The etnies Marana upper was so durable it was outlasting its outsole. To remedy this fact, etnies looked to the number one rubber manufacturer in the world, Michelin, to make a completely new kind of outsole. Using a special tire rubber compound that doesn’t compromise on grip or board feel, Michelin and etnies were able to create one of the most durable outsoles in skateboarding. This etnies cupsole features a suede upper with a bonded toe cap that adds a second layer of protection to the highwear flick and ollie area. Put it all together and you’ve got one of the most durable shoes in skateboarding. The etnies Marana Cupsole fits true to size and costs $75 on CCS.com.
