Emil Johansson's signature colorway for the Etnies Jameson Mid Crank MTB shoe


Emil Johansson has been dominating the Crankworx slopestyle events worldwide since he won his first Joyride at Crankworx Whistler in 2019. Etnies has just released a signature colorway of their Jameson Mid Crank MTB shoe in partnership with Emil Johansson and it looks slick.



The Jameson Mid Crank shoe had direct design input by mountain bike legend Brandon Semenuk and is said to be versatile in it’s usage from slopestyle to downhill and trail riding.



The Geo-Hex tread pattern and Etnies Formula G rubber is combined to be a claimed 2x more grippy than standard rubber and is designed to provide a specific grip for all-around riding.



The shoe also features an asymmetric collar for ankle protection, a strobel board for midsole stiffness, and TPU underlay on vamp for reinforced fit.



Emil brings a bit of his stylish riding into this new shoe with a sleek grey/tan colorway. Just like with his bikes, Emil’s shoes have got to be some of the best looking pairs out there.
