etnies owner Pierre-Andre Senizergues along with the etnies team met up in L.A.’s Mission for the annual Easter event this past Friday and handed out 2,000 pairs of shoes to the homeless. etnies has been donating shoes for the past 14 years, but this year was different. Pierre worked with filmmaker Mike Manzoori to film and interview different people throughout the event, capturing this unique look into the generosity of a skate shoe.
Vans Syndicate is putting on a photo show highlighting and celebrating twenty years of their killer Half Cab shoe. The show, titled Twenty, will feature photographs from some of skateboardings best photographers, all snapping photos of the best skateboarders wearing the shoe. Photographers include work from many, including Skatedaily’s Bryce Kanights, the well known and much respected skateboard photographer. Lance Dawes will be curating the show, fuck yeah.
The show will be held at the New Image Art in Los Angeles on Saturday April 14th from 6pm to 9pm.
