30 years of etnies, Legendary footprints

July 25, 2016

etnies has had the privilege of providing some of the greatest feet in skateboarding with performance footwear for the past thirty years.

The legends on etnies’ roster have continuously pushed the boundaries of what is possible on a skateboard. This has allowed etnies the opportunity to work hand in hand with some of the greatest skateboarders of all time, mutually perfecting each other’s craft. 

Together, we have experienced trials, persistence, triumph and resilience, all the while, wearing that embossed etnies icon on our feet.

A huge thank you to everyone who has been a part of this thirty year journey. Thank you to the skaters for the sacrifice and perseverance that went into every clip and each photograph. Thank you to the photographers for your diligence, patience and lying in countless ditches for hours on end to get that one shot. Thank you to all the magazines that helped us track down the etnies archives.
