With three decades of skateboarding under his feet, plenty of killer video parts and a skate style that remains relevant over the years, Cairo Foster is timeless and deserves a shoe style to match. The etnies Gilman, Cairo’s new signature model, lends a certain style and sophistication that reflects the skater he is. Designed, tested and approved by Cairo, the Gilman is available now at skate shops around the world and on etnies.com, along with a full Cairo photo gallery.
"I'm hyped to have etnies back me on the process of designing this shoe and getting it out there for the peeps to roll on,” said Cairo Foster. “My favorite features are the hidden seam on the toecap, which provides a unique look reminiscent of an old-school toe box without the downfall of instant blowouts, and that it has a cupsole. There aren't a lot of skate shoe options besides vulc, but with the DTTF footbed you can feel the board while the insoles we're using keep your paws sorted from the abuses of skateboarding."
Cairo Foster’s signature model, the etnies Gilman, is available in Navy, Grey and Black on etnies.com; $75
The Gilman comes stocked with high performance skate features, including a sophisticated cupsole with a clean and stylish upper, an outsole with flex grooves and a double-stitched toe cap and ollie area. It also has a DTTF (dropped-to-the-floor) Pro 2 footbed which provides optimal board feel, control and cushioning. Cairo’s signature model is available in navy, grey and black for $75 on etnies.com and at core skate shops globally.
