Another great collaboration coming from Vans this Spring 2009 season, is with artist Dennis McNett. They worked on the AV3, TNT 4 and the J-Lay. Dennis’ incredible lino-cut art is strikingly reproduced with laser etching on premium full grain leather and tonal screen printing on high-grade canvas. The package is completed with three tee shirts that feature Dennis’ signature carved fury.

Look out for the Vans x Dennis McNett Pack at selected retailers in the near future.

Etnies and Electronic Arts Inc. have worked together to bring the etnies GvR skateboarding contest to the Skate 2 video game, and to create an etnies Skate 2 RVM shoe for real world skateboarding. The etnies RVM Skate 2 shoe will be available when the game hits stores late January 2009 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Drawing inspiration from etnies skate heritage, the RVM features the classic etnies Rap styling with a slimmed down mid-top silhouette on a vulcanized outsole and a tonal Skate 2 logo on the outer heel. The RVM also features STI System G2 gel in the heel of the outsole to absorb shock and prevent heel bruises. The shoe will be sold at Zumiez in the United States, and it will be available at select retailers internationally.
