In 2001, Analog™ was born in a style lab with the primary goal of creating unique designs that fell outside the lines of traditionalism. With an eclectic mix of team riders, styles, and inspirations, Analog approached snowboarding with fearlessness. This passion paved the way for Analog to make its mark on year-round apparel and accessories in 2003, starting with skate and moving into surf shortly thereafter.
In November of 2012, Analog transitioned back to a snowboard-specific brand and has continued to Liberate, Unify, Mobilize, and Resolve. Free from the tides of conformity, they remain dedicated to delivering a creative voice of expression. Transformed into a community driven against the predictable, Analog is committed to progressing the individualistic and fearless thread that binds them together as “Snowboarding".

Project CANVAS was founded upon the principal that within every person lies a wealth of creativity. It’s a project that set out to empower youth and young adults across the world to believe in themselves. People are inspired by Project CANVAS to treat life as a canvas upon which they have the power to create their own masterpiece.
Every Project CANVAS pair of shoes is one-of-a kind, decorated with abstract versions of the three basic primary colors: Blue, Yellow, and Red. The three basic color platform provides a foundation for self-expression, individuality, and creativity.
The Project CANVAS concept is a vibrant, yet simplistic aesthetic that serves as a base for art, culture, and fashion to be expressed in a unique format accessible to all.

Here at Zappos, we’ve been making daily strides to become a more eco-conscious company as we get ready for the big move to our new Downtown Las Vegas headquarters this fall. So when we see other companies make real efforts towards becoming more sustainable, we naturally take notice!
Recently, Sole Technology, manufacturers of three of our Rideshop brands, etnies, Emerica and thirtytwo, made a huge leap for its commitment to the environment by unveiling their new eco-friendly European headquarters building in Amsterdam. Sole Technology believes that this new sustainably-designed building will make a dramatic impact in lightening the company’s overall carbon footprint.
The company is definitely committed to accomplish their goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2020. Sole Technology’s founder and owner Pierre-Andre Senizergues’ passion for the environment is the main force behind the company’s sustainability initiatives and guided the criteria for the design of the building.
Because of all their efforts, the new Sole Technology building’s energy consumption is said to be up to 60% less than that of comparable buildings! Now that’s a change we can get behind.
Way to go Sole Technology!
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.
