Etnies Scout is a breakthrough etnies model, one of the best and most comfortable shoes in the world. It was created for surfers, and no one else but Mason Ho himself was involved in its designing. Mason Ho was born in Hawaii in surfers family, and his father, Mike Ho, is a surfing legend. Mason's uncle, Derek, is the first Hawaiian origin master of ATP Series. Besides of the love for surfing, the same shark tattoo, treated as a kind of amulet, links him with his father. Mason has his promodel in a Scout dark blue version. The shoe weight is minimized thanks to the use of STI Evolution foam, which is used by Sole Techn in ultra-light soles in Thirty Two shoes. Inner lining is sewn, and the outer material is made of quick-drying mesh. Scout is a favorite model of the whole etnies team, Ryan Sheckler and Hawk also have its promodels. Scout is a part of the Buy a Shoe program - Plant a Tree, which aim is a re-afforestation of the Brazilian rainforest.
