Etnies was founded by pro skateboarder Pierre-Andre Senizergues and have been a leading figure in the skateboarding and now the casual footwear market. To at the forefront is not an easy feat but with a new PAS Collection titled Sixth Element, Etnies have expanded into a new forum less traveled. The Sixth Element have just dropped at Beam's store in Tokyo so get down to the shop before these become history.
This collection celebrates the ever growing family of skateboarders who are turning to fatherhood and allows for a creation of a special bond between father and son. A new concept to launch 3 adult styles packaged with complimentary 3 toddler styles that all tell a story about the various stages Pierre-Andre has encountered in life.
Revolution is a model that combines the French and American heritage by using the recognizable red, white and blue colors. Refection is the second stage that puts a focus on the son's skateboarding future that reflects the father's past. And lastly the Evolution depicts the father's skateboarding life with the aged leather against the soft nubuck material representing a fresh outlook of the son.
