I must admit i feel horrible to include this in my Old Fools post series. Not for the fact that it is bad by any means. More to the point that it makes me finally admit to myself that I am getting old.
So far I’ve posted clips from videos that I watched when I “felt” young, Being ripe and ready to get up straight away after falling down. To me even they feel a long time ago. But Etnies “forward” despite it being an old memory still doesn’t feel that old to me. It’s like those stupid posts that people put up on face like “OMG you know you’re old when Jurassic park came out 15 years ago” or some shit. Fuck off. Unfortunately this has become one of those things for me. ETNIES FORWARD came out over 10 years ago now. Fuck.
This video to me is the pinnacle of “mid skool” bmx. Sure, we’ve all got “criminal mischief” and “search and destroy”. Those videos hold ultimate glory on the shelves of any self respecting bmx stunter. Etnies “forward” however brought a whole new level of production to the bmx video world. Super 8mm,16mm film, fancy intro computer type that moved, music edited in time with the music. This put a whole new look into bmx media that i dont think had happened before. Could this be the first big production bmx video? I mean christ, Rooftop back flips over a fucking helicopter for god’s sake. (I am not counting RAD in this ramble)
We all owe Dave Parrick Muchos respect and high regard to his consistency in producing amazing videos. This video had it all, quite possibly the best bmx team in the world at the time, an amazing soundtrack that boasted no grime, “shooting N****s”,”smacking bitches” or nu metal. Diversity was in full effect all round.
I have no idea where i am going with this now but all i can do is leave you with one of the most infamous sections in bmx video history to date. This section is why you know the name RUBEN ALCANTARA. Thanks you Dave Parrick.
Woah.. everything in this it huge!.. doesn’t need a soundtrack

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.
Always good to see an edit with Sergio in, you know there is going to be style for miles.

Nathan Williams, Corey Martinez and Ashley Charles are on both the etnies and United Bikes teams, so it was only a matter of time before these two rider-driven brands worked together to create a line of bikes, shoes and clothing. The entire etnies x United Bikes line was created by working closely with the riders to combine the United SU2 bike with some of their favorite etnies shoes and clothing.
