Introducing the Winterized Collection by Etnies

These styles have been WINTERIZED. And we’re not just talking waterproof. We’re talking about a true winter shoe that has been completely overhauled & re-tread. This all-terrain collection has been modified to combat the brutal elements of winter. The outsole is made from a pure gum compound with a particularly low freezing rate and a protruding reverse lug tread pattern for maximum traction on snow and ice. The entire upper is treated with a water-repellent guard, the liner is made with insulated, quick dry material, and a gusseted tongue keeps the snow, puddles and mud from sneaking in your shoe.
