Closer Look At The Etnies Marana E-Lite

By Jay Casteel  |  07/29/2014

Long-running footwear brand etnies recently rolled out the final addition of its Marana E-Lite (Blood Type E+) sneaker, completing its Marana Bloodline range.

The E-Lite is the follow-up to the Marana silhouette, originally designed and developed for pro-skater Ryan Sheckler. It features an indestructible TPR toe cap, alongside an STI Foam Lite 1 footbed and an Evolution Foam midsole that wraps around the heel for maximum stability, support and solid impact absorption. Wide elastic tongue straps were also added for superior fit, while the mesh tongue allows breathability. Finally, a grippy outsole continues the tread pattern design of the Marana that helps make it a perfect option for skateboarding.

Showcased here is Shecker's signature white/grey/red colorway, which boasts a predominately white upper with red highlights on the midsole and inner-lining, as well as grey hits on the tongue, etnies branding and outsole. A black/grey camo print completes the look on the heel.

The etnies Marana E-Lite is available now in three other colorways (black, navy/orange and red) at skate retailers and online for $85 USD.
