Last Friday, etnies kicked off Spring Break at the Los Angeles Mission's Easter Event... not quite the barefoot romp we'd normally opt for, but well worth it.
etnies founder and CEO Pierre André Senizergues lead the team in delivering 2,000 pairs of new shoes to the homeless on LA's Skid Row. Each person was welcomed with a hearty holiday meal, a cleansing foot bath and a pair of etnies.
“Growing up I had the opportunity to meet a lot of homeless people while I was out skating spots in the city, and I really felt for them,” said Senizergues.
The event also marked etnies' 10th year as a proud supporter of the Los Angeles Mission. Skid Row holds the majority of the homeless in Los Angeles County with more than 7,000 walking the streets in 2007.
