etnies Press Release

LAKE FOREST, CA. (May 13, 2009) – The Metal Mulisha was the first of its kind – a group of hell raisers that have been at the center of the freestyle moto x movement since it began. To celebrate the Mulisha’s 10 year anniversary, etnies salutes them with a collaboration featuring Metal Mulisha graphics on the Fader and Chrome shoes for 2009.

The shoes reflect their long history of being instigators or as they refer to themselves “the most bad-ass moto x team in the world.” Brian Deegan has been on the etnies team since before co-founding the Metal Mulisha in 1999, and his fellow Mulisha members Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg, Todd Potter, Josh Grant, Seth Enslow, Luke Urek, Nixey Danielson and Beau Manley are also members of the etnies team.

“It’s hard to believe that the Metal Mulisha has been pushing the limits and setting the standard in freestyle moto x for ten years,” said Brian Deegan, etnies team rider and co-founder of the Metal Mulisha. “The etnies Metal Mulisha Fader and Chrome are the best shoes out there right now!”
