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.
Chris Joslin is a legend in the making. Etnies is proud to introduce his first pro model shoe, The Joslin! These days in skateboarding, not everyone gets a pro shoe anymore. Etnies is excited to immortalize his legacy. And this is only the beginning…

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!!
