Available today on etnies.com, the etnies Earn Your Stripe RCT collection represents Nick and Willow’s accomplishments, variances and commonalities, all in one shoe style that features etnies’ “stripe”, the classic Rap bar, on the side panels. Some details about each colorway include:

· Nick Garcia RCT – Dark Navy, $65

Nick’s colorway of the RCT is reminiscent of the navy and gold colors used on his first pro Element board with a special interior lining tying back to his Pro campaign. The shoe is emblazoned with the etnies Earn Your Stripe seal on the side heel and footbed.

· Willow RCT – Black/Red, $65

Reflecting the black, red and gold colors of the German flag, his native country, and his first pro model Almost board, Willow’s RCT signature colorway is made of canvas, his preferred shoe material, and features the etnies Earn Your Stripe seal on the side heel and footbed.

As one of the most comfortable styles in the etnies collection, the RCT is narrow with a specially shaped toe to increase board flick, while the midsole has a cage-like design built for additional support.
