etnies and Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization, have teamed up and created co-branded shoes, available in stores now, in an effort to increase awareness and raise funds for autism research. Through this partnership and support from etnies skate, surf, snow, BMX and moto team riders, etnies is striving to boost support and awareness of autism spectrum disorder research among a community that may not be aware of the prevalence of autism affecting children everywhere.

“Friends and family of the etnies team opened the brand’s eyes to the significant increase of people on the autism spectrum and how autism prevalence has risen 600 percent in the last two decades,” said Don Brown, senior VP of marketing for etnies. “We learned how individual action sports like skateboarding can have a positive effect on children with autism and decided a partnership with Autism Speaks, an organization making such great strides in autism research, would help us to champion this great cause together.”
