At Etnies, innovation never sleeps. The tech-heavy Helix combines design elements from Etnies' most popular models to meet the core needs of every skateboarder. STI Evolution Foam in the midsole delivers far superior impact protection than traditional EVA, allowing you to skate longer with less fatigue.
Breathable mesh at the vamp improves flexibility and lets air enter the top of the shoe for better ventilation. The tread pattern on the outsole is borrowed from Etnies' team favorite, the Jameson Vulc.

Cupsole - Durable and shock-absorbing to provide the best impact protection against hard landings. Cupsoles generally last longer than a vulcanized sole but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.
Foam Lite 1 Insole - Foam Lite 1 insoles are formulated with Ortholite and provide maximum long lasting comfort for your feet. The insoles also wick away moisture to keep your feet dry and contain a biocide to fight odor.
PU Rubberized Toe Cap - Added durability where your shoe needs it most, this polyurethane material helps protect your shoes from the constant abuse you throw at it.
Gum Rubber Outsole - Made from 400 NBS Gum Rubber giving the shoe long lasting, durable grip.
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.
