BLOOM Foam Sole
Etnies has partnered with BLOOM to help reduce our environmental impact by focusing on the foam used in the soles of our shoes. BLOOM, the world's first plant-based, performance-driven foam, formulated with algae, is renewable biomass that cleans the environment and reduces the risk of algal blooms, all while reducing our dependence on fossil fuels.
Etnies was the company that put skate shoes on the market. Created by skateboarders for skateboarder, the company was built from the streets and taken to the next level through pure entrepreneurial drive. Their team roster reads like a whos-who of skateboard legends. With a huge heart for the environment, they set up the "Buy a shoe, plant a tree initiative" in 2011 and have successfully planted over 1 million trees.
