Introducing the Etnies Marana X Hook-ups Collaboration shoe!


Jeremy Klein rose to skateboard fame as a promising ripper for Steve Rocco’s World Industries company. He then moved over to Birdhouse skateboards spear headed by Tony Hawk and became one of the first professionals on the team before finally retiring from the company in 2008. Back in 1993 though, he started Hook-ups, which started mainly producing T-shirts with Japanese animation style female characters and monsters on their products which has become their well recognized trademark. It has grown over the years into a fully fledged skateboard company producing their own boards, shoes and other apparel. Now to celebrate his brands time and his own within skateboarding, skater owned Hook-ups and Etnies have teamed up to release a collaborative shoe, the Etnies Marana X Hook-ups. The shoe is a translation of the Hook-ups Special Police style which was released in 1995. The designs on the shoe are reminiscent of the original Hook-ups style, it has the same Japanese katakana on the side and a silhouette which is similar.
