I have to admit that I purchased these looking for something that could be worn with nice looking slacks but provide a lot of comfort for all day wearing. They look nice. However, they advertise "STI Foam Lite 1 footbed provides superior comfort." Uhhmmm...compared to concrete, maybe. The footbed wasn't glued down, so I pulled it out and it was literally laughable it was so thin and puny.

Cute and very good looking shoe, but runs almost a whole size smaller. I wear 14 on other brands and these would not fit. Sad I have to send them back. By the way, same with the other pair of Etnies I ordered.

Beautiful vibrant red color, cute style, lightweight, fits true to size (I wear 9.5), and affordable, but unfortunately uncomfortable, due to the stitching across the instep of the shoe. I walk a lot, to, from, and during work, so my shoes have to be comfortable, and these shoes hurt, after less than 5 minutes of wearing them around my carpeted apartment. The stitches and seams, at the instep rub, causing pain, with and without socks. Such a shame, because it's a cool looking shoe.

I wanted a pair of all-black casual shoes, but I still wanted them to be girly. I really like these. I don't usually wear skate shoes because they make your feet look so extremely wide, but these Faders are not as wide as traditional skate shoes. The neon laces are really cute with jeans and a black or white shirt, but they don't match much else. I actually bought a pair of sparkly silver shoelaces and swapped them out. These shoes are very comfy and cute, and they make my big feet look slightly less big!

Received etnies 2 days after I ordered, Amazing service. Shoes are comfy, good color and accurate size. My son loves the shoes. Nothing bad to report. Amazing.

Beautiful and comfortable, but I needed a wider shoe than medium, so I had to return it. It doesn't come wider. Didn't wear it long enough to evaluate arch support, etc.

I got these for my 99 year old dad and he loves the compliments he gets whenever he steps out with them on! Plus they are very comfortable. Zappos got them to us in record time!

Love the shoes but if I had known they were not at all black and red I would have never ordered them! The box even says red but is actually very orange.

I bought these in all black over the Etnies Fader, shoes that I used to own, and I'm glad that I did. They fit like Etnies but the two main differences are the tongues and looks. The tongue is much thinner, so you have more of a normal shoe comfort level. Notice how this model has two different kinds of material on the top and sides. It's that that makes it look cooler, in my opinion.

Been a while since I bought a pair of Etnies so I figured I'd order another pair to change things up. I've worn size 14 for the past 8 years. All other Etnies' shoes I've had were size 14. However, received these shoes, tried them on and it felt like my toes were trying to curl underneath of my foot. Checked the last pair of Etnies I had and noticed that they changed where they made their shoes and the materials. Wanted to order a pair in 15 to give them a chance, but they don't make them.

I have been a skater/bmx rider for about 15 years gone through a lot of shoes. By far these are the best shoes I have owned. I have had 8 pairs of the all black Faders. They are tough, comfy and fit big feet size 13. Zappos always has them and I'm thankful for that because no one else has 13 anymore Pacsun Tillys etc.

I normally have worn the Callicuts, but I thought this paralleled the same style. I normally wear a 12 with Etnies. I was sadly disappointed that the Fader ran almost a size smaller than other styles in the same "size." My big toe was rubbing on the front of the shoe. The width was great. I need a 13 in this shoe or I need to have these stretched a little bit. I had the same problem with the Metal Mulisha Cartel in which I bought a 12; however, I bought the Fader Vulc in a 12 and that fit great. I do not understand how they mix their sizes up. I really like the STI Foam in these shoes though. The value is great per dollar if they fit right. Also I have bought many shoes through Zappos and they are a great company to do business with. Everything they advertise is exactly what they follow through on.

I got size 12 in this, but they were too short/tight/small. The width was fine and the foam sole feels great along with it being a good looking show. It is quite frustrating when you can buy one Etnies style shoe in a 12 and have it fit fine, but then the other style may be too tight in the "same size." I guess I would need a 13 for this shoe.

I love Zappos! Awesome delivery, within two or three days, great brands and styles! I have to order online because my Grandsons and myself wear large sizes and I can't find double wides in the stores for me. No problem with Zappos! I have found my shoe store!

I agree with commenter, Brandon on this one. I really like the style and look of this shoe. I really wanted to wear it. I tried a 12 and a 13. The 12 did not feel like a 12 as it was too short in length and way too narrow. The 13 was great in length, but was still just way too narrow, unfortunately. I had to give low stars on comfort/overall because they hurt my feet from being too narrow, but I really like how they look.

I've been buying 13's for 20 years, and this is only the second time I've ever run into a pair of 13's being too small. I swapped them for 14's, which fit a little larger than I like. An option for 13.5's would have been really nice, but I've only seen that size a couple times over the years.

These are all leather shoes, and as a result have a very stiff toe box that is not good for walking or any activity that requires you to bend your toes. The toe box is also very cramped (in part because of the stiff leather), so you need to go up at least a size to get enough wiggle room. The styling is cool though, especially the black and white contrast! It would be nice if Etnies made a canvas version of this style.

I bought these for my husband. He is very particular in his shoes since he wears a size 14-15. He loves them! I am going to buy him another pair for Christmas!

My teenage son loves these shoes; they are all he wears. Considering the amount of use, they wear pretty well. He doesn't often find shoes that are comfortable but these really work for him.
