Etnies, the well-known footwear brand, has just announced the release of a new pro model shoe designed specifically for MTB slopestyle riding. The new shoe is called the Johansson Pro MTB and was created in collaboration with professional MTB rider Emil Johansson.
The Johansson Pro MTB shoe has been designed to meet the specific demands of high-speed, technical MTB slopestyle riding, as showcased in a new video entitled "Empty Your Mind," which features Johansson testing out his new shoe on a set of New Zealand jumps. The video was filmed and edited by the crew at Hunt Cinema.
According to Johansson, he has been keeping a list of features he needs in a shoe since he was a kid, and the new Johansson Pro MTB shoe has all of his favorite features, as well as some new additions. Johansson describes the shoe as "comfy" and suitable for everyday life as well as for riding.
The Johansson Pro MTB shoe is now available for purchase on the etnies website, so if you're an MTB rider looking for a high-performance shoe that can handle the toughest terrain, this might just be the shoe for you.
