Etnies Marana slip XLT (vegan suede slip-on)


Apart from vegan colourways of the "classic" Etnies Marana (with the Michelin outsole), Etnies now also offers vegan colourways of a slip-on version of the Marana, which also include really durable vegan microfibre suede.

Note that only some of the colourways are vegan (see the ones below as well as some with an all-canvas upper). The colourways below (look at the exact name and combination of colours) should always be vegan. Many of the other colourways are NON-vegan though (i.e. they have real animal-source suede = made from slaughtered animals, pigs usually). 

The "Marana slip XLT" also have a Michelin outsole. XLT as in extra light (reminiscent, in name, not in its look, of a Vans Geoff Rowley XLT, a vegan shoe from 2001, back when Geoff Rowley was vegan.)

Says the Ethnies website: "A brand new slip-on by etnies that has Michelin tread pattern inspired by the Marana. A double wrapped vulcanized shoe with foxing tape. Extra thick "Drop to the Floor" Pro Foam 2 PU insole with an evertoe rubber toe cap for durability. It has a force shield reinforced upper with a rubber heel wrap for support. Goring construction for easy slip and secure fit. [No idea what "Goring construction" is.]

  • Evertoe rubber toe cap for durability
  • Rubber heel wrap for support
  • Force Shield reinforced upper
  • Goring construction for easy slip and secure fit

Note: This shoe has an all-suede (vegan suede!) upper, no canvas in the mid section. Not necessarily good or bad, just saying.

Note: This shoe has (super tough) canvas in the mid section and towards the heel. Not necessarily good or bad, just saying. I personally like a bit of (super tough) canvas.


Note: There are other vegan colourways of the "Marana slip XLT", which have an all canvas upper. Check the vegan collection on the Etnies website. The Etnies website will always just show the latest models (although older models are often still available all over the internet) and whatever it shows you will vary depending on where in the world you are.
