Fader 1.5 is a bit narrow in the toe area. Not like my favorite entnies with the ultra-suade that look similar. Thought I was buying my favorite ones but these are little different. Also I miss the young elastic from the golden days. Please bring back the toung elastic.
The etnies Fader 1.5 is the faux-vulc cupsole version of the Fader. It features the trademark etnies Arrow logo integrated into the heel area, as well as a 400 NBS rubber outsole with an internal EVA midsole, an STI Foam Lite Level 1 footbed and padded tongue and collar for additional protection and comfort.
- Padded tongue and collar

Very stylish sneakers, easy to clean and fits like other Etnies. Not as "fluffy"/comfortable as the kingpin, but wearable for long hours
Not as comfortable as some of the other etnies shoes (ie, metal mulisha family etc) but for 30 odd quid they definitely deserve a 3 star rating and a 2 thumbs up for value. Etnies is the best shoe Co out there for skate/bmx footwear.
There brilliant and really comfortable
I have been wearing Etnies for over 10 years. The fit has always been consistent regardless of shoe style, until I purchased these. As others have stated there is something wrong with the way these are made. The area where the base of the tongue meets the rest of the shoe is extremely tight/narrow. As a result the inside of the shoe pinches against the top and sides of my foot creating raw spots after a few hours of wear. This rubbing is still occurring after two months of break in. I have other pairs of faders (not 1.5) this same size that fit perfectly.
ok product for the price. soft insole but starting to tear away material. sides also starting to tear away material after only a little over a month of wearing them.
Comfort would be 5 stars if they wouldn't be too narrow in the front. If you got wide feet, try them in store first.
Just awesome! So comfortable, great value and great web page shipped so quick!
I love these shoes! Super comfortable and a great value.
Aint the type to leave feedback for things but felt with these I had to. Been supporting the E's for years now and and after my grey/red/white faders finally died (and not being able to source their replacements anywhere on the planet), decided to give these a try. They look rude!! honestly, a really dope set of sneaks... alas it ends there. Never had any footwear that's such a small fit... i mean ever! Even after a week of stretching the badboys my foot's being crushed and toes all bunched up like by the hyper-narrow build. Dont feel like they've got the give that the other faders had neither. Shame, gold stars for rad... a massive boooooooo for wearing
