Good old school skate shoes. Not as much padding as they used to have but comfy and grippy. 👍 I’d recommend

Just brilliant, I wear etnies all day everyday no matter what I am doing and this pair is excellent for winter weather and of course the comfiest shoes you will ever wear.

Personally my favorite shoe to skate in right now. It's tough, durable, has a long lifespan, flexible and light. The pattern on the bottom of the soles gives great board feel and the rubberized layer around the toe box gets along great with your griptape. The you have the pad on top of the toe box(no more hole where your toes are just shoe-goo the pad back on and your good to go!) and the cushioned tongue in classic ernie's fashion. This shoe is *chef's kiss* brilliant!!!

I have been skating these kicks for a couple years now. As soon as I made the switch, the ankle pain and hot pockets I had been experiencing significantly decreased. These shoes are my go to and you can't ask for a better price point. They continue to push these quality bad boys out for around $37, you can't beat that. But don't take my word for it, I am fine with keeping what I believe is a depleting inventory for myself.

Great, mostly accurate replicas. I just tossed my old Czars a few days ago, when I found I could order these, so it's very easy for me to compare these to the originals. I REALLY wish they'd kept the red Etnies logo on the heel. If I could rate them 4.5 stars for that style error, instead of 5, I would. I'm glad they ditched the white marshmallow molding on the sides, above the soles, though, as that wore out long the shoes themselves on the original Czars. These are a little roomier. The old Czars were made during the height of puff skate shoes, in the early 00s, and the line between snug and claustrophobic with puff sneakers was always very thin. These are a modern sneaker build with a puffy tongue. I am very pleased to have one of my all time favorite sneakers returned to me. They look fantastic, and fit well. Well done, Etnies.

Love these shoes, I’ve had a pair before, good board feel, durability and style. I have a white, yellow and blue pair which has some synthetic leather material which is nice, my previous pair where navy blue and grey, which had suede all over

My daughter and I fought over whom was going to get this pair. Very stylish and functional. She wears them every day and and has gotten so my compliments on them. They look like a hiking boot but not. Her classmates want to know where they can get a pair and very worth the price

This shoe is more comfy and better constructed than almost everything out right now, while still being very flexible and light. I just wish they had better lace protection for the bottom 2 eye holes.

Wore them through high school and they were the best pair of shoes I ever owned. I know this is probably inevitable, but I'd love it if they didn't get D/C'd again.

I was so excited when I saw that they brought this shoe back. I owned a pair back in the day and they were my favorite Etnies ever! I think I may order another pair just in case they get discontinued again!

Too much padding. I had no board feel, and it felt really heavy!

MPM 9/18/18 Houston, TX

I'm not a fan of the minor changes they made to this re-release, such as the top eyelet that used to be more of a lace hook, and how the sole used to have an exposed PU midsole, instead now using the same shared sole as the Lo Cut and Senix when the originals had all different soles. Either way it's my only chance to get these again so I'm still buying.
