etnies “Marana” x Ryan Sheckler: Exclusive Concrete Interview

Monday, November 26th, 2012

November 26, 2012 marks the official release of the Ryan Sheckler signature Marana colourway by etnies, which is part of the Ryan Sheckler Collection. Fresh for Holiday ’12, the Marana is a perfect choice for Shecks because the shoe meets his demands for the highest quality. Aside from his needs, Ryan wanted kids to benefit from proper foot protection and durability as well, so the Marana fits the mold.

Check out our exclusive Ryan Sheckler x etnies Marana interview to celebrate the release of his signature colourway:

Concrete: What are the key etnies shoe features you insisted on working with this time around?
Ryan Sheckler: I was just getting tired of getting heel bruises and having a pair of shoes I really liked, but only being able to skate them for a few days ’cause they would blow out. So I wanted to make a durable shoe—one you could skate for a while even after it was broken in. Of course any time you can get as close to a bare foot as possible is the best, but, you need support when skating.

This is the 7th etnies shoe you’ve been involved with. What makes the Marana stand out from the rest and how does the shoe suit your style of skating?
The Marana stands out because it’s the most durable shoe we’ve made to-date. The last pair I had, the soles wore out from pushing before I got any holes from ollies. They break-in really easily and mold to your feet, and then they last for a while after that so you get to skate a shoe for a long time that feels really good.

An example of putting shoes to the test would be that Dew Tour San Francisco “Street Style” event that you won on October 21st. Can you explain what the experience was like and mention the quirks of that course?
Oh, man. That was one of the gnarliest courses I’ve ever skated, it was so fun. You were going so fast—you can’t really even tell on TV how fast we were going but it was insane, I had so much fun:

What are the latest happenings at the Sheckler Foundation? Any good stories to tell from a recent event?
We have a lot going on right now. I just got back from a trip to Nebraska, where I helped Mike Smith of Skate for Change dedicate a skatepark. We also donated money to help Skate for Change feed the homeless. Mike has a great heart and I was stoked to go out and help. We are currently helping the Port Gamble S’Klallam Native American Youth build a skatepark on their reservation. If you check out our website, you can follow the foundation as we educate, equip and empower our followers to “Be the Change” they want to see in their communities. 2013 is promising to be a big year for the Sheckler Foundation.

Can you provide any new insight on the highly anticipated Plan B video?
Not much, just that we are hard at work filming for it. The whole team is heading out to China on a big filming trip. Everyone, even street Colin and Danny. The video should be out sometime in 2013.

What’s the most entertaining request you’ve ever heard from a fan?
Oh man, I don’t even know where to start with that one…
