These shoes are way too narrow and there is no return service after several days. You can’t generate an RMA and shipping label without human intervention and they aren’t responding. Everyone at Etnies must have COVID.

I just bought these, right before one of the best days of freeride mountain biking I have ever had in Southern Utah. I was worried the shoes might be a bit too thin, but they are actually perfect! They are super protective and have some hard, protective surfaces in places where you want them. However, pedal feel is where this shoe really shines. You can feel the pedals perfectly, while not ever feeling stabbed by pins. I sent many big drops and jumps and have lived the way the bike felt under my feet. They also grip loose dirt and rocks really well, essential for freeriding and mountain biking in general. If you ride flats, you need these shoes.
I was recently looking for a summer work sneaker. I have worn Etnies for years, and after finding some limited options for waterproof lightweight work shoes out there, I decided to give these a shot. My job is around lots of water, and the rubberized/waterproof material has been holding up great for a few weeks now, after many drenchings. The extra ankle support has also been really nice when carrying heavy things, and obviously they're a good looking shoe. There was definitely a break in period, but afterwards they have been pretty comfortable. I'm glad I tried these! Oh, and as stated on other reviews, ordering a half size up from your usual is wise advice. Customer service was a bit slow with returns/exchanges, but eventually they got back to me and made everything right.
