This shoe was carefully crafted, piece by piece, to endure professional skateboarding. Its fused-on injected rubber toe cap makes it super hard to wear through, the lightweight and impact-resistant STI Evolution™ Foam midsole doesn't pack out, enhancing the cushioning of the Polyurethane footbed and the non-slip grip outsole's thick herringbone tread with deep grooves just doesn't wear down. Durable is an understatement. The Marana was born to skate and hold its own. Just like Ryan.
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.
