The Etnies Marana Vulc shoe is a slimmer version of the brand's classic Marana model, with a flexible, vulcanized sole construction. The toecap is slightly perforated and features an extra abrasion-proof rubber layer. The Ollie-area of the Etnies Marana Vulc sneaker is reinforced and, just like the rest of the upper, it is made from very abrasion-proof suede. The heel-area is also reinforced and the laces run through practical metaleyelets. The STI Evolution Foam foot bed and the perfectly balanced padding offer an excellent wearing comfort, while the vulcanized sole construction and the outer sole provide a precise board feeling and a superb grip.
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.
