  • Outdoor Product Review: 5 Ways Etnies Kids Scout Shoes Inspire Action Play

    5 Apr 2014 | 8:16 am
    For me, etnies brings visions of So Cal skateboarders and etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest.  When etnies shared their Kids Scout shoes with my nephews and the adult Scout version with me and my kids — who happen to have adult-size feet — we put them to the test. Here are the 5 ways etnies Kids Scout shoes inspire action play: 1. RUN!  Upon trying the shoes on for the first time, the kids ages 7-to-12 immediately thought the Scout would make them run faster. Sprints up and down the neighborhood! At lightning speed! 2. WANT TO WEAR! Do you have kids that DO NOT want to wear shoes?
