etnies collaborated with team rider, JP Walker, to make a special version of its classic style, the Screw. The updated version of the mid-top shoe is on a new slimmer silhouette, and it usessnow friendly water-resistant materials.
Did you know that the original etnies Screw shoe’s name was actually short for “Screw You?” When it originally came out in 1993 the shoe featured a K.O. Man on the shoe’s tongue. The K.O. Man is a graphic etnies’ owner Pierre Andre sketched out during a trip back from Paris, France because it was the way he was feeling at the time. The K.O. Man etnies logo became the best-selling footwear and apparel graphic of the time. This version of the shoe doesn’t feature the K.O. Man on it but rather JP Walker’s SPOT logo on the tongue, footbed and outer heel panel.
