her wedding shoes. Fader shoes with a wedding dress...
These shoes look fine, and are comfortable, however, the pair I received in the mail make a clicking noise every time I step forward with my left foot. I have no idea what is making that noise. It's not surface dependent, and it's pretty annoying.
