Etnies Score History

Etnies initially started in France in 1986. In 1989, a former professional skateboarder in the name of Pierre André Sénizergues took Etnies. Currently, Etnies is headquartered in Lake Forest, California. 

Initially, the name of the brand was Etnics. The word originated from the word “ethnic,” nodding to the skateboarding subculture. However, due to some legal issues, it was changed to Etnies.
