It's a bit tighter in the toe than the Fader, especially toward the outside which might be better for some but wasn't for me. It's not so bad that they're unwearable or even uncomfortable just not quite as comfortable as what I usually get (which was out of stock in my size). Still a great shoe, no defects and great material quality. Personally I'd go for the Fader though...
Borrowing a little design inspiration from the etnies Fader, the Kingpin is a classic puffy tongue skateboard shoe

I love love love my etnies! They are my favorite brand of skate show!!
Once broken in, very comfortable to wear on a daily basis.
Very comfortable, great work shoe.
Love etnies trainers! They are my favourite! ☺☺
Bought for my son, had them before . Seemed less padded this time. Last pair wore well, hoping these do too
Very clean shoe! Little tight but that’s how they all are, just have to break them in! If you guys don’t like the fat tongue I wouldn’t get them because they are skate shoes! Traditionally that’s how Etnies we’re when I use to be able to go an buy them from PacSun! All an all a great show! So comfortable and fun to wear !
Love Etnies! The Kingpin shoe is perfect.
I use these for work shoes. I own a framing business and a solid skateboard shoe is the only thing that keeps me safe walking on 2 inch ceiling joists 2 stories in the air. The Kingpin is one of the most durable shoes I've found lately. The extra stitching around the shoe lasts so well that I often wear the sole out before it comes loose from the top. Well done, Etnies
We have been buying etnies products for a while. I think they are great . This Kingpin does not disappoint iether. Looking forward to next purchase. Thanks. I started buying off etnies because they ship to Hungary very fast and cheap.
super comfy. have been looking for a pair of navy skate shoes and finally found them. great price too.
I searched for these shoes for a long time because the Etnies dealers are not very many in my region. The shoes are very comfortable and the colour is very nice. The product received on time without damage. Great shoes!!!! Thanks. The website is very serious.
Love these shoes. Hope they don't ever discontinue these
As nice as usual.
best shoe ever
Great shoes. Bf loves them
Simply the BEST
I LOVE etnies! Best shoes I've ever had! I have fat feet so it's hard to find comfortable shoes ... etnies are very very comfortable! Only shoes I ever buy anymore! I recommend these shoes to everyone!
Great shoes, love the look of the toe. Etnies is my go to brand, especially since it is so hard to find them in size 15!
Great shoe ..love the solid soles
I love Etnies and I wear it since about 10 years, mostly black Fader and red Woozy, always the same size: 42,5. I still wear most of them. Best brand to me, ever. However... the quality of this Kingpin is perfect, but it is the first time that a 42,5 is barely too small for me. (I keep wearing 42 and 42,5 in other brands, and my weight did not change) Please take care of this, as Etnies needs to stay coherent. I'm expecting two pairs with the same size to have exactly the same size. Unless I cant trust the sizes anymore when I buy online. 3mm less or 3mm more make a big difference for the factory, but also for our feet. Pushed by the inside, the shape of the shoes is slowly changing. But if it wasn't about the size, these shoes would be absolutely perfect. Great materials, awesome resistance, outstanding colors (especially the brown rubber). And your fast delivery is a must. Maybe - for size change - you could set up a "free return" policy in the future, just like a famous clothing company (name begins with L) already does. I will buy Etnies again in the future of course, I just hope the usual 42,5 won't be a very short 42.
These are great, exactly what I was looking for.
Just received these today, they are the most comfortable shoes I think I've ever had. Having huge feet it's INCREDIBLY hard to find shoes that aren't too narrow without going a size up and tripping over the extra length. if these shoes last I'll be buying them as long as they make them, needless to say I'm more than satisfied.
The most comfortable shoes on the planet.
It's a nice all Black shoe. Comfortable as always and is nice and warm in the winter.
I'm crazy bout them.Super comfortable and awesome looking.Not to mention the insanely fast delivery ! Don't stop making this model Etnies and keep on being awesome as always ! cheers
best shoes i ever had
Love my Kingpins. First Etnies I bought and feel like I've struck gold.
I ordered them 2 days ago and I literally just got them(Dark Brown version). They look and feel awesome ! I'm totally happy with my purchase, not to mention the surprisingly quick and on spot order/delivery system.Cheers to you Etnies Europe !
Delivery service 5 stars! The shoes are very comfortable, we loved it!
très bon service et qualité
An excellent pair of etnies, comfortable, snug fitting everything as described on the box. Perfect everyday footware.
Kingpin is a cool and reliable model. Nice shape hugging the foot. Thanks Etnies.
Nice shoe, well built, could use a little more cushion in the sole, but better than most shoes that aren't running shoes.
That full herringbone gum sole just never quits, and the grip is amazing. I wish more shoes had this type of gum sole. If an all-black mid version of Kingpin existed, I'd certainly be tempted to buy it.
so comfy, like walking on air. really cool, smart.
I love ETNIES shoes! They are the most comfortable and best made shoes I have ever worn!!! I've been wearing etnies for 4 years now and will never buy anything else!
Classic style, elegant, great shoes, please don't stop making kingpins.
The shoes are very comfortable and I really like their style. Also, they arrived only a few days after I made the order. All in all, I'm quite pleased with the product and the company.
Great product. My last etnies lasted me for 8 years in alaska. just ordered this one and i love the all black look. very comfy. Love Love Love these
Great buy. Love the shoes. Thank you
Comfortable for a daily use Resistant for skating and other means of shoes destruction Sober and fits all styles Definitively the good choice
Nice looking, all black! Fits perfectly. The delivery was super-fast and free, that's a plus!
Superb, fits my feet wonderfully, please don't stop making these I want to wear them forever now. A lot of skate shoes are too tight for my feet but these are lovely and comfortably with a great fit.
Nice strong shoe. Comfy and like the all black look! Good stuff.
My Hubby loves them. He has worn your shoes for over 15 years. He had one pair last for about 10 years! They are worth every penny spent. Excellent product!
simplemente , los mejores que he usado para patinar !!
simple yet cool design, saved my feet from severe injuries a few times - best shoe next to ŠS accel ...
Best Shoes ever
Very nice shoes, but above all very comfortable
Subtle skate shoe, very comfortable - wore them to work for years, beats the flimsy little leather shoes everyone else is wearing in the office.
I remember this shoe from years ago and i just dropped 100 bucks on the camo 32s but wish i would have jumped on these! never knew they brought em back! best shoe I've ever owned and they have madd style.
These shoes are very simple but incredible cool and comfortable. You could use them as elegant shoes because of the color (simply black) using in combination with a black jacket. I am really pride of my new shoes :)
i have been bying etnies kingpins for years very hard wearing and good if you have flat feet would highly recamend
