Etnies Helix Skate Shoes Wear Test Review
The Etnies Helix combines lightweight, breathable technology with the support and durability of the Marana. The Helix is built similarly to Etnies' flagship shoe, but with a PU molded mesh toe vamp. Made from the same material as the Marana XT toe cap, the mesh panel provides increased breathability and flexibility without sacrificing durability. The outsole has also been reworked for upgraded performance. The team favorite Jameson tread pattern is used only in key areas to cut down on weight while offering excellent grip. Tactics team rider Caleb Grant is a diehard Marana fan but loved the fit and lightweight breathability of the Helix.
