Wanted: Ryan Sheckler’s etnies Marana

In the world of skate shoes, flash is starting to take over for durability. But one skater who didn’t board the glitz train is pro skater and X Games gold medalist Ryan Sheckler, who claims that he’s tired of ripping through his skate shoes. One shoe he is psyched on, however, is his new etnies Marana, a shoe he claims, “doesn’t rip and doesn’t wear down,” according to a release. With a fused-on injected rubber toe cap to prevent wear, a lightweight and impact-resistant STIEvolution Foam midsole that doesn’t pack out and provides extra cushion, and deep-set Herringbone treads that don’t wear down, these Maranas are built for battle. The Maranas also feature a signature Sheckler colorway and a custom “RS” initial stamp on the footbed. Whether you’re skating street, stairs, pipe, or airs, the Marana is designed to handle it all. If there’s only room for one shoe in your skate closet this year, the Marana has you covered. MSRP $74.99 –Kade Krichko
