Yesterday, etnies released its new Scout shoe early at Active Ride Shop and other select retailers across the US and Europe. Due to extensive retailer demand, etnies shipped the Scout out ahead of its planned Spring '14 launch.
Part of the STI Evolution Foam Collection, the Scout features a thin, all-mesh upper that lets air in and out, keeping the foot cool while wicking away moisture. A performance Ortholite insole provides comfort and the lining allows the wearer to go sockless. The Rap Bar and elastic heel band enhance support, comfort and versatility.
The Scout is also an addition to etnies Buy A Shoe Plant A Tree initiative, where for every pair of shoes sold, a tree is planted with the Trees For The Future Foundation in Brazil.
