The Cyprus SWC Michelin shoes are part of Etnies' weather-adaptable Winterized collection, which is equipped with technology to combat the elements of any environment. Using a special rubber formula from Michelin, the sole gives you traction on wet and frozen ground. 3M™ Thinsulate™ and Scotchguard™ technology give the shoe water repelling properties and quick drying insulation, keeping your feet warm and dry. STI Evolution® foam provides comfortable cushioning and a molded TPU heel clip keeps your foot stable and secure. A lyrica spandex inner sock liner and a gusseted tongue keep the shoe snug on your foot, making it quick and responsive even in crappy conditions.
Cupsole - Cupsoles are durable, well-cushioned and provide the best impact protection against hard landings. The sole consists of a single rubber layer, reinforced with glue then stitched to the upper. Cupsoles generally last longer than vulcanized soles, but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.
3M™ Scotchguard™ Weather Proofing - A water repellent coating to keep your feet dry.
3M™ Thinsulate™ Lining - Insulation that dries quick for maximum heat retention.
Gusset Tongue - Elastic gussets connect the tongue and the midsole, giving you a snug fit and keeping your tongue in place.
Lycra Spandex Inner Sock - Provides a superior fit.
Michelin Outsole Technology - Using a custom formula from Michelin tire manufacturer, this outsole lasts three times longer than a standard outsole without sacrificing grip or boardfeel.
STI Evolution™ Foam - STI Evolution™ Foam replaces EVA, PU, and heavy rubber with a durable, impact resistant, and ultra lightweight cushioning foam that can be used as a single solution for the midsole and outsole of skate shoes.
Molded TPU Heel Clip - Offers stability and support.
