When Etnies signed Matt ‘Wilko’ Wilkinson to their surf team, we knew it wouldn’t be long before they released a Wilko model that ripped as hard has his backhand surfing.What could’ve never expected was just how dapper these kicks would be.
The first thing that’ll turn heads is the colorway: a washed, greyish almost denim looking colorway that is as unique as the Wilko character himself. Bottom line is that there isn’t anyone else walking around with shoes of any kind that look as sharp as these.
They’re light too! You’re not gonna want to skate in them, but let’s face it, you’ll be hanging with the ladies in these shoes, not skating mini-ramps. You’ll be comfortable doing so too…Wilko sends a nod to his motherland with Australian Flag printed footbeds and his classic logo drawing from his blog ‘Out To Brunch’.
If the above doesn’t want to make you order these up as your next pair of shoes, the movement behind it definitely will. Etnies is making Wilko plant trees with each pair of kicks sold. Check out the latest happenings with the ‘Buy A Shoe, Plant A Tree’ program that we’re so high on right now.
Listen up, you’re gonna look good in these, you’re gonna feel good and when you buy em’ you’ll be putting another beautiful tree in the Etnies Rainforest.
