Etnies is known as the first ever skate-shoe company owned by skateboarders and its reputation for quality and look follows. That being said, Etnies is bringing back the Rap model in 2009 and it looks like its going to be pretty solid. They added several technical upgrades including vulcanized soles alongside mid/low cut models so you can really switch up the style and push the limits. The addition of special shock absorbing systems also makes it a must by for those who wear down their shoes. Definitely get after a pair.
