Designed and tested by Aaron Ross, the Etnies Number Mid is exactly what he was looking for in a BMX shoe – a cupsole with a grippy outsole featuring System G2 in the heel and STI Foam Lite level 1 cushioning footbed for support. This BMX-specific outsole features a herringbone tread pattern designed to grip pedals, but also releases when needed without tearing. A dense EVA shank in the arch provides extra protection from the pedals without sacrificing pedal feel, while softer EVA on the toe and heel provide extra flexibility and comfort. The etnies Number Mid also features a removable strap for stability and style. Wow! That's a lot of features and style in one shoe. - Padded tongue and mid-top collar. - Removable strap for stability. - Lower hidden lace loops. - Triple-stitched toe cap. - Internal dual-density EVA midsole. - STI Foam Lite level 1 footbed. - 400 NBS rubber outsole.
