Fit & Sizing

In US sizing, men and women can order a pair of the low-top Etnies Scout Yarn Bomb. Women's sizes start from 5 to 11. Males could have theirs from 5 to 15. Some suggested to add one size up as it runs too small. A regular lace-up closure is used to offer an adjustable fit. It has a knit and mesh upper with padded collars that deliver optimal comfort and a sock-like fit.

The Scout Yarm Bomb from Etnies features a mix of two upper materials. The toe area up to the tongue is made up of knitted yarn while the lateral sides up to the heel are composed of mesh.
