Etnies SEED: enviromental consciousness for the fashion conscious

By Jonathan Smith on August 26th, 2008


Want fashion but NEED sustainability? Nah me neither, but if you’re unlike me and care for the welfare of the planet then the Etnies SEED project has just the thing for you.

The SEED project is a collaboration between Etnies and Gary Benzel bringing you footwear and apparel made from recycled and sustainable materials, on top of this 1% of the profits from the sale of these pieces will go to environmental organisations that Etnies believes “will plant the seeds for the future of action sports, humanity, and our planet.

The San Diego based artist Gary Benzel has had a strong guiding hand in the design of the range and has done a smashing job, every piece looking great and finished to a high standard of quality that you sometimes don’t find in items born of recycled materials.

Jump through for the full range.

Etnies Plus

By admin on February 19th, 2008

Etnies Plus is the more fashion forward line from Etnies. But of course they’d never say ‘fashion forward’, those were my words. What Etnies say is that it’s a “a truly one-of-a-kind, numbered, limited-edition shoe series”. Rather than talk about namby pamby fashion, they turn it into something masculine and competitive, but really it’s the same thing.
Whatever you call it, it’s a rose that smells sweet. The colours are proper gorgeous, I love them, and the shapes are really contemporary – especially the Junior on the far left.
Left to right we have Junior, Rocksteady and Upsetter styles. They are only available in the States as far as I know, so if anyone’s going on holiday, can they pick me up a pair? Thanks.
