One can barely keep up with how many awesome vegan skate shoes Etnies is coming out with. Here's yet another vegan (microfibre suede) colourway of the "Marana":
MARANA MICHELIN "navy / tan / white"
The etnies Marana is a durable cupsole with an STI Evolution Foam midsole. For durability, the upper includes a fused on, injected rubber toe cap making the Marana a tough and long-lasting shoe. For comfort and performance, it includes a padded tongue and collar, Pro Foam 1 Polyurethane insole and full-length flex grooves in the 400 NBS rubber outsole for ultimate flexibility. It also has hidden lace loops for lace protection, while the outsole features an exposed STI Evolution Foam Icon logo and a beefy tread designed to last by including both a traditional herringbone and car tire-like tread pattern.

I haven't worn or skate the Joslin shoe, but I've only heard and read good things about it. This may be (= is) one of the best skate shoes around right now. See below -->
JOSL1N "TAN / BLACK"
The Joslin Pro was built to provide Chris with a shoe that is as unstoppable as he is. The Joslin Pro features a hidden toecap below the vamp for durability and an STI Evolution Foam midsole for impact.This shoe is also stacked full of stealth technology. Down to every tiny detail, the Joslin Pro is everything he wanted in his first pro skate shoe, a clean-cut style that’s affordable, tough, long lasting.
