Etnies and Plan B link up for their latest collaboration, with shared rider Trevor McClung in the spotlight.
In order to allow skaters to rest and recover in Supreme Comfort, etnies developed the incredibly successful Scout. With an STI Evolution® Foam outsole, this lightweight shoe weighs in at only 182 grams. That is comparable to the weight of a newborn kitten. etnies just bomb dropped yarn on the Scout, transforming it into the Scout Yarn Bomb (YB).
The Scout YB is an off-the-board shoe fit for the comfort of the skate gods. The upper is built from a combination of mesh & knit thread. There is nothing technologically advanced about yarn or knitting or knit footwear. Your grandmother knits. Friendship bracelets, elementary art projects and leg warmers are all made from yarn. Kids wear handmade knit hats. That newborn kitten will play with a ball of yarn. Yarn is not innovative and knitting is merely a pattern of loops. The knit upper on the Scout YB is Comfortable as Fuck and just looks nice, ‘like a sweater on a tree’.
etnies is always Built By Skateboarding. The Collection also includes key styles from the Marana Bloodline that are Tough as Fuck. When Trevor isn’t resting and recovering in the Scout YB, he is a dropping hammers in the etnies x Plan B Marana XT.
