On of the best all round skate shoe!
van Fernando, Blue Tomato Shop Amsterdam, Blue Tomato, 5 sep. 2022
I skate a size 8.38 and 149 trucks with 53 classic hard wheels.
New shoes always can feel a bit off, especially when you are used to one brand in particular and you make the switch. In this case it felt like an improvement, the shoes performed well even on the first day which is strange for me. I normally need a couple days to get used to it as my foot positioning can vary with different shoes.
The Etnies Marana felt very comfortable from the start, enough cushioning without feeling too big and the grip was really good as most of the shoe is suede material. The outsole is really living up to the hype and it is the thing that lasted the longest in the shoe. On that point, it is a very durable shoe, you can easily do 3-4 weeks of very intense skating and the shoe will hold up!
In conclusion, this product is a very good choice for any type of skater and It will last more than your average skate shoe thanks to its great outsole.
Looks wise, the Marana is a very good looking shoe, it may not seem in the pictures but once you put them on they do look great!
I would definitely buy again. It has for sure been my most durable and long lasting skate shoe.
