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.
Etnies was the company that put skate shoes on the market. Created by skateboarders for skateboarder, the company was built from the streets and taken to the next level through pure entrepreneurial drive. Their team roster reads like a whos-who of skateboard legends. 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.
