I've owned a lair of Faders that have withstood the grueling fate of enduring High School, I only just recently replaced them after 7 years of near every day use with another pair of Faders and I am not disappointed in the least. These shoes are ridiculously durable and comfortable and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for those features in a shoe.
The Fader is a long-running etnies style with the trademark etnies logo integrated into the heel area. With a 300 NBS rubber outsole, it also features an egg crate construction in the midsole to add some extra cushion. This classic style comes with a die cut EVA insole and padded tongue and collar for additional protection and comfort.

Those are my favourite shoes, really love them and I pretty much only wear variations of the fader.
Faders are awesome. They are the only athletic shoes I wear. Don't hesitate on buying the white color. These shoes are smooth and great. Go for it.
Awesome shoes. Etnies Faders are the only athletic shoes I wear. The comfort is great, and especially for those with somewhat wide feet, you have to own a pair of Faders. Great shoe!
They are just perfect to ride. Awesome shoes :-)))
Love this shoe, literally own several pairs. Wish they would keep making them in just white though. I refuse to wear any other color shoe. And I don't like shoes that have all kinds of designs all over them. This shoe is simple and not over designed.
The white fader has been a go to shoe for me since the death of the Calicut, which I was wearing exclusively all the way back to my teenage years. It's sad that these two styles are dying out since they're the only ones I insist on wearing. Etnies, I beg you to put these back into production. I refuse to wear any of these other styles or color schemes you carry. I would gladly pay more per pair just to be able to buy a normal white skate shoe that doesn't have 100 different colors and patterns and stuff all over it. Your "custom shop" was also the greatest thing in the world. I made many pairs of shoes with it before you put that to rest. Please bring this stuff back.
Super stylish, comfy, and easy to clean.
Great shoes, very comfortable.
Great service! Beautiful shoes! 😊
I have been wearing Etnies for over 15 years now and are about the only shoes I rock. These are just as comfortable as all the others and the quality is great. Keep up the great work and I will keep buying them.
Of the shoes rate for riding BMX never was a lot of different kinds of shoes and these are the best ones for BMX riding especially how well they hold up unlike Nikes that only last for like 6 months I have more than one pair of the fader and they're great shoes and they last for like 2 years the only problem I have is running out of room on the bottom if you wear your shoes out like that I do recommend these for any actions supports but their best for BMX
It is just what I expected. Although the sole looks clearer in the picture. I still like it!
These are the only sports shoes that fit my feet correctly! Most shoes aren't big enough for my super fat feet, but the Fader LS and the original Low Cut are the ones that work, nothing else fits .
Hi, I had a shoe like this in the past, and I was completely satisfied with it that time, and this isn't changed a bit. It's comfortable, nice looking, really worth it's price!
Boyfriend is very happy with his shoes, comfy and he really likes the tiny "breathing" holes on them.
Most comfortable shoe out of the box. Good price point and like the all black color option
LOVE these shoes...My grandson wears only these and they are great! Thanks so much!
GREAT SHOES! mine are black with a grey Etnies logo on the side and a brown rubber sole, with black rubber on the bottom. the size on the box is accurate, not tighter or looser. they look great, feel great. especially if you don't like the newer style of super mega slim and pointy toe skate shoes with no padding, and miss the 90's to early 00's style of cushy padded puffy round toe skate shoe. PLEASE NEVER STOP MAKING THESE SOLE TECH!!!
I love these, but I wish they still had womens faders. Missing those.
Etnies have been the only shoe I've worn for the last 16 years! I only wish you'd bring back some styles from the early 2000's
I have very bad bunions and have tried many different types of shoes. Etnies Faders are the best! They are wide and the arch doesn't cause me to put pressure on my bunions. I have been wearing them for years and have always described them as "pillows for your feet"!
My dad absolutely loves these shoes it's all he asks for gifts
As always this shoe is exactly what etnies is about, comfortable, long lasting, and great looking shoes that are above all others out there.
Awesome as usual!!
nice treads. fit my stillo.
I like it for my grandson. I buy it because you have very few in size 15. I would buy more if there was more of a selection in size 15. It is great that they come in 2 days. Thanks
I have an older (3 years now :0) pair of Faders that are still going strong, I really appreciate how comfortable these shoes are.
Excellent and cool!
Muy c¢modas, como siempre. Todos los productos Etnies, son geniales.
I don't skate or do anything active. In fact, I have cerebral palsy that gives me a great difficulty walking, so shoes are kind of an important thing to me. I've been wearing etnies for over 10 years, and have tried other brands but for some reason these always break in very fast, even in the "break in" period they have ample cushion and every new pair feels familiar. It's like coming home. Very durable soles, which are great because I tend to drag my feet a bit. One pair can last me about a year. No other shoe has offered me that durability with comfort. I like the fader and calicut style because they have that nice wide front toe that has plenty of room and give, plus I love the skate shoe style and they look awesome with practically any outfit. I can't see ever stopping wearing these shoes. Please don't stop making this particular cut, either. I love these understated yet amazingly comfortable shoes.
Love the style of these shoes and there comfortable too, they only thing I don't like is they sound like I'm walking in moon boots down my hallway at my work, maybe this will subside after they break in.
I love this shoes, the are confortable, beautiful and will last long. High quality
Great shoes, very comfortable and beautiful with some bloody red laces :D
I love this shoe. It is similar to my old pair of Fader SMU's that I still have in mint condition since I hardly ever wear them except on only special occasions. Now that I have these I don't have to really worry about wrecking them but they keep clean if you keep up on them. Definitely recommend to anyone who likes Etnies.
I have simple tastes. I haven't skateboarded since I was a teenager, but I still find these types of sneakers to be the most comfortable and the best looking. Simple. No nonsense. all black. This is the only shoe I ever want to own. Don't ever cancel this line or this black on black option.
These shoes have proven to be durable as well as comfortable and for a reasonable price, which is why I am going to keep buying the Fader for the next season. I think in terms of the material used for the shoe always blows my mind because I've managed to keep a pair for more than 4 years and still looks like new. (A quality that Etnies must keep) The reason why I need a new pair of shoes is because the sole was too wormed out.
This is my favourite model/type of shoe. I buy a new pair each time the previous one gives out, and with heavy use that still brings me to only one new pair each year.
Great shoe! Please do not stop making the classic all black (not too many logos) shoe. This has always been my favorite shoe of all time! Keep it up Etnies! Cheers
I bought these shoes for my son he was very happy with them. They were what he wanted the price was reasonable service was quick to my surprise. If this style is still available in the future I would definitely buy again. I was happy with the service and product. Thank you
Please keep making these
Please keep making these.
I have a had time finding great shoes for my son, and your site has been perfect. I was a little worried about buying shoes online, but the fit is great and he's very happy. Thanks!
they are great,,,like always
Great shoes! Very comfortable! Would buy them again in a heartbeat!
this is the third time i`ve bought this kind of shoes (the same model), unnecessary more word
Old good design and quality :)
Please keep making the Fader series.
shipped quick got what i paid for saved some cash and avoided having to drive a town over to the mall. overall super comfy shoes that look slick. there were no faults or damages. 10/10 would buy again
My all time favorite shoe for comfort and fit.
The Fader is one of the best shoes out there!
I wear Etnies Fader collections since at least 2006. It is by far my prefered brand and design. My oldest pair is still in good shape, even after a daily use for years. Note: some editions are not as strong as before (the rubber is changing, and brown 2006 was the best year). First time I buy it online: Maximum comfort. Classy. Right size. In one word: perfect to me.
MOST COMFORTABLE SHOE TO WEAR NO MATTER WHAT YOU ARE DOING WORK ARE PLAY !!!
This review is for the Fader White/White/Light Grey shoes These shoes are absolutely incredible. They're made of quality material, the white and green go very well together and the girls think they're sexy. Not to mention they fit perfect and are very comfortable. I would recommend these to others but I don't want to see anyone else around me wearing these particular ones. They're just too fantastic.
Good shoe im happy with them
Good enough ;)
Etnies and nothing else for my feet :)
Nice shoe, had to buy them a size larger though. Unlike the RVM's, they fit like a glove. The Faders are more sturdy and ones used for a while. Bloody good shoe!
awesome shoe !!
Super confortables, le logo est cousu. Bonne qualit‚
Fits like a glove, love it! Why don't they sell them in shops any more? Bunch of lame converse style kooks......
One of the most comfortable shoe I have ever owned love them!
great shoe's. Like them from the first second.
Comfy skate shoes!
I have been buying this exact model for the past few years. It is comfortable, it fits perfectly around the ankle, so the shoe does not slip off when walking and it prevents your feet from easily getting wet in rainy weather. When the Fader disappeared from the Bulgarian market, I turned to the internet and I am really glad Etnies still produces it. When I wear out this pair I will buy one just like it again.
Is not my first product from Etnies , so you can have an idea in how I like your shoes.
Perfect size and very fast delivery very good.
all perfect...etnies the number 1!
very very beautiful shoes!!!!!!!
bought for a grandson who says they are very comfortable . he's satisfied. works at grocery store, sacking, walking, gathering carts from the parking lot.
I love the blue foxing and laces, they look much brighter in person. Although I can't say the material would hold up to the most intense skate sessions. I hope they bring out more colors like this design, as a girl I don't want to wear gaudy "neon pink and yellow sparkles" all the time.
Bought for my son who rates these shoes for comfort and fit. Always buys etnies now when looking for a skater type casual shoe. Very well made. The last pair he had lasted years so great value for money.
I love these shoes. Just bought a 2nd pair (different colour).
I work in concert production and constantly have to hustle back and forth from out front of stage to backstage. My son is a skater and got me hooked on Etnies years ago. The Etnies are the only shoes that I and several of my crew member have found that can provide our feet with protection from the constant pound of running around on the concrete stages and such. Etnies provide a great value for the price and comfort to our weary feet. Thanks for making our production days much better, by having the solid black available again! Tammy Seymore
They are great. I like the older style with the removable soles, because the way I lace my shoes i tuck them under the soles. Needless to say i can't do it with these.
The world is our playground, and only Etnies shoes make it possible.
great for price
The insoles are surprisingly thick and very comfortable. I walk around allot, and these shoes feel really good once they're broken in (the toe area is a little stiff for the first few days). I like that they are all black, it was actually kind of hard for me to find an all black shoe in this kind of style, wtf? The material is pretty cool, its like a felt/leathery type stuff, it feels waterproof, but I know it isn't, you would just ruin your shoes if your used them in water. But I like them, they're comfortable, I can wear them to work and school, and they're black but not shiny black, more of a flat black.
Love Etnies! I have been buying this style of Etnies for years. Got these on sale along with another pair. I rarely buy from another company.
had etnies stuff before, first time ive ordered off the site. very quick delivery. good shoes, i always tend to wear black trainers anyway. in the sale aswel, so even better. and got vouchers for surfstitch which i used. will defo shop here again. p.s. dc shoes have been terrible. still waiting for items 3 weeks later. boo
My daughter is extremely happy with this purchase.
the shoes are sick ....but if they glowed in the dark they would be even sicker and if etnies had alot more colors of the same shoe that would be great...but what ever im satisfied
these were my third pair of etnies and as always i wasn't disappointed they are comfortable love the black on black and these shoes are built well so that last etnies are the only brand of shoes i buy.
It fits very good on the foot.Very look a like!
This shoes are comfortable, happening everywhere...
this is my 7th pair of FADER ... I Wont buy any other brand again.
Month ago i ordered two pairs of Black/Dirty Wash. Order was delivered fast and without any mistakes (Size or Color/Style). Love free shipping for orders over 50?. :) I buy only Etnies shoes for 8+ years now. So next pair will definitely be from Etnies. I like how comfortable all shoes were/are and i like styles as well. But would really like to se back something like this one: http://etnies.com/shop/santiago-8/black/ I also liked style with yellow logo.
It's my all time favorite, It once save my foot in a moto accident, I have several pairs and it will be my definitive forever shoe, I barely wear others I hope this model will be always available, otherwise will have to buy the rest of the stock for the rest of my life :)
I love it.
I absolutely love these shoes!!! .... They are super comfortable, and look out standing! The only reason I gave the value **** 's is because i've only had them for about 4 months and baby them. I plan to buy atleast 2 more colors of these.
My son loves these etnies. They are very true to size and fit him perfect.
I love these damn shoes. They look amazing and feel even more comfortable. My feet are very wide and are not supported through most comapanies, especially since I have a high arch. I've always bought skater shoes because they come wide, but not always with success. This is my first time buying anything from Etnies and I'm completely thrilled with my purchase, they fit perfectly on my odd sized feet. This is definitely my dream design.
Very nice shoes! sometimes they can get easily dirty, but then again they're named Dirty Wash :) Very comfortable and nice design with thick padding in the tongue. Sometimes when it's not very light outside, you can't see the Etnies logos and they look completely black. But just very cool shoes
This product was purchased as a gift. Good quality product, very impressed with the speedy delivery.
Great shoes, very comfortable. The first week they make a clack sound, but that disappeared very soon.
This is your perfect choice for a skate shoe that you can wear it everywhere. It's got nothing fancy about it, clean classical skate shoe shape and of course comfy.
It's my second pair of Etnies shoes, quite difficult to find in my town, so also first time shopping online! And it was a great experience, really nice price and they fit perfectly in my feet. Great design and very comfortable. Thanks!
This shoe is very comfortable and cool, for 40? it was a gift... I love you etnies! You did it again!
I've always worn Etnies shoes and I like the design of the Fader. It is just too bad that too many of these new shoes are made from this cheap nubuck stuff that is nowhere near as durable as suede or leather. If this style and color would come out in suede, I would love it.
I liked your shooes but it was a just a little problem with the adress,lucky in the end i got them
Absolutely atrocious! I feel like my toes have gone through desert storm after wearing these sneakers. My previous pair of Faders were so comfortable that it might as well been made out of unicorn leather, because everyone knows that unicorn leather is the best type of leather ever. But this current pair was probably made with the leather cut from the devil's foreskin. Don't buy this.
These shoes are pretty good. I'm still breaking them in,but so far I'm enjoying them. They're a bit of a tight fit at first. Especially for those who don't have narrow feet. They felt almost painful to wear for the first week or so,but after awhile it all goes away and then comes the comfort. The softness of the soles make it feel like you're walking on Nerf foam. The tightness,plus the soft cushion allow your feet to stay dry much better than your standard tennis shoes. The style looks great. I'm a simple person and prefer dark colors. Nothing too flashy. So the Black Dirty Wash was perfect for me. Very pleasing to the eye. All this for the price its at is beyond worth it. I may actually buy another pair soon!
Your shoes are my daughters favorite shoes. These are actually going to be her wedding shoes. Fader shoes with a wedding dress...
These shoes look fine, and are comfortable, however, the pair I received in the mail make a clicking noise every time I step forward with my left foot. I have no idea what is making that noise. It's not surface dependent, and it's pretty annoying.
