It was initially called 'Etnics' but renamed to Etnies due to some legal issues. Following his retirement from skateboarding, Pierre Andre Senizergues took charge of the company in 1989, making the Etnies the first ever skateboarding brand owned by a professional skateboarder.
Andre Senizergues introduced Etnies in America and designed some of the renowned 'Etnies' silhouettes such as Senix, Lo-Cut, Intercity, and the Scam. The brand pushed the envelope in designing Etnies skate shoes and made further advancements in the Thrasher's domain. Fast forward to the current days, Etnies is now based in California and turned as a subsidiary of the Sole Technologies Incorporated under the management of Senizergues. The brand remained accurate for being one of the top producers of sports apparel and continued to develop innovative technologies that combine protection, performance, comfort, and style.
The company is also into sponsoring professional teams in BMX, snowboarding, surfing, and skateboarding as it wanted to give back to the sphere that contributed to the success and central growth of Etnies. It now covers the worldwide market by establishing various outlets, reaching out to skateboarders and extreme sports communities from all over the globe. Etnies also expanded the collection by offering apparel, t-shirts, jackets, sweatshirts, shorts, jeans, and all other accessories.
