World Cup etnies

Posted by: apple

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.

World Cup etnies 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!

KNVB etnies

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.

    What kind of bullshit is this? Not the shoes, the bloody FIFA stats page. USA on 7th place? Come on, you all know that the good ol’ U.S of A sucks at football (yes, football. NOT SOCCER!).

    That list is bullshit. USA being better than Spain, England, Portugal or even Sweden? I can’t think of ONE single american footballplayer but I can instantly think of two world players from each country listed above. Has Fifa been bought by Bush?

    hrmm..that is strange, indeed. I wonder on what statistics this list is based on.

    Oeps sorry, I just found out that the shoes isn’t made!!
    The UK isn’t even in for the World Cup!
    And who is A4 to decide that we don not do the Dutch shoe?
    Al lot of players playing in the UK are from Holland, Ruud van Nistelrooi en Dennis Bergkamp.

    If you could make the holland shoe like that can you make a Mexico shoe with its crest and in reverse colors(green w/ white & red accents) that would be awsome! They would sell a lot all over because us FUTBOL players cant ware cleats all over the place so we prefer skating shoes cause they’re the best. anyway you guys just send me an email so i could put the shoes in my soccer store. its in Chicago the best city in the USA! but damn its cold -later

    Adrian: A Mexico shoe is coming out soon! Check it!
