Good news! SKUs are not required for order syncing to work. And if you do have SKUs, Athlete will use them. When Athlete syncs an order to Shopify, it looks for SKUs on the Etsy listings and matches them to Shopify products. When this match is found, the items on that Shopify order are linked to your Shopify products. When this match is not found, the Shopify order is loaded but the items on that order are not linked to Shopify products. This means these orders can't update inventory, and may not work with other integrations such as dropshipping apps. To resolve this, you should update the product to have matching SKUs on both marketplaces. Subsequent orders for that Etsy listing will then be successfully linked to the Shopify product.
