A great vegan skate shoe that feels good, looks good and skates amazing. I was glad to hear about these shoes because of how hard it is to find a good vegan skate shoe that isn't canvas or really expensive.

Great gift for my boyfriend. Been looking for quality vegan, cruelty free shoes that aren’t simply ugly, or 100 dollars. These did the trick perfectly!

Worth it, especially for the price. I like the way high tops look and feel, but it’s hard to find a good pair that isn’t too expensive. This is exactly what I was looking for. The vegan vamp holds up well, and the hidden toe cap helps a lot. Unlike suede, which expands when your feet gets wet (makes your shoe feel soggy) this shoe feels fine. The board feel was not the best, but better than any cup sole I’ve ever skated. The Ollie area has seen the most wear so far, but not too bad. And the high top gives me good support, once I start skating these I don’t even remember I’m wearing high tops. Overall a great shoe, worth the buy.

Good shoes. Vegan at no cost of durability. Already on my second pair.

Amazing shoe, this will be my second pair. Reaaally durable, with a small amount of shoe goo I was able to push these through three months of daily skating and flip tricks before blowing a hole through the bottoms. With the canvas, your feet can breathe while keeping that sturdy faux suede for flicks. Really comfortable, but the insole sucks pretty bad. Replaced it with a different shoe brand. These have to be the best vegan shoes on the market(couldn't try s*****t cause they don't have my size). Etnies, I'd love to see more styles with this material!! maybe a michelin or joslin!!!!?

Great shoes! Very comfortable and the vegan material holds up really well. Durable and last through all sorts of weather. Canvas wore down a bit, but overall is still pretty good. Only reason I can't give it 5 stars is that there isn't a lot of support and the impact control is pretty bad. Would definitely buy again, though!

I’m currently on my third pair of these (although I chose not to skate in the ones with all the cute animals) and I could could only ask for one thing, a little bit of arch support. I’m a pretty tall guy and my feet and knees can get a little tender if my arches aren’t supported. Otherwise it feels great to be able to look down at a pair of stylish, cruelty free skate shoes. Thanks! Y’all rip!

Laura 5/2/18 Pennsylvania

I’ve tried a lot of vegan skate shoes. They don’t hold up. But these! These are the best shoes I’ve ever skated, vegan or not! They’re super comfy and soft and still have a nice clean look to them. They get a lot of compliments! I have an issue wearing out the bottom of my shoes but these are holding up well for me. I will probably only be buying this shoe from now on 💚 I would love to see the colorway with all of the animals come back 💚

I purchased and returned two sizes of this shoe a couple months apart. I really like this shoe, but it seems like these shoes are better suited for those with flat feet...maybe I have high arches. The width and length were good, but my feet were always vertically restricted.

I got the pyramid country collab of these and they are awesome. They take a couple sessions to break in. So glad there is a great vegan hightop!

furiousmonad 4/6/18 New York, NY

These shoes have a nice clean look and I appreciate the vegan materials used. The quality overall was very good, with clean stitching and nice, understated details. These are the highest cut skate shoes I've ever worn and as a result my feet feel very secure once I managed to get them on and the cupsole construction hugged the foot well. Unfortunately, the fit is on the narrow side and I think going up a half size is worth exploring if you have a wide forefoot like mine. I would have given this shoe 5 stars, but the insoles do not provide much cushioing and I had a pain in my hip after a few ollies down a three stair. Aftermarket insoles are generally too voluminous to fit inside the shoe, unless they are flat. So, I cannot recommend these to anyone on the heavier or older side (and I am a bit of both). Overall, a well-designed shoe that could be perfect with a bit more cushioning underfoot.

TheBigFunk 10/13/17 Mirfield, Yorkshire.

They look the part. I'm not a skater or a grunge head but I am a vegan and I want to look the part when going about my business. These hi tops fulfill the purpose, they have a quality look and feel to them. They are sturdy and comfortable to wear.

Dominic 9/17/17 Southall

Excellent shoes but a bit of a narrow cut. Always got a 8.5 size ( U.K. ) previously and never had a problem but these are a bit of a tighter fit. Great to see that Etnies have brought out another vegan shoe, one of the few manufacturers that do. Would love to see them bring back the RVM which I've bought before in both black and camo.

Josh 8/23/17 Stevens Point, WI, USA

This shoe is dope. It is comfortable, looks great, and feels great to wear. I am a fan of the High Tops and this shoe is well worth it. I don't skate however, I used to though. I love the style of the shoe and will continue to wear it. It may have a steep price tag, but after wearing these for a day you'll step back and say "Wow".

I'm not a vegan. I love this shoe. Great comfort, great skate shoe . Holding up great and provides great support. In a world void of good high tops to skate in- this is my favorite. And of course Etnies rules... Gonna pick up a pair of navy soon...

Jack 6/20/17 San Luis Obispo, CA

These shoes are sick. Comfortable as hell after a couple days and no rolled ankles! Of course my favorite thing about them is the message of compassion I can spread just by wearing them. (Just don't use sweatshops and I'll really love you, Etnies).

Lol that I'm the first US review. Immediately impressed with the construction of these shoes. Feel great inside and out. Hopefully you guys will keep these around for when I need a second pair!! This may be the only Vegan thing I accomplish in life, but it was totally worth it.

Best shoes I have ever skated! 10/10 for design and comfort, been skating hard in these shoes for. Couple weeks and they're barley worn down. Been searching for a long time for a synthetic vegan suede and you guys have pulled it off really well! I'll never buy another shoe again this one will be what I skate!........ GO VEGAN!

I just want to say how bloody amazing it is that you offered a vegan shoe. The second I saw the first post about them on Instagram I ordered them immediately. They arrived quickly and were on my feet straight away. A really good shoe with real quality. I have yet to skate them as I don't dare. I have loads of shoes and these are my go to shoes every time!
