etnies dropped the new Scout sneaker in select retailers today, and it's completely different form anything etnies has ever done before.
I was able to preview this shoe at Agenda when I sat down and interviewed the owner of etnies – Pierre Andre Senizergues (look for the full interview coming to N-SB soon). The shoe is very lightweight and is flexible enough to wrap into almost a complete circle – you can even wring it out like a rag after surfing / chilling at the beach.
I was also able to try a few of the samples on and noticed how comfortable they felt. While providing your feet and toes some protection from the elements, the shoe is almost as weightless as the air it breathes. Its thin, all-mesh upper lets air in and out keeping feet cool while kicking moisture out. This breathability combined with the STI Evolution Foam outsole makes this shoe perfect for that beer run on your Zip-Zinger, heading to the beach, or having something comfy to wear after a skate session.
Instead of being die-cut from a sheet, STI Evolution Foam™ midsoles and outsoles are made by a special molding process, producing no waste.
The etnies Scout is an addition to the Buy A Shoe Plant A Tree initiative, where for every pair of shoes sold a tree is planted with the Trees for The Future Foundation in Brazil. For more info, visit: Etnies.com/buyashoeplantatree
A full retailer list can be found on @etnies instagram now, and the complete line offering additional colorways will land this October.
