Nice looking skate shoes that are vegan are hard to find and these are both. Can't comment on how they hold up over time but initial impression is good. Would give five stars if they were a little more padded on bottom.
The Barge LS has been redesigned. We revamped the old pattern for a fresh new shoe. Adding a hefty armoured collar and raising the heel has made all the difference in reconstructing the Barge LS into a slimmer and more narrow shoe design.

These shoes are so comfy and they look good as well
Love the look. Love the feel. Got a 7.5/9 and it's a good fit.
Really nice shoes and very comfy Only thing I don't like is that the heel broke not long after I got them (don't know how) so they could be stronger but overall very happy with them :)
Snazzy and comfortable.
Having not worn a skate shoe for a couple of years; and returning to ride BMX meaning the need has once again arose, I've been excited to see Etnies offering a range of styles without the use of animal products in their production, aka Vegan. I've always favoured beefier (not literally) construction, there is ample padding on the tongue; to support the ankle; and a plush feel overall, with a cushioned feel to the insole. The raised heel of the sole helps to achieve a good balance of support and feel. I have had physical problems attributed to wearing through the soles of skate shoes in the past. The canvas and sole are both easy enough to clean, I have managed to cake the shoes in mud a couple of times, a bit of water, a sponge, a shoe brush and they quickly come up good. So far, so good, I will look to Etnies again next time!
I love the simple look of these shoes. When new, they are a bit stiff and they can push into your toes when walking but they get more flexible after a few days of use. They are quite easy to keep clean, especially after spraying them with wear and water resistance coatings.
I've used DC's before but the quality of Etnies are amazing
They are just so comfortable I cannot believe it. Amazing shoes!
quick delivery ! nice
Damm good shoe nicely priced . Dig the light padding !
There a little bit stiff. And the shape is more bold skate shoe than I acspected
Comfy and beauty, everything is just great! Thank you!
Great board feel,really comfortable,got holes after 3 weeks but I skate Mob grip so that's inevitable with any shoe.
Exactly what I wanted.
Hi Etnies, is this a vegan product? I mean it is suede, but is it real suede, or is it synthetic. I mean not from an animal. The questions is valid for your other leather products? are they leather from an anima or they are synthetic leather* Thanks alot
Great shoes for every day, fixed perfect and cool design.
Most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. The stock insoles are kickass. Etnies fan for life.
These shoes were great until the backing in the heal shattered apart, i can feel the little pieces digging into my heal. Be gentle with the heal and don't smash them down when putting them on and they will be your best friend. I wear an 11 but got the 10.5 because these shoes run big.
Really comfortable. Glad I got them.
Best thing is super comfy! has quickly become my every day shoes as they even work with smart ish trousers, such an awesome shoe.
they look great on me also love the color
Bought for teenage son to skateboard in - he loves Etnies!
Very good grip on Bmx
My son is a hip-hop dancer and he's happy with the shoes!
I have had a pair of Barge LS ahoes for over a year now, and this is the first time a pair of skating shoes has lasted me until i grew out of them. They are close to dying but they havent fallen apart yet, and i do not treat my shoes nicely. These are very durable and super comfortable. I have one problem only. When i bought my shoes, the whole line of colors was awesome. I have the light grey blue trim ones from summer 2012. But now, the color schemes just arent as awesome. I love etnies for their color, board feel, and durability, but not as much for their style anymore. If you cant think of any more truly awesome color schemes, then you dont have to change the old ones etnies! Come on.
fantastic product, quick service
Barge LS shoes are my go to shoe for casual wear and light boarding. After just one wearing they seem form to your foot and are more comfortable than slippers.
They are very, very comfortable because of the wide style, and the ultra cushioned STI Foam sole. Great for skateboarding, even though I love these I use the Etnies Bledsoe Low, and these ones for Longboarding, since feet hurt when you ride for long periods of time, so I need an ultra cushioned and comfortable shoe. But it's awesome for skating. Colours are incredible too!
These shoes are great! Everything on the shoes were durable and comfortable. The insoles are extremely comfortable and the outsole has tons of grip and last longer than most shoes i've had. Overall this shoe is comfortable and durable, probably one of the best shoes i've ever skated. I really don't think I could find a single flaw on the shoe...
Friggin love these shoes super comfortable and look great. They look even better with black laces
fuckin etnies barge no doubt! sick skaters
