When Ryan Sheckler speaks, his fans listen. That’s why when the 22-year-old pro skater sang the praises of the new etnies prototype shoe he’d been rocking, skaters from all over took to social media to show their unwavering desire to get their hands on the same pair!
This isn’t just some well thought out marketing hype concocted by etnies, mind you. The Marana (named after the street where Sheckler lives) is legit. The real deal. It's been tried and tested by Sheckler himself, and the verdict is: it’s hands down the “longest-lasting shoe he’s ever skated”. With a big name like Ryan Scheckler organically brewing up so much hype over the “most comfortable model he has ever had”, it’s no surprise the Marana became so in demand --to the point where etnies decided to launch the model a whole year early!
Now you can get your hands on the etnies Marana to see what all the well-deserved hype is all about!
See what Ryan Sheckler himself has to say about the etnies Marana in the video below:
Penny founder Ben Mackay received his first plastic skateboard when he was 5-years old. "I got my board second hand and painted it blue with gold pinstripes. I thought it was the baddest thing ever." Nearly 30 years later, he realized it was time to bring that little plastic board back for good.
With 12 years experience in skateboard manufacturing, Mackay and the rest of the Penny crew has a strong appreciation for what it takes to make great quality skateboards. "I've channeled everything I've learned in manufacturing and design to come up with a high performance, long lasting, and mega fun plastic skateboard," says Mackay. From looking at any skateboard you can see whether its fundamentals are balanced. You can see it as each component comes together to make the final product and you can feel it under your feet and in your hands. And it's what sets Penny Skateboards above the rest.
Each Penny Skateboard is built with the highest quality raw materials and fanatical attention to detail. Penny Skateboards are designed and built to look good, perform well, and exceed all your expectations. Penny Skateboards - since forever.
