These shoes are our 3rd in a row of Etnies. My 12 yr old son is an avid competitive skateboarder. He skates hardcore for 3-5 hours 6 days a week. We go through shoes FAST! Van's only last days before they start separating from the sole and the cloth tearing...some of the others a little longer. But these Etnies have been amazing! He wears out the sole from the decking on the skate board but the rest of the shoes are totally intact! Impressive! We purchase shoes every 2-3 months because of his constant skating. I will continue to purchase these!
This Marana Kids was developed to be the most durable cupsole in skateboarding, and its lightweight, super comfortable STI Evolution Foam midsole enhances cushioning and won't pack out. It has a Pro 1 polyurethane footbed and full-length flex grooves in the 400 NBS rubber outsole for flexibility. The Marana Kids' fused-on injected rubber toe cap makes it super hard to wear through. In fact, Ryan Sheckler said they are "the longest lasting shoe I've ever skated!"

Nice shoe true to size.
Loved that I could buy it in a smaller size and my child likes them.
my grandson choose these shoes for his birthday,they arrived before the due date on inspecting these shoes they are very well made a perfect fit and very good value for money also i was unable to buy them from the high street.my grandson is very well pleased and he says they are really comfortable will be shopping with you again.
My 8 year old son loves this shoe. It is the only one he will ever wear. I have purchased about 12 pairs in a row for him now and he never ask for anything else. It has lasted the longest out of the shoes he has tried before them and I am sure I will be buying plenty more. The best skate shoe I have found for young kids who can really skate and take it seriously.
Since I found that size 5 is more a 0.5 size to big and I needed to go down.. I choose this size (4.5). Perfect fit! Just one problem.. the insole is super thin compair (I think) to the real one. But you can remove it (with some force) and put your own if you want.. Thats the only complain I have.
Victory is mine! The boy loves the shoes & so do I! ..oh yeah and I'd like to mention that I especially searched for these shoes because of the color of the sole. It leaves a cleaner appearance even after playing in the dirt and grass all day! If you had more options like this I'd be all over it ;-)
Stoere leuke schoenen voor een mooi prijsje! En top levering binnen 2 dagen!!
They seem very solid. It won't get ruined after kickflip or Ollie. I would recommend those shoes. Nathan
