From the ground up

etnies and Verte have joined forces and created a collection of footwear and apparel that includes an updated version of the classic etnies Ollie King, the new Jameson shoe and the Pleather Jacket.  The collaboration will be offered exclusively at core skate shops beginning in June. 
Founded by Andre, Athena, Tino, Desiree and Marc Razo in 2002, Verte is a skate-influenced NYC-based apparel brand.   Andre, Tino and Marc grew up skateboarding in Vermont and later moved to New York City.  Initially their line of T-shirts sold at stores like DQM and Supreme.  Verte has grown organically through a strong demand and will offer a complete cut-and-sew apparel line in 2009.  
This collaboration series is very solid. All sneakers come in black, as well as the premium apparel that was designed along. Have a detailed look at all pieces of this collaboration after the jump.
