Made to withstand the harsh realities of street skateboarding, the Etnies Marana is the flagship for durability and support. The outsole is made with incredibly grippy and durable Michelin rubber, and the strong one piece toe has a fused rubber toe cap for improved flick and longevity. STI Evolution® foam in the midsole and a Pro Foam 1 insole provides support and superior impact protection. Padding on the collar and tongue protect your foot from flailing boards, and hidden lace loops allow you to tuck your laces back to prevent breakage. You'll have a hard time finding a shoe tougher or more supportive than the Marana.

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.
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.
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.
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.
After about 5 sessions, you can barely tell that rubber toe cap is starting to get wear ( WAY better than I expected!) the suede upper still looks brilliant and clean. If I can find these on sale again next time I need new skate shoes, these are definitely first pick. FYI, I only wear these to skate, not day to day walking.
