The Etnies Marana Michelin is an update on one of Etnies best shoes – basically they’ve paired up with Michelin Tires (yes, the tire people and in World Rally Championship, F1, etc…) and made an already indestructible shoe, even more so. Rumor has it take Chris Joslin thirty days on average to go thru a pair, so I’m sure it’ll last most skaters more, which means you can get a extra deck instead of shoes since these will hold up longer than most.

They look and feel great and skate even better, the toe box is a little stiff but I’m sure it’s my wide feet and they’ll break in soon enough. At $75, it’s a great value and you won’t be disappointed.
