Can't comment on the shoe as yet as haven't worn them, but look good and have the usual Etnies quality. Ace that they come in half sizes. Also l accidently typed in the incorrect postcode on ordering and they got sent to the wrong address, totally my fault and were then returned to Etnies. A quick email to them and they were resent at no extra cost. Excellent customer service!
The RLS is a fully deconstructed lace-up style inspired off the original etnies RSS. Its silhouette is low profile as it sits on top of a vulcanized outsole. The Geo-Hex tread pattern provides optimum grip while an egg-crate construction in the midsole keeps the shoe light while adding extra cushioning under your foot.

- Low toe box, keeping the vamp closer to your foot

Awesome shoe hope they make more.
I got the previous generation of this shoe just a couple of months ago. The design looks to be very similar to these shoes. I really liked the fit. It's very comfortable but tight enough to prevent sliding. The laces and rubber are high quality, and stand up to a little bit of abuse while skateboarding. If you are getting these for skateboarding, consider getting a more expensive Etnies shoes if you can afford it, as the cloth will wear through before too long, especially if your ollies consistently rub above the rubber guard. Overall a very nice shoe, just not ideal for use as a skating shoe.
