Pro: Great board feel, awesome grip, really comfortable, and Vegan! Con: Sole started separating from the sides immediately, sole started dematerializing quickly I love Etnies and how progressive they are for vegan skaters. I’m always on the look out for a quality vegan skate shoe. These shoes are good for casual walking, but not skating. That’s ok, I guess. I just hate having to always buy suede shoes. Love you guys!
The Langston is a minimal slip-on with a low profile and a fully deconstructed upper. This slim design features a die cut EVA insole built on a vulcanized outsole with raised foxing. The egg crate midsole offers added cushion while the elastic goring provides easy slip-on and off access. The upper features a one-piece toe vamp overlay with a low toe box, keeping the vamp closer to your foot.

My third day skating these there was already a hole, the outer facing seam rips under pressure easily. But they are very comfortable and molded to my feet very quickly.
