French skateboard Olympian Aurelien Giraud drops his first pro model shoe with Etnies, dubbed The Aurelien. Designed and tested by the Frenchmen, The Aurelien was made to meet the high impact and sends Giraud is known for and all of skateboarding’s aspects. Some of the key features of the shoe include:

  • STI Performance Level 1 insole
  • System Flo2 to provide airflow around the foot
  • Hidden toe cap and lace loops to extend the shoe’s life
  • Elastic tongue straps for superior fit
  • 400NBS rubber outsole for grip and board feel
  • Padded tongue and collar lining to lock your foot in
  • launching in three colorways, grey/light grey, tan/white, and in a classic black/white

“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 is both thin enough to feel the board, and dense enough for all my big impacts. It’s a perfect combination,” said Aurelien. “Each piece in the AG Collection is something that totally fits my lifestyle. You’ll see that we were sure to include a reminder of my town Lyon with Lion details everywhere.” – Aurelien Giraud.
