Aurelien Giraud is setting new standards with his debut Etnies pro model shoe, “THE AURELIEN.” Created for high-impact skateboarding, these shoes feature the iconic etnies “E” logo, STI Performance Level 1 insole for cushioning, System Flo2 for breathability, and a hidden toe cap for durability. Elastic tongue straps ensure a perfect fit, while discreet lace loops and a 400NBS rubber outsole provide grip and board feel. Comfort is prioritized with a padded tongue and collar lining for a secure ride.
Aurélien Giraud expressed his pride in the collaboration, stating, “I’m super proud of my new etnies pro shoes! We worked hard on the design to create a performance skate shoe that looks great to wear all the time. The cushioning insole and grippy outsole are both thin enough to feel the board and dense enough for all my big impacts. It’s a perfect combination.”
Incorporating Lion details as a nod to his hometown Lyon, Giraud’s “THE AURELIEN” seamlessly merges style and functionality. With Giraud’s innovative vision and etnies’ reputation for quality, “THE AURELIEN” is designed to cater to the demands of heavy skateboarding.
