Pierre Andre Senizergue, a former professional skateboarder, established Etnies in the 1980s. He was also the man behind Emerica and eS footwear. Initially, the brand was named “Etnics,” however, because of legal issues, it was changed to Etnies in 1989. Since its inception, the brand proceeds to lead and be inspired by action sports. One of its functional, quality and eye-appealing footwear is the Etnies Jefferson Mid. 

Depending on the colorway, the Etnies Jefferson Mid comes with a leather or suede upper. With a low-profile cupsole construction, it has an especially-shaped to box that enhances the slipper-like fit and increases board flick. Depending on when it was released, some variations have microfleece insulated lining, while others don’t, which keeps the foot warm.

This mid-top lace-up skate shoe is equipped with the DTTF footbed that gives maximum board control and feel. Its rubber outsole has a reverse lug tread pattern that delivers a superior grip.
