Etnies Fader LS is a classic skate shoe and available in a vegan colorway for the first time in awhile! The black canvas upper features reinforced stitching around the ollie areas to give a little more life. The tongue is lightly padded to keep those feet feeling good and the collar has a nice cut to keep those ankles free.
Etnies gum cupsoles provide some great durability and support and if they’re anything like the our review pair of the Marana you’ll get some excellent skate life!

Great looking shoes. Bought a pair but in grey version. Just waiting for them to arrive.
I am a bit confused. On the Etnies site, they are not listed as vegan shoes… Is there any leather used in them or not?
they’re often a little late to adding shoes into the vegan list. These are good to go.
I’m afraid when the shoes arrived there was indeed a little bit of leather on the upper. This was not indicated on their website. Returned thee shoes to the store a few days later. Gutted!
I’ll have to investigate this a bit further. Did the shoes have the same model number as on the site? Item code: 4101000416/964
The other potential issue is factory specs. A few years back Emerica has a pair of Hsu Mids that contradicted the specs on the box. My apologies. I’ll update the link and let you know what I find.
Mr Fakie the ones you posted are vegan for sure. So no need to amend your site.
The ones I bought were light grey Faders which were advertised as vegan. Alas when they arrived it was clear they weren’t 100% vegan.
Cool, thanks for the heads up on that. I wasn’t 100% sure. But just to clarify, this was the message from Etnies.
Thank you for supporting Etnies!
The Fader Ls in canvas is an animal free Fader and is Vegan friendly. All parts used to make the Fader in canvas are synthetic.

Guys, here’s a link to the shoes I bought. It states “imitation leather” but when the shoes arrive it had the leather symbol on the inside label. https://www.zalando.co.uk/etnies-fader-ls-skater-shoes-grey-et112a030-c11.html
