Below

You might need to set aside some quiet time for this one, but I definitely recommend you do. Richard Forne did a good job of getting the Above Below crew (and more) to candidly discuss BMX and its lifestyle in the BELOW version of the video. Also, that screengrab is horrifying.

You can watch Above Below in full below. This is the most I’ve ever typed “below” in one spot.

Fuck Benetton!

I knew these guys were up to something when they came through Austin.

From Etnies:
Through their collective group of progressive riders, Corey Martinez, Nathan Williams and Geoff Slattery, etnies and United Bike Company joined forces to create an entire line of footwear, apparel and bikes together. The collection mixes in primary colors that tie the apparel’s bright graphics with the footwear’s bright pops of color in the contrast stitching to the spokes of the bikes wheels. This collaboration, with the brands’ riders, comprises the United Colors of etnies.

Nashville Brake

Nathan’s Grey/White/Green BRAKE color way is available now, along with other options. Nathan’s skills are not for sale unfortunately, so you will have to settle for his signature shoe. Click below to watch said skills.

From Etnies:
The etnies Brake is the first shoe made specifically for brakeless BMX riding! Nathan Williams worked closely with the design team to create the Brake; exactly what he and all the brakeless BMX riders need. The Brake is a cupsole with a more durable rubber on the toe and heel of the outsole so the rider doesn’t wear through it. This BMX-specific outsole features a herringbone step pattern designed to grip pedals, but also releases when needed without tearing. A dense EVA shank in the midsole arch provides extra protection from the pedals without sacrificing pedal feel, while softer EVA on the toe and heel provide extra flexibility and comfort. It also has a triple-stitched overlay toe for durability and an STI Foam Level 1 cushioning footbed for support. The fall 2012 Brake comes in black/grey and brown/blue as well as Nathan Williams’ grey/white/green colorway. Price: $75.

Etnies in India

Really enjoyed this video documenting Arron Ross, Nathan Williams, and Tom Dugan’s Etnies trip to India. Loved hearing them talk about the trip and there’s some great visuals to go along with the commentary… Definitely looks like a crazy trip and shout out to Walter Pieringer for putting together a great video!

New Nathan Williams Video Part!!!

This edit is supposed to be promoting Nathan’s shoe with Etnies, but I consider it a video part for a video that doesn’t exist. This shit is gooooood!

About the Brake:
The Brake is a cupsole shoe that features more durable rubber on the toe and heel area to endure the rigors of using your foot as a brake on the tire. The BMX-inspired outsole features a herringbone step pattern designed to grip pedals, but also release when needed without tearing. A denser EVA shank in the midsole arch provides extra protection and stability from the pedals without sacrificing pedal feel, while softer EVA on the toe and heel provide extra flexibility and overall comfort.

In working with the designers to create his “Brake” colorway, Williams incorporated details inspired from his Native American heritage.
