The Etnies Joslin Pro Shoe was built to provide Chris with a shoe that is as unstoppable as he is. The Joslin Pro features a hidden toecap below the vamp for durability and an STI Evolution Foam midsole for impact. This shoe is also stacked full of stealth technology. Down to every tiny detail, the Joslin Pro is everything he wanted in his first pro skate shoe, a clean-cut style that’s affordable, tough, long-lasting.
The size was perfect for me. I tend to switch between 12 and 13, but the size was on point. There is a lot of soft padding around the heel, meaning the shoe never slips off. After lacing them up, they weren’t too tight either.
Etnies Joslin Pro Shoes Features:
- Pro foam 1 insole
- STI evolution foam midsole
- Outsole made with Michelin performance rubber compound
- Hidden toe cap that extends into the ollie area
- U-throat holds the upper together for durability
- Elastic tongue straps for superior fit
- Well padded tongue and collar lining locks front foot in place
- Hidden lace loops and inset eyelets for lace protection
These are the first shoes I have worn with a Michelin outsole. The grip is amazing and offers a lot of padding between my foot and the floor. The whole feeling was rather stiff, but I found after wearing them a couple of times they relaxed and felt a lot more flexible.
The shape is a classic skate shoe. The toe is more pointed, rather than rounded. I was worried it would be a bulky shoe, but it’s quite slim in person.
I am a big guy, so I need a durable shoe. These can take a beating and not show any marks. I have jumped off walls and skidded on walls, and these don’t show any marks.
The Etnies Joslin has some of the best cushioning I have had in a shoe. The heel is very well protected, with the steel toe cap protecting the other end. The insole is a pretty standard affair and could be replaced by a memory foam style.
Overall, these are the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever worn. They fit perfectly and have a solid durable outsole. Finally, check out our other lifestyle reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
