etnies found out that the City of Lake Forest banned BMX at the skatepark yesterday. The etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest is managed and run by the City of Lake Forest, not by etnies or etnies personnel. This decision was made by the City of Lake Forest, completely outside of the control and without the consent of etnies, and we are following up with the City of Lake Forest to see if this decision can be overturned.
The etnies brand is NOT in favor of this decision and etnies continues to support BMX by sponsoring team riders, putting on pro team tours, supporting rider training facility’s like The Bakery, and building BMX specific product. etnies has supported BMX since 1995, and the brand was one of the first shoe companies in the action sports community to embrace BMX by providing footwear to meet their specific needs.
