The Kingpin truly is the king of casual footwear. They are comfy, look great and I love the relatively plain design. My second pair but my first lasted a good few years. I hope Etnies never stop making them.

I like these a lot! was fan of the puffy tongue for awhile and Etnies is the only Skate-Shoe i can wear since i got hurt and pinched multiple nerves in my back. Due to the injury most shoes feel horrible on my feet but I still Skate and Snow Board too, 32 and Etnies are the only brand that works! the Kingpin remind me of my Freights so I'm rocking these now. Please Etnies never stop making these "Puffy Tongue" style shoes!! Its the only pair of shoes I can wear for skateboarding these days that don't annoy my feet! All day comfort even with nerve injuries and great performance on the board too!! Thanks!!

It's a bit tighter in the toe than the Fader, especially toward the outside which might be better for some but wasn't for me. It's not so bad that they're unwearable or even uncomfortable just not quite as comfortable as what I usually get (which was out of stock in my size). Still a great shoe, no defects and great material quality. Personally I'd go for the Fader though...

Patricia Ski 12/3/17 Fort Myers

Very clean shoe! Little tight but that’s how they all are, just have to break them in! If you guys don’t like the fat tongue I wouldn’t get them because they are skate shoes! Traditionally that’s how Etnies we’re when I use to be able to go an buy them from PacSun! All an all a great show! So comfortable and fun to wear !

Scotty 11/17/17 Missouri

I use these for work shoes. I own a framing business and a solid skateboard shoe is the only thing that keeps me safe walking on 2 inch ceiling joists 2 stories in the air. The Kingpin is one of the most durable shoes I've found lately. The extra stitching around the shoe lasts so well that I often wear the sole out before it comes loose from the top. Well done, Etnies

We have been buying etnies products for a while. I think they are great . This Kingpin does not disappoint iether. Looking forward to next purchase. Thanks. I started buying off etnies because they ship to Hungary very fast and cheap.

I searched for these shoes for a long time because the Etnies dealers are not very many in my region. The shoes are very comfortable and the colour is very nice. The product received on time without damage. Great shoes!!!! Thanks. The website is very serious.

Nick Belgium 3/14/17 Brussels

I love Etnies and I wear it since about 10 years, mostly black Fader and red Woozy, always the same size: 42,5. I still wear most of them. Best brand to me, ever. However... the quality of this Kingpin is perfect, but it is the first time that a 42,5 is barely too small for me. (I keep wearing 42 and 42,5 in other brands, and my weight did not change) Please take care of this, as Etnies needs to stay coherent. I'm expecting two pairs with the same size to have exactly the same size. Unless I cant trust the sizes anymore when I buy online. 3mm less or 3mm more make a big difference for the factory, but also for our feet. Pushed by the inside, the shape of the shoes is slowly changing. But if it wasn't about the size, these shoes would be absolutely perfect. Great materials, awesome resistance, outstanding colors (especially the brown rubber). And your fast delivery is a must. Maybe - for size change - you could set up a "free return" policy in the future, just like a famous clothing company (name begins with L) already does. I will buy Etnies again in the future of course, I just hope the usual 42,5 won't be a very short 42.

JustSomeGuy 2/24/17 Arizona

Just received these today, they are the most comfortable shoes I think I've ever had. Having huge feet it's INCREDIBLY hard to find shoes that aren't too narrow without going a size up and tripping over the extra length. if these shoes last I'll be buying them as long as they make them, needless to say I'm more than satisfied.

Nice shoe, well built, could use a little more cushion in the sole, but better than most shoes that aren't running shoes.

TractionBuddy 9/22/16 UK

That full herringbone gum sole just never quits, and the grip is amazing. I wish more shoes had this type of gum sole. If an all-black mid version of Kingpin existed, I'd certainly be tempted to buy it.

These shoes are very simple but incredible cool and comfortable. You could use them as elegant shoes because of the color (simply black) using in combination with a black jacket. I am really pride of my new shoes :)
