etnies Lo Cut Wear Test With Josh Wilson

Recently etnies Ambassador Josh Wilson teamed up with his friends Chase Espinoza and filmer Tristan Mershon and got to test out a pair of the all new redesigned etnies Lo-Cut. They didn't want this to be the normal wear test you're used to seeing so they decided to change it up a bit and make a sick edit of both park and street footage that's all fun. After watching this I'd suggest getting out there and having some fun for yourself as well! See photos.

#TBT PJ Ladd's Wonderful, Horrible Life

In the history of skateboarding there are only two other examples of people coming onto the scene via rookie video parts as hard as PJ did in the Coliseum video: Pat Duffy and Chris Joslin. So like, pretty much once per decade on average since the start of the 90s. There are a couple things that should be said here. First, I’d never heard of PJ Ladd until this video came out. Second, it was a shop video (!), and as far as I remember I’d never heard of Coliseum before I saw this video either. Third, PJ was light years ahead of the times. This part is still my favorite of anything he’s ever done because it was so ridiculous, unexpected, and amazing. There’s a lot of flatground skating, but it’s the best flatground skating ever, and then there’s everything else he does. Minds blown kids.
