    I bought and returned a (figurative) ton of different skate shoes to replace a pair that were irretrievably dog pooped (a pair of etnies fader vulc's). i tried different etnies, lakai, dekline, etc. and I found the widths to be too tight before finally getting a these. Why not just start there? I wasn't a fan of the how they looked now vs what I bought previously (and dog poop ruined) but I think, in hindsight, that I was just annoyed that they didn't look exactly the same.

    so let that be a lesson to all companies everywhere, do something that I like and then never innovate or change because I am afraid of change.

    My feet love Etnies. I am a diehard Vans fan and for the past 40 years have purchased vans almost exclusively. However, the last few pairs that I bought did not last but a few months then water started leaking through holes in the bottom. I will say that as a commercial fisherman, I am on my feet all day and definitely put shoes through the test. When the Etnies arrived, I noticed that they were heavier and the rubber on the bottom stiffer than my vans. Also, the padding inside and the shoe tongue was better padded. I hope they last!

    I love Etnies! Now that the prices are going up because they're popular, it's great when I can get them at a bargain. These were on sale and I jumped at the purchase. They are a bit snug (moreso than my last two pairs), but not uncomfortable. I love the classic look and feel. I've had a few older people ask if they are Converse because they sort of resemble Chuck Taylors. But, I think they're a lot better looking than Chucks. I love the colors (not too crazy). I'll be looking to buy another pair real soon, I'm sure.

    Being a former vans wearer exclusivly these shoes are Awesome. They have way more rubber just like vans used to. They are made with quality and the price was way less then I am used to paying for shoes. See ya later vans and your new lame generic chuck taylor look and hello awesome quality Etnies

    for twenty bucks I can't complain, but know that you're getting what you pay for, the materials are sparce.
    I have had these for about 6 months and no problems yet, they don't seem to be wearing out faster/slower than my other more expensive shoes.

    I love these shoes they have a great look and the best part is the insoles. These are the most comfortable shoes I ever bought and I cant stop wearing them. I never owned a pair of etnies but very happy with these will have to get another pair soon.

    My husband likes these shoes. Comfort and style are good, they are just a Lighter duty skate shoe. He usually wears the charter style. This style fit slightly large, but not large enough to be an issue. Bought size 10 and feels like a size 10.25.

    The shoes are just what they were advertised to be. Good fit and they appear to be of decent quality. I'm sad to see that they are made in China but there are almost no American made shoes anymore so I'm not surprised. Here's hoping they hold up.
