With the video above, etnies introduces a limited edition collaboration with contemporary artist Toshikazu Nozaka.
A professional skateboarder in the 90s, Nozaka found another outlet for his creativity through traditional Japanese tattoos. Rooted in spirituality, he modernizes the ancient art with a western influence. Like his skateboarding, clean, smooth lines are apparent in his art.
The Nozaka Collection consists of the Jameson 2 and Barge LS skate shoes, three tee options, a pair of shorts and a hat. All styles available now at etnies.com.
