Etnies brings you Chris Joslin's first pro model shoe. Chris designed these shoes to withstand the abuse of skateboarding day in and day out. These shoes feature the Michelin outsoles which last three times longer than standard skate shoe soles. Underneath the durable single piece toe is a hidden toe cap that goes from the toe box, all the way past the ollie area, ensuring a long life of the shoe. These shoes are just like Chris Joslin's skating, unstoppable.
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.
Pro Foam 1 Insole - Pro Foam is the next step up from the Foam Lite insole and provides added cushioning and support while skating. These PU foam based insoles also provide great comfort. Pro Foam 1 is made of single density PU foam.
One Piece Toe - A one piece toe allows the upper material to wear evenly, without worrying about blowing out a seam
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.
