Etnies and Plan B have had ties since the early 90s. They have once again joined forces to release a series of Etnies X Plan B shoes for you guys to get your hands on. The first of 3 they have decided to go with are the Scout’s. If you’ve not already seen or more importantly held them they are an extremely lightweight durable shoe. Probably not the best for skating but for chilling, running and day to day life they are perfect.
The second out the 3 is the Marana. Now this is a shoe worth skating in. It’s exactly the same as previous Marana’s except they have replaced the Etnies logo on the side of the shoe with a Plan B logo. I would say it works really well. Sometimes when shoes do a collaboration with another company whether it being a board company or not, it always seems to be quite obvious and in your face. This is quite subtle and works really well. Etnies have also kept the colours quite simple and the material it’s made from will be perfect for a winter skate shoe.
Finally saving the best till last we’ve got the Marana E-lite. This is pretty much just an upgraded version of the Marana costing a little bit more. If your into your tech items then these will be perfect otherwise I would just recommend the standard Marana’s. Either way they’re both amazing skate shoes. The difference between the 2 is the E-lite has an increase in technology, durability and design.
All 3 shoes seem to be a favorite of Ryan Sheckler’s so I’m guessing this is the reason why they have decided to use these shoes in the collab. Also seems right as Sheckler is pro for both companies. Plan B are also dropping a new video called ‘True’ so this release fits in with the release of the the video. Keep your eyes peeled as it’s supposed to one to remember featuring sections from Plan B’s finest Danny Way, Ryan Sheckler, Pat Duffy, PJ Ladd, Felipe Gustavo and many more…. Have look below at the trailer to get you hyped on this mint collab and also an epic video to come….
