Amazing shoes been skating for about 2 weeks flick is unmatched - I skate two pairs of shoes interchangebly and when I would try to kickflip in the other new balance shoes it was way harder if that makes sense - the grip and flick on the joslin drags the board up more and makes me get like foot and a half high kickflips with unmatched catch and even-ness of the flip not rocket flip only problem is etnies yall gotta restock. like every colorway is sold out in pretty much every size. other then that amazing shoe my favorite shoe ive ever skated so far

Best skate shoes ever! Comfortable, durable, and stylish. What every skater is looking for is put into the Joslin pro model shoe. And they partnered with Michelin! What else do you need for proof to make this your next skate show?
High quality materials, great design! can not go wrong with this shoe.
Chaussures de superbe qualité,très confortable,vraiment solide et durable dans le temps.Une marque de confiance et de qualité pour le prix,j'en suis ravis au quotidien.
I have 3 different pairs of Joslin shoes and love them all. Very comfortable and great looking.
These are great! True to size even if they feel tight at first. The grip on bottom is excellent and the protection from the padding is something I needed from other thinner made skate shoes. Overall one great skate shoe that should be worn by more skateboarders because that’s what their built for!!
Best shoe man! Please keep making the OG Joslin. Fits true to size, nice and roomy and with classic silhouette.
Absolutely amazing. I love these shoes because the bottom of the shoe grips to the board very nicely, but the sole slides across the grip tape immaculately when doing any kind of flip trick. its super easy to catch your board mid-air because of the hold they have on the thing. what I have noticed with other shoes is that the sole will grip on to the board and launch it when you try to flick, with these that doesn't happen.
Dope shoes. look forward to shredding them
chris joslin is a goat and his shoes lived up to my expectations.
Amazing shows. Perfect fit. Delivery was alsof very tast
Hella comfy. Decent amount of grip. Easy to maintain. Stylish as well.
I've been skating and wearing Maranas and Joslins for about 4 years now and I never wore a shoe that could even come close to comfort and durability. Keep up the good work you guys!
A little tight for wide feet my little toe rubs in the right shoe. Everything else is perfect. Perfect shoe for freestyle, the Maranas had stitching on the inside of the foot that tore doing truck stand 50/50 tricks, these don’t and they are taking a beating with hardly any wear. The sole is strong enough to support your foot well too without being so thick you can’t feel what the board is doing. Thanks Andre and Joslin!
Buy this shoe, now! Comfortable, durable, understated design, and is worth your money! Most people should probably go 0.5 size up in these since they run kind of small. Similar fit/sizing as Marana and Joslin 2.
Christmas gift, my son was over the moon with these trainers, probably wears them to bed,
Amazing skate shoe, rlly durable, flick is incredible, and style is great. Would be the perfect skate shoe if I had loads of money!
*****5 stars Thank´s etnies 4 very good Service&support
Love these shoes they’re my third pair
love the wider fitting
Best skate shoe!
Really nice trainer. Really comfortable fit well would buy again
Top Notch Shoe. Never wear anything else & that's from a 53yrs old. Non skate Boarder!!!!!
The best for BMX, trust me:)
Chris Joslin is a beast, this shoe is amazing too. You can skate in them right away without breaking them in and they are super comfy and last a decent amount of time. I'll be buying 1 pair a month from now on
Everything perfect. Thanks!
I skate etnis for 5 years good shoes nice board feel and great impact
Awesome shoe with comfortable and easy fit.
These Joslin Etnies is the perfect shoe for me, I have wide feet. The shoes has the perfect width and thickness of the cushion around the heel. Also, the sole is very thick, which is a plus for me since a skate a lot of stairs.
Actually the best etnies shoes, obviously the best shoes. Thanks Etnies i've been waiting for a long time but finally you did it!
Quality and durable!! Comfortable for long sessions
Bought these for my son (19 years) and he absolutely loves them! I also bought him a long sleeved top and a shirt and both look great, fit well and are of a great quality. Highly recommend!
Top quality sneaks as expected from Etnies. Super comfy and grippy.
When it comes to skate shoes Etnies never fail. These are very stylish, love the colour, remind me of a similar design I had back in the late 90's. Very comfortable to wear as an every day trainer.
Awesome shoe 👌
TFW your shoes complete your identity. These shoes are an extension of my mind/body/soul.
Best skate shoe ever!!
SO FLY AND RAD.
These shoes are incredible! (I got the purple/white) I’ve been skating them for about a week and they still look almost brand new. The color is so vibrant and the hidden toe cap works extremely well. Usually I only wear my skate shoes to skate to ensure they last as long as possible, but I wear these everywhere because they’re so perfect.
Best shoe ever
My favorite skate shoes! I wear them so much I already need a new pair! Ordering now!!
I got the grey ones years ago when they first came out and ive honestly only skated them for the past 5 or 6 months. Super great! This is the kind of shoe you can wear as an everyday shoe and a skate shoe. I cant wait for them to restock on the black/gum ones. I wanted those for so long.
The perfect skate shoe. Amazing grip.
Man I'm 35 back skating and I love this shoe wish came in in midtop version.
Etnies is the best skate show period. And the Joslin model is probably the best shoe ever made I bought this show and it looks better in person. Will never buy another brand of show as long as I live
Awesome shoes, these are so comfortable to skate with, will decently get another pair when needed.
Didn’t take long at all to arrive
I haven't worn non-black shoes in years, but I love this color.
I love these new shoes. Super comfy and durable.
Let me start by saying these are the best cup sole you could put on your foot, for Comfortability, for protection, Even for board feel. I’m not new to skating impact and with these on My feet it’s like jumping on my bed. I give this shoe a 10/10
These sneakers are so comfortable. There the Only shoe I wear skating now
Love the shoes. Been a long time fan. Thank you for quality product
Shoe can be skated fresh out of the box, coming from a person who only skated vulc shoes; but i did microwave them for a bit. They were super comfortable but slightly bulk in the ankle area. the flick is great, not too grippy or too slippery, the impact protection is amazing
Laces are trash.. but shoes are super snug and feel good
great shoes crazy comfortable. only thing i didn't like was the white around the laces but took fabric marker and painted them black.... MUCH better!
Comfortable, the hidden eyelets didn’t really protect the laces, hidden toe cap didn’t last to long. Would be better if they came with another set of laces. Had to shoe goo within like the first few weeks of having them. The insoles did the job, and the Michelin sole was really durable. Overall good skate shoe.
Bought these for BMX, remind me of 90's skate shoes, love them, great quality!
These are crazy good. I had a pair of shoes before these and i ended up shooting a skateboard into my achilles. It was hurting until i got these. The padding in the heel and collar area keeps it stable and comfortable.
Love these shoes great flick and durability cant wait till joslin 2 gets all black colorway.
Best skate shoes
Ordered these kicks and the came like ridiculously fast with ordinary shipping. Tracking information was quickly available and I'm very satisfied with the whole online ordering process. The shoes themselves are super comfortable and fit as expected. The gumsoles are great if skateboarding is your deal!!!!
fucking legit product
Best shoe on the market !!
I go through shoes like crazy especially on the toe on both shoes for regular and switch kickflip tricks. The extra material under the leather really put a buffer. Great heel support to most shoes I bruise my heels pretty bad in on high impact tricks. Also of you have a wider foot these will be perfect and snug. Been skating Etnies Es and Emerica since 1997 and other than the design and logos pretty much nothing has changed they were great then and great now.
Best skate shoes ever. I love doing flip tricks and have been doing as many tricks as I possibly can do and I am now just starting to get a hole after 1.5 months. The interior toecap is doing its job and in all seriousness I think I could get another month out of these shoes. So overall this show is very comfy, needs no break in time, super durable, stylish, love this shoe best skate shoe out there highly recommend. So stop reading this and get yourself a pair.
Third pair of these bad boys....tough long lasting shoe
Ass always, an excellent pair of kicks. Usually refuse to buy shoes online as I prefer to try them on but Etnies sizing works so well with my foot size I had no issues.
The Michelin soles are really grippy and flexible. It took a few days to completely wear them in, which is how it should be. Really like the padded tongue as well. The Joslin is a really good blend of technical progression and classic etnies styling. The fit is Really good for fat footed dudes like me also. Joslin is loyal to sole tech and love him for that.
Comfortable shoes. I have a medical issue with my feet and needed a totally flat shoe . Good construction.Wish the footbed was a little thicker in the metatarsal area.
The Chris Joslin Pro is a beautiful shoe! Not only is it clean in its design, but it is supportive and durable, as well! Throw some black laces in there and it really makes these shoes pop! Size 11.5 - Grey/White/Gum Shoe runs a little small, I suggest ordering 0.5 size a up from your normal size. Toe box may be fairly tight and cramped if you don't 0.5 size up. They are comfortable and padded in the ankle and tongue areas, while still being moderately thinner elsewhere for reliable boardfeel and protection.i suggest walking around in them for a couple days to get the feel of the shoe and let them break in easier, but you can skate them out of the box with little to no problems. The flick is amazing on these shoes. The rubber grips the board well and flicks nicely. There is a toecap underneath the suede and it is almost as durable as the suede itself is. Clean silhouette with the right amount of tech to handle whatever skating you like! I have skated this shoe/colorway before and it lasted me at least 3 months of skating, and I do a LOT of kickflips, tre flips, backside flips, etc. If you're looking for a quality cupsole shoe that doesn't blow out quickly and feels good through the majority of its life, get these!!
While no skating shoes last as long as we want them to, these shoes are the most durable skating shoes my son has used yet. I would never buy Vans again for skating.
My buddy and i skated our pairs of these at the same time. He ripped a hole in his on the first day and after that it was just not holding up. Mine however, are still going string after 2 months. Maybe he got a defective pair.
Favorite shoe out now.
These skates so good held up for a month and a half of skating every day the toe cap lasted longer than I expected great shoe in every way
Chris was right when he said "once you skate these, you wont be able to skate another shoe." I tried these and loved them. When i tried a different shoe i couldnt get used to it. This is my number one shoe for sure.
One of the best skate shoes on the market presently! Cant wait for the Joslin 2!
Joslin created a beautiful, yet durable pro model shoe with etnies! It combines a padded and comfortable upper with a supportive and firm cupsole. Amazingly, the Michelin sole is grippy, yet durable, while still providing ample boardfeel. They take a little bit of time to break them in, but they're so good you can skate them right of the box and have not much trouble with them. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to protect their feet, look good skating, and kill it on the board.
Best skate shoes I’ve ever owned. These shoes are extremely tough, the soles will wear out before you can put a hole in them. This is my third pair of Joslins.
Great shoes probably not going to skate anything else
My favorite skate shoes. I have a wide foot and they fit nice.
I have been recovering from a board getting shot into my achilles tendon. With the amount of padding these shoes have, im able to skate without feeling any pain in my foot. It's almost as if i never got hurt. Good skate shoe/therapy shoe
Comfort is insane, broke them in after 2 days. Love this shoe !
Great shoes for skateboarding. Both my 6 year old and husband own a pair. Cushion on the top and great soles is key.
I like jumping down stuff and im always looking for aomething that can absorb the impact. Ive skated these shoes for 7 months now continually skating and jumping down stuff. Holes didnt form until 5 months in and 7 months in they finally feel like they hurt my feet just a little. Im highly impressed and plan on buying another pair of these!
wore a hole through the toecap in less than a week, the soles are really good and the shoes look sick but they aren't nearly as durable as people say. also, the insoles are not the best either, i cant imagine anyone jumping down anything bigger than an 8 set with the stock insoles
Very comfortable and confident. In the beginning, the first three or four days, they seem to be a kind of rigid to your toes, but then it's a great match with you. Buy your Size! You don't need to buy a number below - it suits very well!
Very comfortable and true to size. Excellent customer service with fast shipping.
These lasted me 3 months of hard skating before a hole started to form. I decided to shoe goo them and they've held up ever since then. We are going on 6 months now. The grip is just starting to wear down.
Bought myself and my son a pair, both loving the comfort and durability. Always liked Etnies but the customer service with my order of my sons in a separate order was hands down the best customer service I've experienced, great choice and great company.
Awesome shoes as always. My son said they took some breaking in but now he likes them. And they’re rugged which is what he needs with how hard he is on his shoes.
I've had these shoes for over a year now, worn them the whole time and skated a bunch of times in them. The only parts that are significantly worn out are the inside Achilles and the top of the toes. But even with that these shoes are still more comfortable than any pair I've felt since. Greatest shoes ever!!
These shoes deserve more than 5 stars in my opinion. This is the best shoe I’ve ever skated, hands down. From lace protection, like the old school shoes, to the comfort upon landing. These are the best shoe you can ever skate in.
Theses shoes are awesome love the gum soles
Perfect fits well comfi and love them
Colorway on these are 🔥 🔥!!! Been skating since 1998 and have owned and skated in most every brand of shoes in our industry. Joslins are up there with some of the best.
I’ve been skating etnies for the past 5 years,I have countless pairs of maranas and I’ve had 4 pairs of joslins so far. These are the best shoes out, they hold up and protect your feet while still having board feel!
Dopest skate shoes to date.
These shoes are so comfy and shred ready right out the box!!! I need a cup sole cause I had an implant put on my foot! I tried over 10 pairs of shoes and the Joslin's are the best skate shoe I've had on and off the board!!! 🤜🏻🤛🏻🤘🏻
All around awesome shoe🤙
Amazing quality. My foot has a new home!
The shows look great, fit is perfect, and very comfortable to wear. The traction is top notch.
Comfort 10 looks 10 functionality 10 100%good
Best pair of skate shoes I've ever put on my feet. I even bought a second pair just to wear when I'm not skating. Comfortable and protective. Very good looking shoes.
Love the shoes I have 3 pair of the same ones just in different colors. Wish there were extra laces that came with them. They are intended for skateboarding
I've been skating since I was 2. Im 19 now turning 20 in May. And in all that time, I have never skated a more perfect shoe! I skate almost every day of every week and i get excited to skate this shoe. I get the same flick every time, the durability is incredible. I got my pair in the beginning of September and it's now almost the end of February and all that has happened in that time just recently was my shoe laces came apart. That's it. 6 months of skating it and no holes, no damage or anything. 100% Getting myself another pair! Well done Joslin!
Our son loves these shoes, this is his second pair, they barely held up after a month of very limited use due to winter.... never has he had a skate shoe where the stitching gave out on the laces. Usually his skate shoes last 3-4 months of rigorous abuse, these have lasted just past the thirty day return policy. Disappointed. In this particular pair, we think it was a manufacturing defect.
Solid shoes. Comfortable and durable!
Good shoes, looking really nice. Mostly, super glad about the sole which doesn't have the ethnies logo that often breaks.
In all seriousness.. these shoes are the most comfortable shoes I’ve owned in my 25 years on earth. Etnies is killing it this year! Keep on keeping on! Definitely will and all ready have ordered another pair!
Awesome shoes - they are Marana’s on roids!! (I thought the Marana was perfect!!) The whole order and international shipping process was super easy and quick.
Best all rounder!! Excellent impact protection from jumping down stuff, and primos feels like nothing anymore. The Michillen sole is very durable and only takes 1 session to fully break in. I’ve skated it for 3 months and had trouble putting a hole through the sole. No comprise on board feel whatsoever, once broken in I can feel everything that’s happening under my feet. It’s also very grippy and gives me tons of confidence. The flick on this shoe is so good it’s adicting. And once the swede wears through, the tough rubber toe cap takes 2-3 extra weeks to wear through. Very hard to put a hole in these shoes. On top of it all this shoe is amazingly comfortable, it feels like classic skate shoes - walking on a cloud. The ankle feels like it’s surrounded by pillows. Over all: great impact and foot protection, extremely comfortable, extremely durable, fantastic board feel, addicting flick. The perfect shoe if you love skating every single day. 1 downside is the laces still rip - but you can hide them in the hidden loops. Support the homie and skate this beast of a shoe 🍑👌👌
After 6 months of skating they have lasted better than any other skate shoe I’ve had. Perfect for skating in colder weather. They are very thick and protect well. May make your feet sweat a good bit in the summer.
pretty good overall, except that the stitching on the tongue and lace loop area started ripping after one day, exposing the foam padding in the shoe. i didn't even skate in them yet. and the midsole/ outsole looked like it was squished by something heavy near the heel. i know it wasn't me as i only weigh 150 pounds. all of my problems were with the right shoe. am going to send in an email to see if i can get a-replacement pair that does not have so many issues.
Just a minor heads up--in Brown/Gum, they are slightly darker than pictured. Perfectly OK. They look and feel good. If you live in SoCal, do not pay for expedited shipping. They got here in 3 days with regular shipping. Sorry for spilling the beans Etnies ;-).
There awesome, the shoelaces never rip and the shoe has a lot of grip
Skates amazing, side blows out really fast. If you are looking for durabillity I would recommend a Marana over the joslin.
Dope on dope on dope and comfortable
5 star shoe. just runs a little a half size smaller than what i usually get. i got a 10 1/2 and should have went with an 11. other than that no complaints
These are some amazing shoes! Great work Etnies!! Built for impact and super durable! High recommend!! Just bought my second pair of these!
Great high quality shoes, comfortable, and stylish.
Best skate shoe I've ever had!
Best all around shoe from standing on your feet all day to just landing on your feet all day. In the last three years I have went through many of models/brands even have changed sizes to maximize comfort and control. These are it
very Nice and Comfortable
Comfortable . sharp looking shoe. So nice got them twice but could your boy get some stickers? i mean i spent a 160 bones .
Got these from my local shop. Hands down one of the greatest skate shoes of all time. These are even better than the Joslin Maranas because they have way better ankle support and a tongue that actually stays in place. Hidden toecap and unique logo make for a way better looking shoe but should have kept them fully black with the darker gum and contrasting Michelin logo and bottom grip. Also, still don't know why the hidden lace loops don't go all the way up to the top eyelet because that's where I do my heelflips. Could be wider at the base but overall these have a way better fit. I'm not 16 years old anymore so if I want to keep acting like I'm Chris Joslin I need a shoe that can make me at least be slightly less scared to attempt to. Coincidentally I seem to have found that shoe.
they fit like a glove, comfortable and clean af
Perfect shape. great.
Exactly what I needed. Incredible durability. Phenomenal outsole, genius idea to partner with Michellin. They are the best shoes I've ever skated durable, effective and comfortable. Chris Joslin knows the way. 10/10
Shoe very comfortable, the foot is well maintained. After a few sessions no traces of wear, very resistant. Size slightly small, think to take a half size above.
Best shoes ive ever skated with!!
This is my 3rd pair with the michelin soles. They are the most durable and comfortable shoe ive ever skated. Etnies have always been my favorite skate shoe since the mid 90s.
Wow! Just wow! I’ve rode Etnies my whole life but I have never skated anything like it! The flick is amazing for flip tricks, it’s already broken in and it’s so comfortable! I would recommend these to anyone any day!
Great shoes! Just as pictured and expected!
these show fit nice and look great. the bottom has some tight grip too.
Solid,comfortable and great grip.
Best shoe out there
Comfortable shoes and great quality always
Hyped to skate these and they hold up so good! Thanks Etnies
I have always been a fan of the Marana and this is the update I've long waited for. comfortable, durable and great to skate
These are extremely comfortable and makes the foot feel safe and secure. Awesome grip, still enough board feel so it doesn't put you off having the thicker sole. Highly recommend!!
