These shoes are awesome! The problem is that they have an extremely narrow fit. Good luck trying to find skate shoes that look as sharp as these.

My son and grandson both LOVE Etnies....they tell me they are comfortable and perfect for everyday wear.

A great shoe in both style and comfort. Not too wild, rather casual, yet sophisticated. Nice.

I love these. They are made very well and have a vibrant (but great male) color blue accent. They are great quality.

I have been skating for five years and I remember these. They are one of the only older style skate shoes from a few years ago. They are one of the most comfortable shoes and they last longer than a lot of the new Vulc style shoes coming out now. I wish that I could still find the Etnies Charters. They were the kills but you cannot even find them now or anything even like them. You cannot even skate in the shoes that are coming out with in the last three years. My friends and I had to go on eBay just to find a decent pair of shoes to skate that will last more than five weeks, and that look like skate shoes. Like globes and DC and Dvs style that have a lot of cushion. The Etnies are part of that short list too. I see now that a lot of companies including Etnies are coming out with these weird looking shoe with no grip on the sole and they look like running shoes. That is not even a skate shoe and its so stupid looking. Again that kind of made us all go to eBay looking for some real skate shoes.

I wear size 9.5 to 10.5 and I got size 10 but it was tight on my foot. I had to send them back. I love they way they look though!

Having slightly wider feet, the etnies Fader is my go to shoe. They tend to run wider than any of the other brands of skate shoes. I wish they had more color and style choices.

It's hard to buy shoes nowadays if you have any width or height to your instep. I've loved several previous Etnies, but these are cramped from the bottom of the laces forward. This seems to be a thing with various styles of shoes, but impossible to know from a product picture. If your toes or lower instep feel unduly cramped with certain shoes, these probably won't fit comfortably.

I got these for my husband so that he could get back to skating again (the base we moved to has a skate park and he cannot resist it's charms) but the shoes he used to prefer are no longer being manufactured. He settled for Etnies on the grounds that they were at least more durable than DC and Vans but these shoes are WAY TOO NARROW and now I must send them back. Etnies offers no widths other than medium, apparently, so he will have to slum it with DCs...he mourns this version of progress.

I was looking for casual all black shoes to wear to my work and elsewhere. This was the cheapest and the best-looking that I found. I had to send the first pair back and get a half size larger. They have a snug toe box, but otherwise they are perfect: very light, comfortable, nearly zero drop. Pure functionality.

Very comfortable, stylish, and a trusted, quality brand. Laces are a little short so I will probably replace them, but otherwise I am very pleased.

Liked the color and style, but not the fit. A bit narrow and the tongue was short. Ended up returning. Zappos service stellar as always!

The first pair I received were defective and were sent back, but the replacement pair have been great. Very good skate shoe - similar to Vans, but more comfortable to me, and good for doing just about anything... except running, as there is no arch support, as is normal for this kind of footwear. They look good with just about anything as well. I plan on getting another pair when these run out.

Handsome shoes, but they fell apart within three weeks. The sole became separated from the upper, which suggests a manufacturing defect. Zappos kindly replaced them for us with a different brand of shoe. I had ordered these for my son who skateboards and rides BMX. Both of these sports are hard on footwear, but he typically gets about four months of wear from shoes before they need replacement. If you are ordering these for everyday wear, they might be fine--and they are certainly good-looking. But I would not recommend using them for BMX or skateboarding.

These shoes are good for style BUT if you actually SKATE they fall apart faster then a celebrity marriage. Im certain that tapping the money to your feet would be more durable. Only get these for style, nothing else they are seriously just terrible, and before you get your pitchforks out I only skated in these for about an hours before they had a huge hole in the side. I'm not even that hardcore I'm talking just some ollies and flip trips on flat. If you have avoided smoking because you don't want cancer or heart disease do not get these because they are so terrible I now have both.

I like the look of these Etnies. They have an unusual fit. They are narrow at the ball of the foot and wide at the heel. It takes some finagling to get the laces tight enough that your heel does slip but loose enough that you do not cut circulation off to your toes.

I love these shoes! I have wore this style of shoe for at least 7 years. I will be sad when they discontinue them. I'm not a fan of the flimsier LS.

These are the only shoes that my husband really likes because they are so comfortable. He wears them until there are holes and the soles are almost gone.

Got the navy color. I was looking for something to go well with jeans, shorts, and khakis. These looked good with shorts - with or without socks, which was great. With the jeans and khakis, it was hit and miss. Sometimes looked good, and sometimes bad. I considered keeping them, but the main deal-breaker was how difficult they were to put on. I had to loosen up the laces a lot, and the heal part is not firm at all, so it was difficult to slide my heel into it.

If you are out for looks these are it. Most guys do not miss these on your feet. As for durability they wear out faster then most skate kicks. They are very comfortable and mold to your feet rather fast.

They fit big feet! My son wears a size 14 and usually gets a double wide shoe. He also has high arches. Thus, it's difficult to find youthful-looking sneakers that fit. These were a wonderful surprise fit given that they don't even come in a wide width.
