I have had these for a year and a half and wore them hard. The tread and grip is still good while the pad in the sole of the heel is the first thing to really fall. It has been worn very flat. Compared to a pair of the DVS dirt series which is made for dirt jumping on bikes, these have held up way better. The DVS fell apart before I had them for one year and they were a lot more expensive. These are the cheapest size 14 skate shoes and I am happily ordering my second pair right now.

The first pair of these I got (June 2013) lasted well over a year, but the second pair (September 2014) is already falling apart in several places -- in less than 6 months. I will not be buying a third pair.

I generally wear a 10.5 and purchased a 11 because I recall that Etnies run small, with the 11's my toes were hitting the front of the shoe. For reference, I wear a timberland size 10 Otherwise, I like the style, suede has a nice look though might not hold up to heavy skating.

With or without socks this shoe slips on my heel. They seem to fit, but I can't get them tight enough. I'll give them some time and hope they get better. Never had a shoe slip like this.

They seemed to run a little small at 11.5 I was on the fence about sending them back for a 12. Wore them a couple days and the padding broke in just fine. Comfortable, lightweight and breathable. Just what I wanted.

Bought these for my husband...he loves these shoes. Says he won't wear anything else now because they are so comfortable!

I bought these for my hubs. He's beyond annoying when it comes to shoe shopping, which is why I appreciate Zappos so much. He actually liked these so much that we ended up getting them in 2 colors. Comfort is definitely his #1 priority, and these were the only style out of about 10 pairs that he deemed comfy and padded/cushy enough to keep, so these shoes are a big win in my book.

Runs a bit tight, leaving little room for natural toe wiggle. Moderate quality-look to it. The design of the side/tongue down to the sole causes tight pain due to a seem in a bad spot.

Nice clean minimalist sneaker for kicking around in style. My first pair of etnies; I don't know if they all run small, but these sure did! Order at least a half-size larger than you usually do, maybe even a full size.

I have not worn Etnies for a few years, but they are still among my most favorite skate shoes to wear. The best way to break in new shoes, I find, is bending the shoes from toe to heel. It is still going to take some wearing to really work, but the bending does help.

Excellent shoes that fit very well at first. I noticed immediately they felt slightly narrow, but nothing that warranted a return. The tongue could be a little longer. While putting these shoes on, I find myself sometimes having to "dig" out the tongue. Even with the shoelaces loosely tied, it's not possible for me to slide my feet in. Not a deal breaker, but noticeable whenever I wear these after I've worn other shoes.

My husband received these from me for Christmas and loved the style and the look of it. Only problem is, they were a little snug in the front. He's wearing them in now, but they still fit a little tight. Suggest you up the size.

I am an almost 35y/o woman, and I am hooked on old skater style sneakers, which are now going the way of the dinosaur. I have been a loyal Vans customer for many years, but wasn't impressed by the styles being offered these days, and am also nit-picky for specifically black on black shoes. I broadened my search, found a few I liked, but settled on the Etnies. I liked the style, the position of the laces, and of course the black shoe with black sole. They fit well, a bit stiff but I'm thinking they'll loosen up. Support seems fine. A little disappointed in the shoe material as it it "action leather" having a distinct nu-buck appearance. Ah, well, they look good anyway.

My son loves these shoes. He wears them regularly, they are holding up well and look great. We love etnies, good quality and durability for the price.

Sorry to report that I haven't had much luck with this etnies shoes - had to return 2 pairs by now, and am giving up. First pair, the right shoe had an obvious manufacturing defect - the shoe itself was built skewed, so my foot sat diagonally inside it, with my toe and left foot edge pressing quite uncomfortably against the shoe. Never seen that before in a shoe. Asked Zappos for a return, got a second pair of the same style & color, and of course size. This second pair was, no kidding, visibly smaller, maybe 1/2 an inch, and did not fit. Very disappointed in the brand, seems like very flaky quality control. Zappos of course is awesome, as always!!!

I buy a new pair of shoes once every year or two. I bought two pair of these within 3 months because my dogs got a hold of the first pair. They are comfortable and I love how they are not flashy like a typical Etnies shoe. I'm almost 30 years old and always preferred a black Etnies shoe like this or similar.

These shoes are everyday shoes that you can use casually as well as with jeans and a sports jacket for that semi-elegant/cool look. I was very impressed with the lightning fast shipping and handling and vast shoe selection from Zappos. Needless to say, the website makes it very easy to get everything done quickly and painlessly.

I really liked these shoes when I first got them. But not even a week after I received them, the rubber sole started to come apart from the fabric of the shoe on both shoes on both sides where it bends when you walk. They also started to squeak. These are not very well made. I usually wear Vans because they last me so long but I thought I'd give these a try. I won't be trying any more Etnies shoes from now on. Not even two months later and I had to buy new shoes to replace these. What a waste.

These shoes are incredibly narrow and have no give in the material at all. I had to return them immediately. I do not normally have a problem with shoes being too narrow.

I bought these as a gift for my brother. I love the fact there is free shipping and a 365 day return policy. It came in a timely manner, but if there is any problem, I can wait 'til Christmas, have him try them on, and still have the option to return them.

First pair of Etnies I've had and they feel pretty good. Sizing is right in line with DC Shoes, but with more support.
