Creating innovative products that help advance skateboarders has been in etnies' DNA since day one, and etnies has pushed the envelope even farther by including STI Evolution Foam™ in the new Aventa and High Rise to join the Marana. Through rigorous testing, having a design team made up of real skateboarders and listening to the needs of etnies' team riders and skaters around the world, etnies has created some of the most advanced technologies in skate shoes. Available today, these two new shoes are super lightweight, more durable, comfortable and have a high-impact rebound quality unlike most standard skate shoes, all because of the STI Evolution Foam™ technology inside.
