I've been a hardcore Vans fan since I started riding BMX, since Vans only produce Old School Low Top "special/custom design" shoes, I felt like they sold out to people who just wanted them for fashion. I've been rocking these new Etnies since I got them, and I have to say; Great fit, plenty of cushion around my ankles (I've wrecked with Vans Old schools and almost slashed my Achilles tendon) the Etnies provide good feet/toe protection in comparison. Plus the base design gives better grip on peddles than the Vans grid pattern. I'm 100% stoked with Etnies. Thanks for still making shoes like this! p.s. last time I saw your team ride around western NY was back in 2006 at X-Dreams Skatepark in Rochester, NY. You gotta swing back through for a demo at Breaking Free Skate park with Kink Bikes

I buy Etnies whenever I can, and they never fail to be an awesome product. Super comfy and durable, with style.
These are comparable to the Fader 2 for me. I actually love the way these look and fit. I would like to see the same exact swivel with a pink sole and E please pretty please and the faders 2s as well
Nice shoes , a bit stiff at first , but then I like a shoe that’s a shoe , not a shoe they turns into a slipper after one week
