Germany will host the 2006 World Cup this summer. Since our company has a lot of international employees who take great pride in their national teams, etnies decided to do a World Cup series. They picked the Dublin, a soon to be released and totally awesome shoe, designed by Dennys Han.
The World Cup Series Dublin came out pretty cool. Except for one big mistake. They forgot the number two ranked country in the world.
You guessed it…The Netherlands. The favorites to win the World Cup! So after pulling a few strings I proudly present to you…
The Dutch Dublins!
The shoe features the KNVB lion on the footbed, contrasting stitching and bright orange soles. Only a few pairs were made, so if you want some, contact your local skate shop and tell them to complain to etnies to put the Dutch Dublin in full production! These are going to be selling like pancakes when Holland wins the World Cup!
In the end I found out that A4 Distribution gave the etnies Production Manager the final list of countries to use. It make sense they left out Holland, since all the best players in the English Premier League are from Holland and they know the English team is nothing without them. Good luck in the World Cup you bloody bastards, you’re gonna need it.
