Size and fit

The Etnies Jameson Vulc is available in men’s and women’s versions. The men’s silhouettes are offered in sizes ranging from 5 to 14 while the women’s iterations are available in measurements ranging from 5 to 11. The shoes have a low vamp, and the tongues are small so make sure to keep laces securely tied to keep them on the feet. The shoes run small according to several reviews.

Buyers who would like to purchase a colorway available only for the opposite gender should keep in mind that men’s and women’s shoes have a size difference of 1.5. A 7 in women would only be a 5.5 in men’s while a 9 in men would be equivalent to 10.5 in women.

Etnies Jameson Vulc Style

True streetwear is pretty simple. Hoodies, sweatshirts, and tees make up the bulk of skater tops. Logos and statements make each pretty distinct and let your personality shine through. Pair any of these tops with either straight-legged jeans or cargo pants. For days when you won’t be riding all day, luxe your trousers up a tad for a smooth change from sport to lifestyle.

Notable Features

The Etnies Jameson Vulc are minimalist and stripped down skate shoes in an era where most skating footwear have bulked up. The sneakers’ charm lies in their simplicity, yet their performance is nothing to be dismissed. The shoes provide excellent board feel by keeping the vamp closer to the feet. The famous RCT tread pattern keeps the soles grippy, and the STI Foam Lite insoles keep feet happy and comfy.
