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
Primary Upper Materials
  • Suede
  • Pro Foam 1 Insole
  • PU Rubberized Toe Cap
  • Michelin Outsole Technology
  • STI Evolution™ Foam
  • Hidden Lace Loops
  • Padded Collar And Tongue

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.

Very Durable

Etnies Marana Michelin Skate Shoes - burgundy/tan/white
The marana is a very durable shoe. The rubber toe cap and suede last a very long time, and after that, the layer behind them is also very durable. The Michelin sole is the most durable in the game, great for those who set up their feet a lot. The big con is that the new Michelin sole doesn't break in all the way and become floppy like i like it. Additionally, the only impact protection is the insole, as right below it is the Michelin outsole. If durability is your number one concern, i would say go for these. If you like super floppy shoes however, i would say try something else. And if you jump down big stuff, make sure you have a good insole.

Etnies Marana Michelin Skate Shoes
Comfy and last, but very quickly the toe rand started peeling away from the suede. I squirt some super glue in to hold it a bit, but that was a bit discouraging to start coming apart even before there was any wear really starting. I like the sole and they don't feel like my feet are moving around in them. Usually I have to fight between having my feet shift around or tightening the laces down to the point where I get pinch points and hot spots.

Etnies Marana Michelin Skate Shoes - black/tan (chris joslin)
Good shoe broke in quick. I've heard this shoe lasts for awhile but I've had mine for about 2 weeks and there's a hole in the big toe, however I do practice hardflips and kickflips more than most other tricks. I like how the insoles are removable and the overall look and design of the shoe. I also have a hole in the ollie area and it's really messed up where the laces go through the holes. I like how you can lace the shoes from the inside so they dont RIP as easy. Overall I like the shoe I just wish it lasted longer without significant wear and the need of duct tape

Asked by Kevin R on 8/9/2017
If this shoe is just the Marana OG with Michelin rubber rather than the regular rubber compound they use, should I order the same size as my OG Marana?
I'm an 11.5 in the OG, 11 in the Marana Vulc and 11 in the Marana XT; I want to see if I need 11.5 or not.
Answered by Graig A (Tactics Employee) on 8/10/2017
These would be a similar fit to the OG and we would recommend ordering the same size you normally would in that.

How is the boardfeel on the shoe
Answered by Graig A (Tactics Employee) on 7/6/2017
These have good board feel but are still cupsole so it will be a little less than any other vulcanized shoe. But these are slimmed down for some extra feel

Asked by alpako on 4/26/2013
is there extra laces ?
Answered by Tim S (Tactics Employee) on 5/1/2013

Asked by Dmar on 2/9/2013
Does this shoe run true to size/ width? I have heard it runs half a size small and you are better off ordering half a size larger than your normal shoe size. Is that true?
Answered by Daniel B (Tactics Employee) on 4/2/2013
This shoe runs true to size its just a little tight in the toe box on the sides but it will break in after a while.
