The shipping and handling was just great. The thing that pulls down the review is the shoe itself. I was so happy a few years ago when I started buying Marana Willow Vulcs. They fitted my feet perfectly. Now they've been made slimmer and is a pain. I have to keep them in shoe blocks for a few months before I can wear them. But then they are great. Still, it was a big downer when the design was changed and I hope they will be made a tad wider in the future.
The Marana Vulc is a slimmer version of the instant classic Marana that is built on a vulcanized outsole. The rubber printed toe cap offers durability and the STI Evolution Foam insole provides excellent rebound and cushioning without packing out. The mesh tongue and collar lining provide breathability while the reinforced upper provides support.

Introducing NEW Spring '18 colorways of the etnies Marana Vulc
The shoes arrived quickly and fit as expected. They seem durable from a first brush. Definitely well suited for skating or BMX
Absolutely love this design. This is exactly how a skate shoe should feel, look and perform. They are stiff and puffy which means support and foot protection - two lost attributes in modern vulcanized shoes....Great flick too, they feel nice and light on the feet and board. I just acquired my second pair of these in the mid-top version and they're even better! Love em. But, unfortunately, they could be even BETTER if you guys stopped cutting corners over there and still included STI insoles and (extra grippy) 400 NBS outsoles that were originally intended for this shoe. I realize the game is tough and you guys have to make things affordable...but, damn, at least start using better/stronger glue for the outsoles. I had to shoe-goo the bottoms back together after 2 skate sessions! That sucked... All things considered this awesome design has a lot of potential and I really hope you guys keep doing more cool colorways in the MT version! Thank you Sole Tech! Thank you skateboarding!
One of the sickest pairs! Great shows and a great company!
I would like to get this shoe if it comes in a dark brown like the Jameson Vulcs. Great looking shoe.
Please release this exact design but in a dark brown with a white sole and toe cap! I like the sleek design :P
Great flick with these shoes. I skated with vans but they are disappointing compared to these. I find them very comfortable and they mold the foot very well, everything i expected
Perfect size, High confort.
this the best shoes for skateboarding!
Excellent customer support, very efficient.
Comfortable shoe but sole started coming apart after only a few days or wearing them. Pretty lame.
Excelente zapatillas muy comodas y duraderas, además de ser esteticamente muy buenas.
Love them!! At first they are a bit stiff but once broken in best skate shoes ever made!
Really love the padding and secure feel of the shoe, will definitely be buying more shoes from the site! great shipping too.
Really nice shoe, really like that I can feel the pedals when riding BMX, very comfy.
Perfect fit, soft and a rubber band to protect from griptape. Perfect
nice and wide. i like the thickness and shape of the tongue. the vamp is a little tight over your toes at first but will break in after a few days. MORE WIDE SHOES PLEASE, ETNIES! especially cupsoles.
Extremely comfortable shoe for activity and walking around. The sole is very comfortable like expected and has a cool design. I'll buy these in the future if they're still available.
Great shoe! Stylish and seems durable. Very flexible and comfortable.
Good fit. Good look. Comfy.
Prompt delivery, sooo comfy and good quality. I am a woman, i wear 5.5UK and these are perfect! will be buying again!
Very comfortable, nice quality, awesome look, no complaints
These shoes are dope Etnies for life
These shoes are badass,there are stylish and durable, its what i need thanks Etnies
Was wanting a green pair of Etnies, these look and feel great!
Comfy and durable
This are the most comfortable shoe... they skate at the best level!
Good looks, Good duability, Good bordfeeling (Sorry 4 Bad english)
Dope shoes first time trying etnies and loving them 👌
awesome shoes for an awesome price
Everything is great about the shoe and im loving the toe cap. But the sole rips a little easily. May just be my grip but other than that the shoe is the best.
Excellent delivery service from Germany, got them just in time for Christmas , thank you very much.
Very nice, comfy and not too bulky, great
Amazing board feel but doesn't wear fast. Definitely buying again.
Purchased as Xmas pres for my partner. Hard to get shoes that match the quality and style of these Etnies in New Zealand (only limited kinds available here). They look great and he's very happy! Thanks
ordered them for my son. You always have his size, its 14.....
Best shoe I have ever skated. Killer design, fit, and functionality.
I haven't skated them yet but based on the other reviews and the description of the design I think they are gonna be great! And also they look really cool as well as durable
Great shoe. Before these I had some Adidas that got completely shredded in 2 months. I've been skating these hard for the same amount of time and they show almost no ware. The only thing I changed was I added some more cushiony insoles.
True to.size. Quality construction.
Great shoe. Nice black/gray contrast Highly recommend
These shoes are beyond amazing, boardfeel was spectacular they are crazy durable best skate shoes I've ever had by far
Great all round Skate shoe... Good balance and grip for learning tricks. Good support for skating...
After a couple of days they were already broken, the sides were loose from the shoe and a brown spot on the sides developed, but the shoes walk nice
They are comfortable and have a killer design! Definitely I would buy them again
Comfortable and resistant, They are perfect for common use and for ride. To keep it simple these are very good shoes.
Sharp looking shoe!
Have to say the pictures gave me a different idea of the shoe overall. But still stylish and I would say they're worth the price. I'm no skater to talk about the full comfort but they trully have a good feeling, foot feels protected. I hope the sides don't start falling apart as it is a common problem of these shoe styles. 8/10 overall so far! Try them out.
really good jumping down stuff and awesome board feel and damn good looking
My son thought the edging a bit pink but we sorted that with a permanent grey art pen!
I bought these for my son for his birthday and he loves them!! They are not getting neat up as quickly either. :)
look awesome but build quality is lacking. normal get jameson 2 but thought i'd try a different design but they are already showing signs of distress despite not doing anything in them to warrant the state they have become
Very good product
Really awesome shoes . I directly felt de differences between these and my old shoes , it xas way more comfortable !
These shoes are perfect to practise skate!!
I've enjoyed wearing the Marana Vulc in purple. They fit my style, and are comfortable. I'm a lady, but I got the mens shoes based on color - not all girls like pink all over everything, we do have other favorite colors! ;) They are wide enough for my feet, which is really nice (ladies shoes most often pinch my toes, which is another reason I bought the men's style). The only "problem" I've had so far is it hurting the outer edge of my foot, but not really bad. My feet hold up well in them for a full day of activities. Did I mention they are comfortable and they just look good?
Great pair of shoes! Always have been happy with Etnies shoes.
I can't comment on how these would be as a skate shoe; I got them to wear as a casual shoe. They have been a great purchase! I have found them to be true to size, very comfortable, and stylish. Similar to the popular Vans but they have a little more to them. Yet, they are not at all bulky or excessively padded as some skate shoes seem to be. They just look great. I got them in white and there is a great variety of colors. I'm thinking of getting another pair. Great shoe; even more so considering the price.
Great shoe! Half a size too big, but other than that... Amazing!
fit great they still skate awesome they've held up and havent blown out yet and im 2 months in. i should of bought a 9 the sizes are just a tiny bit bigger in the vulcs. i may have stretched these out either way they still are awesome shoes and will last for months on end. so I would suggest them to an avid skater who loves vulc shoes
The best shoes around...
Cool shoes, half a size too big, a bit wider than the original Marana.
I love the look of this shoe and was super excited to get to skate it. Unfortunately the shoe was almost a whole size to big so I had to return them. The only other thing I could say is my first impression was that they were a bit on the heavier side but felt like a super durable shoe! Hopefully I can get a pair that fits right!
This shoe is amazing, but if your prone to ankle rolling these shoes aren't the best I've rolled my ankles twice in these. Once like never befor I haven't been able to skate for a month to fully heal. I don't blame my injury on the shoes, but think the would be better with some ankle support.
better to skate in these than vans. :D
My 12 3/4 year old loves them! He won't wear any other shoes. I like the way they look too.
