Here in the Pacific Northwest, we feel that function is, was and always will be a necessity. Lets face it, we aren’t exactly the driest climate on Earth, and though we do love our Authentics’ and our Lunarlon, sometimes we have to focus on the weather at hand: Rain. A whole lot of rain. It bothers a whole lot of people. So why endure 9 months of rain with soggy feet? Just thinking about that makes me mad. There is probably a direct correlation between happiness and having dry feet in the winter. That is why having waterproof shoes is so important. Wet socks are as appealing as the Flu, and probably a cause of it in some cases.
The Etnies High Rise LX Shoes are a perfect example of when form and function hug it out and make a baby. A functional shoe baby with fashion sense. Fantastic. The urban savvy aesthetic pairs well with rugged accents and classic Etnies branding. All of which disguise the incredible comfort and durability of STI Evolution Foam alongside waterproof features. In a nutshell, there is little to dispute. In design, form follows function, and a truly great product, like the High Rise LX, will execute both. When there is confusion, you end up with repeating patterns and crazy make’m’ups… Like Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber. They are one in the same. Everybody knows that.
Enough already. I’m just trying to illustrate a point. Check out the product video below and pick up a pair of Etnies High Rise LX Shoes here.
