Designed and tested by Aaron Ross, the etnies Number Mid is exactly what he was looking for in a BMX shoe – a cupsole with a grippy outsole featuring System G2 in the heel and STI Foam Lite level 1 cushioning footbed for support. This BMX-specific outsole features a herringbone tread pattern designed to grip pedals, but also releases when needed without tearing. A dense EVA shank in the arch provides extra protection from the pedals without sacrificing pedal feel, while softer EVA on the toe and heel provide extra flexibility and comfort. The etnies Number Mid also features a removable strap for stability and style. If you’re a brakeless BMX rider, make sure to check out the Brake

Reviews for Number Mid
Super comfortable shoes, very good quality.
Just got my 1st pair of Number Mid and they are fantastic. They are a really mad bright blue colour with a bright yellow, see through sole and yellow laces. They are awesome. Super comfortable and very light weight. You can also take the velcro strap off to give a different look. Give these babies a try. They are magic!!
Those are just really good. But the white ribbon Velcro is to big, if it was a little shorter it could be great.
Anyway good shows for BMX.
BMX 4 LIFE!!!
very nice model and very comfort shoes on the same time simple and original . I am very thankful buying them
THX! great shoe for work
Just got my 4th pair of Number Mids yesterday. Usually with new kicks that look this good I try to keep them fresh, maximizing their fashion value. But not with these pups, I can't wait to strap these shoes on and start abusing the $%*t out of them! Only problems I've had were with the one pair that had a suede upper, which ripped prematurely along the outsole. Also ,another pair for some reason, caused severe discomfort to my pinky toe. But that's more an issue of my anatomy. My little toe just happens to jam right into a heavily stitched seam inside the shoe causing discomfort.
I love this shoe and all the crazy colorways that Aaron Ross comes up with. Not a big fan of his colorful bikes, but it works well when applied to footwear.
I hope this shoe becomes a staple to the Etnies line. If any brand managers are reading this, please don't discontinue the Number!
I love it pretty much. they're confortable and pretty. the price is fabulous!!!!!!! I usuallu drive a motorcycle so i hope they can last many time!! GREAT!!!
shipped right away. Easy to track. My son has them on his desk with the rasta laces waiting for better weather!! Its ok tho he still hasnt worn out his Metal Mulisha Etnies!!!
I've spent a good 2 months, trying to wrap my head around what kind of shoes I would get for mountain biking. There are VERY few companies who make shoes marketed specifically towards mountain bikers that use flat pedals. Of the ones that do exist, they always gave me the impression that the upper was overly built to the point where they'd turn your feet into a sweaty mess.
Suddenly it hit me. I should be looking to see what's geared towards the BMX crowd as surely they are looking for similar features. That's when I discovered the Number Mid. The next day I went to my local skate shop and found the exact pair I was looking for; the green ones. Yes, it had to be the green ones. They were the ones that were going to make me feel 14 again, bringing me to ride in skinny jeans, which I'll leave to you to argue if that's a good thing or not.
To get to the point, these are by far the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. My feet tend to get way too hot very quickly. With these, my feet always feel like they are the right temperature. This makes me very happy indeed, as nothing will get me more vexed than a screaming, inflamed pair of stinky feet.
The other thing I noticed is just how cushioned the sole is. While riding at a skatepark one day, I had to bail from a jump and land hard on my feet onto concrete. I was impressed with how well these shoes absorbed the impact. I'm certain that with any other shoe, I would have woken up with a bruised heel the next day.
An important feature every bike rider looks for, who sports the flat pedals, is the grip. Not grippy enough and your feet are unexpectedly thrown from the security of your pedal. Too grippy and trying to slide your foot from the pedal to prevent an awful outcome becomes challenging and also makes it difficult to move your foot to make slight adjustments. Thankfully I have to say that the herringbone grip on the Etnies Number Mid is ideal; my foot stays and disengages when I want. Wet or dry, it doesn't matter. On top of having just the right amount of grasp, the sole seems to withstand any sort of tearing which has plagued many of my previous skate style shoes used for biking.
The bonus? These shoes costed less than any of the mountain bike specific shoes. Although I must say, I wasn't impressed that I paid $15 more in Canadian dollars than the American MSRP. Come one, our dollar is damn strong, now.
The only negative thing I can say about these shoes, is that they are not waterproof. However, in retrospect, I have failed to come across a bike shoe that can deflect water. I find this surprising, considering the amount of riders in the world that spend 60-70% of their riding in the rain. Those that ride in the Pacific Northwest or the UK, for example. Not that I've actually been to the UK, but I've listened to enough people from there jabber on about "how damn wet it is" all the time.
I can easily say that the Etnies Number Mid is the perfect amalgamation of style, function and price. It was the first shoe that I looked at, which blended everything into one really great shoe; I didn't have to give up on one feature for another. This shoe just gets it right.
Now I just have to push my riding to warrant such a fun green coloured blur on my feet!
