To commemorate this year’s X-Games in L.A., etnies has created a new limited-edition colorway for the Marana (Ryan Sheckler’s signature style). This bold red-and-black combo looks even more street-savvy thanks to the addition of a gold foil etnies symbol and just a small dose of black patent to round it all out.

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.

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:

The Etnies Rainforest is Alive!


Over a month ago, we featured the story of the etnies Buy a Shoe, Plant a Tree program, and earlier this month,  the etnies Team Riders, the Maleku tribe and La Reserva Forest Foundation planted the very first 150 trees of the etnies Rainforest in northern Costa Rica.

With shovels in hand, Pierre-André Senizergues (CEO and owner of etnies), Alfredo Acosta Blanco of the Maleku, Roberta Ward Smiley (co-founder of La Reserva) and etnies' pro riders Ryan Sheckler, Kyle Leeper, Chris Del Moro, CJ Kanuha and Benji Weatherly, planted these first trees in what will become the etnies Rainforest on the Maleku reserve.

"The name “etnies” comes from the word tribe. For etnies to have the opportunity to unite with the passionate people of the Maleku tribe and La Reserva on this very important reforestation project is one of my proudest moments in etnies' 25 year history," said Pierre-AndréSenizergues.

With all the ongoing support behind the Buy a Shoe, Plant a Tree Project, etnies is on track to planting over 35,000 trees beyond this first tree-planting ceremony. You can still do your part by purchasing a pair (or a few!) of the eco-friendly etnies Jameson 2 sneakers. Remember, for every pair sold, etnies will plant one tree, that’s one more tree to help towards rebuilding the ravaged rainforest community of the Maleku tribe of Costa Rica. Now, that’s what we call a win-win situation!
