Etnies X Disney Collaboration
Sneakerhead fascination with childhood memories comes alive again, this time with skate giant etnies banging out an official Disney release. Taking The Hundreds x Disney collection to the next level, etnies adopt a more subtle approach with understated designs on each sneaker. The etniesXDisney Co:Labs high-top Upsetter and lo-top Sly for the Men’s collection feature images of classic Disney cartoons such as Evil Lord and Mickey Mouse. The Fantasia collection chronicles the famous 'Night on Bald Mountain' cartoon which is based on a Slavic myth about spirits in the night. Both the Sly and Upsetter shoes draw inspiration from this legend with use of dark grey and black base colors, hinted by shades of bright purple. The Plane Crazy collection features the Sly 2 and Upsetter shoes in brown and tan tones, which is pulled from the infamous Mickey Mouse cartoon in which he tries to mimic the flying adventures of Charles Lindbergh.
Not forgetting our Freakettes, the etniesXDisney Co:Labs collection for women consists of the Zanza shoe embellished with images of Tinkerbell and the cult classic film Fantasia. The Tinkerbell shoe is the ultimate female indulgence, portraying one of Disney’s most beloved and sassy characters, lined with gold leather. The entire collection will hit stores in March at all good etnies stockists!
