The Etnies Barge LS skate shoe is a good combination of an excellent skate shoe and a classy street sneaker.
Various details such as the Vulcanized sole, the slim cut, special ventilation as well as extra padded areas in the inner shoe, will give your feet a lot of comfort, on the skateboard and cruising down the city.
One of the few big skate brands to have its roots in Europe, etnies have been making skateboard specific shoes and apparel since 1989. With a huge heart for the environment, they set up the "Buy a shoe, plant a tree initiative" in 2011 and have successfully planted over 1 million trees. Now that's what we call dedication to the cause.
