Check Out: Shoes, Winter Riding Solutions, & More - January 2019
I went out on a limb and got myself a pair of the Etnies for Christmas (the black ones, no way I'd pull off the white ones!), and I have to say I actually like them in DH and trail contexts. They feel nice and firm under foot, offer a reasonable amount of grip with the right pedals underneath, and the reinforcement on the inner side of the shoe is a nice touch. I don't think they'll be as robust as my previous FiveTens that lasted me 6 years (they shouldn't have, but shoes are expensive these days...), but I half expected to go for one trial ride with the Etnies and end up returning them disappointed; instead I'll be riding these on the downhills and the trails until they wear out – which will be interesting to see the longevity, but still. They cop a lot of flack on the internet, but underrated shoes IMO.

Behind the Scenes with G-Form
I use them for DH as well as trail, it's so much nicer riding with these than storm-trooper armour. They've seen some pretty decent impacts in their 4 year lifetime as well. I'm pretty convinced that if you're going to have a proper, I mean PROPER crash that will hurt your knees, there's not a pad that will prevent a serious injury – happy to be proven wrong on this.
