etnies Kids Collection Featuring Mike, Sulley and the Pinks
Mike and Sulley take center stage in the Disney·Pixar’s Monsters University collection from etnies Kids featuring preschool shoes that embody each of the characters’ personalities and physical traits.
Sulley’s monstrous hands used to “scare” people are the main design elements of the etnies Preschool RVM. The shoe opening where a child’s foot would fit is the perfect place for Sulley’s giant arms to close in around it, while the soft and fluffy interior plays up his loving and cuddly side. The materials selected pay tribute to the balance of his toughness and tenderness.
Mike’s shoe mirrors his fun-loving character and captures his skin texture, which was translated onto the shoe through a shiny-pebbled material. The same vibrant colors of his larger-than-life bright green face make a statement with his friendly smile staring up from the tongue of the shoe.
To sass up the collection, two of the Pinks cheerleaders from the film join in on the fun, with cheery style that immediately captures attention. Their flowing skirts, overwhelming pink outfits and furry hoofs were the elements of inspiration for these two shoes. Removable faux fur leg warmers mimic their fluffy and furry legs taking the style from a boot to a sneaker on the etnies Preschool Fader, while the etnies Kids RVM features their multiple googley eyes and scalloped, flirty skirts.
etnies Kids Collection Featuring the Roars, Okays and Pinks
Teams, fraternities, sororities and everything varsity is what can be found in this collection for kids. A collegiate feel is replicated in the material selection and detailing through appliques and stitching – in essence the etnies Kids RVM is a Letterman’s jacket for the feet. Different appliqués were used for the various teams from sporty mesh finishes, to soft and fuzzy and perforated materials.
Special Shadowbox Collection for Kids
When the lights go out, monsters come alive, which makes this shadow box collection a perfect design tribute to the film. This collection reflects the wild and mischievous personalities of these main monsters, Mike, Sulley and Johnny from the Roars. Bold colors and graphics on a relaxed profile provide a solid framework that gives the shoe a grownup look with a youthful flare.
