I know it’s the middle of summer and reviews are a little hard to come by until the ground is blanketed with snow. Even though these are not “snow” gear by any means nothing feels better than putting these on after a long day of riding…or just throwing em on anytime.
Who : Etnies
What : Scout/Scout MT
Where : Your local Etnies Dealer
When : Available now in more colors than you can shake a stick at
Why : Breathable mesh upper (most models), Elastic heel support, Fully lined interior, Exposed STI Evolution Foam midsole with rubber pods, STI Foam Lite Level 1 footbed, TPU welded rap bar.
- The mesh upper is incredibly light weight and breathable.
- The shoe is an easy in/out AND reinforced in the back from the Elastic heel support.
- With a fully lined interior you can rock these comfortably with or without socks
- STI Evolution foam is not only very lightweight and extremely cushy but it is a no waste process to produce making it very eco conscious.
- As if the Evolution Foam wasn’t enough, the STI Foam Lite Level 1 foot bed adds 1 more layer of comfy.
- Not only is it a throw back to the original Etnies Rap the TPU Welded rap bar adds a bit of lateral support.
Personal Thoughts : The most comfortable shoes I’ve ever had on my feet EVER! They feel like you have nothing on your feet AND everything on your feet at the same time. It’s amazing how lightweight these shoes are. When you first grab the box it doesn’t even feel like there’s even a single shoe in there let alone a pair. The Evolution Foam is not only that main reason this shoe is so light but it’s like walking on clouds. When I know ill be on my feet all day (or if I had to wear some other footwear all day and my dogs are barking), without a doubt Ill Scout it out!
*On a side note, these shoes are a part of the Etnies “Buy A Shoe, Plant A Tree” project. Etnies is fighting for our planet. We skate, surf, snowboard and ride BMX all on our ONE planet. It’s all we have and we want to keep it healthy so we can continue doing what we love. etnies’ green path to a healthier planet includes its Buy a Shoe, Plant a Tree reforestation project. etnies plants a tree for every pair of shoes purchased from its Buy a Shoe, Plant a Tree collection. etnies is committed to continue planting in areas of the world that desperately need the help. With your support of the project through your shoe purchase, we are able to take these BIG steps together to create a healthy world where we can keep on riding.
