etnies, please bring back that synthetic Jameson high top suede! As skater of 20 years, vegan of 10, I really appreciate the vegan options. I really like this shoe. It fits well, looks good, it's slim and simple, but the canvas is no match for grip tape. So my shoes end up with a heap of shoe goo on all the flick areas and I end up re-goo-ing them after every third or fourth session. I'm on my fifth or sixth pair of these shoes. They are good, but they could be even better!!
Sheep is back and this time, herded by etnies. Originally created in 1996 as a fun animal friendly brand, Sheep shoes quickly created a cult following of talented skateboarders, artists, and vegans around the world. This Sheep capsule is 100% animal friendly, made with all synthetic materials and will sure have fans flocking to buy them.

Pros: VEGAN! light weight, comfortable, thin, exceptional feel/grip and board control. Cons: if your grip hits the canvas expect a hole unless you shoe goo or have a plan to protect or repair. If you are careful and can olie / kickflip / etc. with the sole not the canvas side they hold up very well! So nice i went for a 2nd pair after I skated through the first one.
These shoes are great but the canvas tears apart super quick while skating and I'm constantly having to shoe goo them. If you made a colorway with synth suede instead of the canvas they'd be perfect! The synth suede that was on my Jameson hi tops was super durable. If you arent planning on skating these shoes and just want to walk around in them then they'd be perfect. But if you are planning to skate in them make sure you have some shoe goo!!!
Frothing on my new sheeps
I love these shoes so much my first pair was stolen out of my car so I had to get a second pair they are my favorite
Bought them for my son a week before christmas. Arrived only two days after ordering. Very satisfied with how easy and fast everything was processed. Will definetely shop from this site again.
White ones are so awesome looking. Very comfy too!
Bought a pair of shoes just about 6/7 months ago, sole completely fell apart within the first week. Customer service team was awesome in getting them replaced. The replacement pair once again fell apart within a short period of time, this time just under a month. Shouldn’t have bought from Etnies again but since I’ve always repped the brand growing up in the local area, I thought I’d give these sheeps a go. Unfortunately they too are beginning to fall apart way too quickly. Not sure what is going on with the glue. No longer do I skate, been working a desk job for the past year, normal walking... unfortunately I’d not recommend these to others due to quality. Once again, customer service team was excellent!
Memories that are warm and fuzzy like a sheep. Also a rad slimmed out shoe to skate or cruise in. Went a half size up. Usually a 9 but had to go 9.5 for some reason.
