STI WEAPONS OF MASS DURABILITY
Formulated with only skateboarding in mind, all etnies technology was developed in the STI Lab to put advanced footwear technology in the hands of skateboarders. As a result, we have perfected STI Evolution® Foam technology and a range of toe caps for different applications of use. For the past 30 years, etnies has been working non-stop to better perfect footwear specifically designed for skateboarders. Enhancing skateboarding footwear since 1986, because we give a fuck.

STI Evolution Foam is our innovative and environmentally responsible approach to advancing product with technology in order to produce lightweight, long-lasting footwear. Not only does STI Evolution Foam create a lighter skate shoe, it is also resistant to high-impact skating with its durable rebound foam cushioning. The production process of this advanced foam both eliminates waste and improves efficiency. Instead of die cut from a sheet, STI Evolution Foam midsoles are made from a unique molding process. We simply set a predetermined number of foam pellets into a mold and heat it until it expands to the right size.

Within our footwear line, the location and amount of STI Evolution Foam incorporated is tailored unique to each shoe. Each varying degree is created with a particular performance application in mind. The Highlight uses STI Evoluition Foam in full with it’s exposed outsole, creating an extremely lightweight shoe using zero rubber. Partial application is seen in the Jameson E-Lite and Marana E-Lite with both footbed and an exposed midsole made from STI Evolution Foam for maximum stability and support while still providing impact protection.
