I had a bad heel slam about a month ago. I was wearing the other guys shoes with the "waffle" sole, no protection what so ever, even the "pro" models. As soon as I could get up and walk again, I looked up Etnies to see what they had. I ride Bmx, street mostly, so most people know what comes with that territory, everything I found said the RVM was the one. So I ordered them, good price too! I would recommend these to anyone who rides Bmx. The support is amazing and the comfort is great too! Wish you guys had an all Black model with the Gum sole. I hope these don't get discontinued, I will definitely buy another pair. Thanks Etnies! Oh yeah, there is a huge market in Bmx for you guys, should definitely think about making some Bmx specific shoes. Thanks again!!
Drawing inspiration from etnies skate heritage, the RVM features the classic etnies Rap styling on a mid-top silhouette with a vulcanized outsole. The RVM also boasts an STI Foam Lite Level 2 footbed for added comfort and protection, a triple-stitched toe cap and a padded tongue and collar. Sound comfortable? Well there’s more. The RVM even includes System G2 inserted into the heel for more cushioning protection.
- Die Cut EVA Insole
- Padded Tongue and Collar
- Mid Top construction
- Vulcanized Construction
- Herringbone Outsole For Traction
I don’t skate anymore, but I always buy skate shoes to wear to work because they’re the only shoes that don’t kill my feet after a long shift. These shoes are perfect right out of the box, no break in time. I wore them to work and my feet were comfy and happy the entire time. Etnies, if you’re listening, make more color ways so I can get a pair in every style
I love these shoes. I bought them for downhill Mtb and dirt jumping. The soles are super sticky. They are very comfortable and provide a lot of protection and support. Only thing I didn't like about them was the shoe strings but that's really it. I have been abusing them by building jumps and riding for a few hours about 4 to 5 times a week. A super solid shoe!
Klassieker had ze een tijd terug al en ik wilde deze opnieuw en zit wederom heel comfortabel ik hou van de looks maar zou wel graag meer kleuren zien.
I love these shoes. I bought just about every color way when they came out and still have them. Some are worn so was happy when a remake was available. They are very comfortable and really cool. Please let me know if more colors become available so I can buy a pair. Respectfully
Always loved these shoes. Been hard to find. Glad I found them on the website. Only wish they had them in more colors. I hope Etnies reads these reviews. Would love to see them in different colors and materials
...in love! More colours would be great!!!
Best shoes ever, more colours would be great!!!
This is the fourth pair of RVMs I have bought because not only do they look awesome but they are so comfortable
Awesome shoes, 5th or 6th pair of RVM I've had. Love the mid fit. Excellent work guys.
Dont evet stop making rvm's, they are my favorite shoes in the history of good comfy shoes.. You have a customer for life because of them.
These look great, but not so comfy. I've got wide feet, the toe box on these is thin to begin with, but the area where all the stitching comes together, on either side of the foot right there at the last lace loop-hole - that stitching digs into both sides of my feet. Had to stretch these out manually. Normal break-in / everyday wear would not have gotten these to a tolerable width at the beginning of the toe box. If you've got narrow feet, these will probably be perfect. Look great and have tons of padding in the sole. The grip fine and skate well. But if you've got wide feet, I'd pass, unless you dig the style and are willing to take time to stretch em out.
Lovely looking well made but .came up really tight on the sides shoes are very narrow . Like theses high top shoes but the new design makes them stiff . The olderstyle had a loop at the toe area giving it more flexabilitty but now that it's in one piece it's made it narrow bring back the older style shoe .
these shoes are very nice, took maybe a week to break in but they feel great now and fit exact to size!!
If you’re looking for a wider shoe, these are the ones for you. Well made, stylish and value for money. I for one hope RVM’s will always be available to buy.
I've had them in blue and white, and I'm wearing these ones in black for half a year now. Most amazing shoes I've ever worn! The level of comfort, both walking and skating is absolutely amazing! I never thought I could actually love a pair of shoes so much! Etnies for life!
Best Etnies shoe by far! Insanely comfortable and stylish as well. Etnies, please bring back the other colors!
I love the RVM series, I have been with the series since the "RVM Joe Gavin" edition, my favorite all day shoes and skate shoes too from Etnies, one of the all around best they ever made. I hope they will continue the series and make more models or bring back the old ones because I can't find the old models anymore. They are very comfortable and not too heavy, also the ankles stays in place when laced properly, also the rubber soles are very good. I think the RVM series is the best mid-height shoes you will find out there.
The most comfortable shoes I ever wear!!! :)
Really comfortable padding, and great support... a true classic.
...made in China, but solid as rock.
80's HxC skaters need the extra cushion these shoes got. Do not discontinue this model!
Shoes like back in those days. Super comfy. I do own two pairs of Scout's, too and those appear to be lowcost footwear compared to the RVM
Brilliant hard wearing trainer which is not too 'loud'. Good wide fit and true to size.
The shoes are super good I wish they had the low top ones though
