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!!
The Joslin Pro was built to provide Chris with a shoe that is as unstoppable as he is.

Down to every tiny detail, the Joslin Pro is everything he wanted in his first pro skate shoe, a clean-cut style that’s affordable, tough, long lasting. “From the inside out, this shoe LASTS and that’s what I love!” – Chris Joslin

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!!
