Review: etnies Scout
For the past 3Â years my everyday uniform is mixing tailored piecesÂ with sportswear. The etnies ScoutÂ fuses theÂ aesthetic of aÂ modern designer sneakers with functionally of a skateboard shoes. As the temperature drops, I’ve switch up my canvas Jack Purcell for something more durable and weather resistant. The scout is constructedÂ with a fully-lined abrasion-resistant mesh body with an elastic heel support. The lightweight constructionÂ forms to your feet without feeling restrictive.Â For the past 2 weeks, it has been my go to shoes for runningÂ errands, commuting to work, and some light hike in Deep Cove. TheÂ STI Evolution Foam midsole & outsole combo is extremely comfortable andÂ responsive with good arch support while running.
The Fall / Winter collectionÂ released brand new colour ways,Â prints and speckled soles. I’ve opt for the darkÂ navy colour wayÂ with bright blue rope laces and speckled grey soles which add a pop of premium styling. It looks great dress up or down with shorts, jeans and chinos.
The Scout isÂ part of etniesâ€™ Buy a Shoe, Plant a TreeÂ initiative. It’s a reforestation project to help rebuild Sao Paolo, Brazil’sÂ Rainforest. In partnership with non-profit organization Trees for the Future, etnies will plant a tree for each pair of Scout‘s purchased.Â Since its inception in 2011, etnies has planted over 794,000 trees.
With an affordable price tag and sleek design, the Scout will be a hit this Fall season. Pick upÂ a pair atÂ etines.com.
