The original Marana was an incredibly durable shoe, but contrary to most skate shoes, the upper was so long-lasting that the rubber outsole could not keep up.
In an effort to continuously improve the most durable skateboarding footwear on the market, Etnies joined forces with one of the world's top manufacturers of premium rubber to translate the performance and durability of Michelin tyres to the outsole of a shoe.
"The Michelin Marana saved my life. I swear the tire rubber compound helped with heel bruises. I got none when they should've exploded!" - Chris Joslin
