The Etnies Verano is listed under the men’s section of the brand. This silhouette is offered in sizes ranging from 5 to 15 with half sizes in between. The shoes have a very low profile cut which does not offer much in the way of lateral or medial support. They do not have much regarding arch support as well, but they can accommodate inserts.
Keep it cool and low-key street smart by pairing your Etnies Veranos with a logo tee, a hooded jacket, and some black joggers. You can also match your sneakers with straight-legged jeans, a tee, and a plaid shirt on top.
The Etnies Verano looks to be another classic from the famous skating brand. The shoes feature the Sole Technology Institute’s Foam Lite 1 footbed which not only adds enhanced shock protection but also make it very comfortable for the feet during extended use. Double stitching around the toe caps and ollie areas as well as leather front and side panels provide hard-wearing durability for extreme skating flips and tricks.
Etnies, a known brand that designs and produces skating and biking footwear, was launched in 1986. Now owned by pro skateboarder, Pierre André Sénizergues, the brand has taken off into the direction of producing technically-sound and functional shoes that are also stylish and comfortable. The brand uses technology produced by the Sole Technology Institute which is the world’s first organization doing biomechanical research dedicated to skateboarding.
The Etnies Verano is one such recipient of the STI technology. These sneakers expertly combine looks and function into one. The low-cut profile is perfectly set off by leather panels (front and sides) and mesh materials on the uppers. Heel pulls provide an easy on and off system, and the famous STI tech gives enhanced comfort courtesy of the insoles.
