Nanjing, Xi’an and Changsha, China featuring Chris Joslin, Nick Garcia, Ryan Lay, Barney Page, and Trevor McClung.
After a 14-hour flight over the Pacific en route to China, the etnies team finally arrived in Nanjing to meet their trusty guides. The crew immediately embarked upon the streets to skate China’s infamous marble landscape in skate spot heaven. The days were filled with jam-packed demos (thanks to the locals!), dodging the rain, Chinese food every night, meat markets, sightseeing Xi’an’s Terracotta Army and tuk tuks whisking us from to and fro. At the end of the day, nobody dared to try the chicken feet, but Barney did, unsurprisingly, lose his phone. Watch the 15-minute video as it takes you on the team’s journey through China!
Sheep makes its return debut, this time herded by etnies! Originally created in 1996 as a fun & animal-friendly brand, Sheep shoes quickly created a cult following of talented skateboarders, artists, and vegans around the world. The etnies Sheep capsule is 100% vegan and animal-friendly, made with all synthetic materials featuring the Jameson Vulc LS.
With a hidden toe cap beneath the vamp for durability and an STI Evolution Foam midsole for impact resistance, Chris Joslin’s first pro model shoe is packed full of stealth technology including every component he wanted in an ideal skate shoe. With a long-lasting, grippy outsole made from a Michelin tire rubber compound, the Joslin Pro provides unmatched durability, precision, enhanced adherence with maximum flexibility for a superior board feel.
CCS had team rider Ryan Lay in town last month and they couldn’t just let him leave with out crushing 100 of something. Nollie flips was the trick and the shoe was Ryan’s color way of the Etnies Jameson Vulc. After 100 flicks all over Portland Ryan proved that you can make one hell of a durable vegan shoe. Pick up a pair of these vegan skate shoes today at CCS!
