#etniesStyle is the edgy, fun look for fall. Score savings & win $500 in gear.

The new fall collection does not disappoint. And it maintains the skate cred that etnies is known for.

If you’re from OC, etnies is a name that holds serious hometown clout. Their Lake Forest skate park is legendary, their HQ is local, and they’ve helped many of us raise young skateboarders with big dreams—like living a day in the shoes of guys like OC’s own Ryan Sheckler.

My family lives etnies, and loves etnies (about 15 pairs in the house right now). So it was cool to have my son and daughter be a part of the latest etnies Kids collection that’s all about skate style and serious play—just how we roll. I’m stoked to tell you about the new fall looks, share insider Amazon savings and offer $500 in etnies gear here (giveaway details below).

My little guy, Fox, is always firing on all cylinders (seen “boarding” above and EPIC climbing below—just before he scaled the rail, did a backflip and an almost faceplant). He loves pushing the limits and is etnies through and through. He’s been sporting the new etnies Kids Scout, Marana and Jameson collection, and I can tell you they can keep up. And they look good.

The new fall collection boasts plenty of kicks for all kinds of kids. The Marana is seriously durable. “Skate in ‘em long enough, they start to mold to your feet so you can start learning faster—then they last after that so you can feel comfortable skating for awhile,” said San Clemente’s “Shecks” Sheckler. Scout Kids continue to live up to the hype with streamlined design and the same breathable mesh. And Jameson, the low-top canvas shoe, sports simplicity without compromise.

While shooting the ads for the fall campaign (behind the scenes, below), our motley crew of cute OC kids were laced up and set loose to kick back and play hard. The shoes proved worthy to all—diehard skateboarders to tough littles to girls who are about laid-back style (my girl in the shades at the skatepark).

Whether dropping in and doing tricks or just hanging out, this new collection can go the distance. And because all know that kids tear through shoes with reckless regard, it’s a bonus when the shoes last. Sheckler called his Maranas “the longest lasting shoe I’ve ever skated!” Coming from a guy like him, that insight goes a long way. So let your kids drop in, no worries.

etnies Kids are the real deal and they look the part without ever trying too hard. The shoes have soul too—when you buy a pair, etnies plants a tree. Right on.

To the next generation of game changers, unstoppable athletes and go-getters, get out there, look good, and have fun.

Check out the collection on right now, use the code SKATESHOES and save 20%. It pays to look good.

Oh, see we really do live the etnies life; sporting my pink Scouts to go workout this morning at Renaissance in OC. The adult styles come in all colors and are totally comfortable. Hmm, I should get pink Scouts for my girl too and we could match (but then she might OMG-die of embarrassment: “MOM!” Whatever.
