The Etnies Jameson MTW is solely offered in men’s sizes ranging from US 5 to 14. Ladies who want to cop a pair should go 1.5 sizes down from their standard shoe size. Some wearers have said that the shoe felt smaller than their normal shoe size hence going half a size up is recommended.
Dressed in a classic skate design, the Etnies Jameson MTW displays a simple aesthetic with a sleek silhouette. This fusion of simplicity and sleekness offer excellent versatility and sophisticated appeal that could be dressed up and down. Wearers like to pair this sneaker with casual staples such as jeans, joggers, and shorts while some chose to dress it up by matching it with chinos and khakis.
Aside from its appealing style, consumers were attracted to this sneaker because of its convenience and functionality for the winter season. The STI Repel weatherproofing applied on the upper combined with the gusseted tongue provides excellent protection against the elements. The Foam Lite 1 insoles and insulated quick-dry lining provide in-step comfort and warmth. Lastly, its cupsole construction offers excellent board feel, and the reverse geo-hex lug tread help avoid slippage.
Etnies was launched in 1986 and was once an emerging skate footwear brand from France. Years later a pro skateboarder named Pierre André acquired Etnies and became its owner and CEO. The brand was then introduced to the US market and is currently based in Lake Forest, California. Today, it is a subsidiary of a larger company called the Sole Technology Inc., which is also owned by Pierre.
The brand has expanded its product lineup from just footwear also to include apparel and accessories for both men and women. One of their many footwear collections is called the Jameson Bloodline, which was born to provide skateboarders with kicks that value simplicity without compromising functionality and performance. A sneaker model that belongs to this collection is the Etnies Jameson MTW, a weatherized shoe that's fully equipped to protect the wearer's feet from the elements during cold and wet seasons.
