etnies recently unveiled its newest and lightest footwear style to date, the Highlight, to a select group of editors including representatives from Highsnobiety at a private skateboard facility in Portland, Oregon. Championed by marquee etnies pro Tyler Bledsoe, the etnies Highlight is being heralded as the brand’s lightest, most flexible shoe model ever—replacing standard rubber construction with etnies’ trademarked Evolution Foam in the design of the shoe’s footbed, midsole, and outsole giving it an ultra light feel and out-of-the-box flexibility coupled with complete skate performance durability. The shoe also features a full synthetic upper and an inner sock booty for added fit and comfort. The etnies Highlight is currently available at skate shops globally.
