Etnies and Electronic Arts have worked together to bring the etnies GvR skateboarding contest to the Skate 2 video game, and has created an etnies Skate 2 RVM shoe for real world skateboarding. Drawing inspiration from etnies skate heritage, the RVM features the classic etnies Rap styling with a slimmed down mid-top silhouette on a vulcanized outsole and a tonal Skate 2 logo on the outer heel. The RVM also features STI System G2 gel in the heel of the outsole to absorb shock and prevent heel bruises. The shoe will be sold at Zumiez in the United States, and it will be available at select retailers internationally when the game hits stores late January 2009 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
