Over two decades ago, Pierre-Andre Senizergues, etnies owner & CEO, moved to Los Angeles. Freshly off the plane from France, he was eager to pursue his dream of skateboarding, but quickly found himself alone and homeless in a country where he didn’t speak the language. His experience of living out of a van for six months is one of the driving reasons behind his annual etnies shoe donation to the homeless. Last Friday at the Los Angeles Mission’s annual Easter celebration, etnies brought comfort to the soles of Los Angeles’ homeless in the form of 2,000 pairs of brand new shoes. Devine Calloway, BK, Andy Bell and joined etnies staff, celebrity volunteers & Mayor Villaraigosa for the event where Pierre and filmmaker Mike Manzoori went behind the scenes to show how the simple gesture of giving can change of lives.
