etnies x Kevin Smith SMeaker

22 July 2011, 20.30 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

As the Comic-Con 2011 festivities began yesterday, Kevin Smith and etnies held a private launch party for 150 fans at the El Dorado Cocktail Lounge in San Diego to celebrate the etnies x Kevin Smith collaboration shoes, called the SMEAKER, designed with inspiration from Kevin’s famous SModcast. This VIP event included a live taping of his popular podcast, SModcast, with long-time film associate and co-host Scott Mosier.

The SModcast “Have a Week” and  “Forgeticus!” signature quotes stitched on the heel and the side heel panel of the shoe, matching the SMEAKER logo on the tongue, and a black and white photo of Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier on the footbeds on a black etnies Jameson 2.5 SMEAKER.

etnies’ Public Domaine in Paris

I strongly recommend getting your ass to Paris by August 7 to see the amazing exhibition etnies has put together there. From Natas’ animated graphics to Manzoori’s video to Yogi’s works to the controversial board graphics to the fully skateable PAS house—this is the best collection of skateboard art I have ever seen. I was lucky enough to get a tour from Pierre-Andre, Manzoori, and Yogi themselves. Check out the video and photos here.
