The etnies MC Rap is Back!

etnies MC Rap High

Return of an Iconic Shoe

The etnies MC RAP Hi is one of etnies most timeless silhouettes - this shoe changed the footwear game in the early ‘90s. The MC RAP eliminated the bulky rubber ollie pads from shoes that preceded it and was a lot sleeker while maintaining its functionality. Once released, the shoes became an instant hit with many top pros skating at that time.

In addition to being popular with skaters, the RAP permeated the music, art, and celebrity scenes, which in turn projected skate culture into the lifestyle world. In 2023, 30 years after its initial release, we are excited to see etnies bring back one of their most requested classics.

Here's a look at the original from 1993.
