Etnies threw a little shindig to celebrate the release of Sean Malto’s first pro shoe. Southern California’s been having some wicked storms lately, but pretty much any excuse to get out from behind the Orange Curtain is a good one, so I headed up to LA to lurk amongst some of skateboarding’s finest in spite of the heavy rain and general lack of wet road driving ability from the natives. All in all, it was a great night. The food was good and the beer flowed like rice wine. Malto came correct on his shoe and Etnies hooked up a fun little party in his honor. Thanks to Sean, Tenno, everyone at Etnies and to Girl and Fourstar for hooking up the Malto inspired ensemble.
