If you follow etnies on Instagram and such, you may have noticed a noticeable push for the Marana shoe lately. I noticed, so I hit up Povah for more info. Before everyone freaks out and gets all BMX jihad, The Marana is aligned with Ryan Sheckler (red version only). He is a heartthrob, so it’s all good. If you can’t get ass in these, you might as well just wear these everywhere. Even Chase Hawk is a fan.
For real though, they look good.

The etnies Marana technology breakdown:
STI Evolution Foam™ – The innovatively crafted STI Evolution Foam™ molded midsoles in the Marana replaces your typical EVA, PU and heavy rubber with a durable, abrasion-resistant, ultra-lightweight and high-impact rebound cushioning foam. Its molecular build is resistant to abrasion and has a high-impact rebound quality so it won’t pack out when landing hard. Plus, STI Evolution Foam™ enhances the cushioning and comfort of the footbed and noticeably decreases the weight of the shoe.
Non-Slip Grip Outsole – Created with a thick herringbone tread with deep grooves, the Marana outsole has an insane grip and just doesn’t wear down with all the abuse skateboarding puts it through.
Injected Rubber Toe Cap – The Marana toe cap is fused-on with injected rubber and has no stitching making it super hard to wear through, no matter what your skate style is.
Available now for US$75 (€80 / £60), the Marana comes in red/white and an all-black color. The new performance shoe can be found at etnies.com and etnies retailers around the globe.
