The etnies Brake is the first shoe ever made specifically for brakeless BMX riding! Nathan Williams worked closely with the design team to create, the Brake, exactly what he and all the brakeless BMX riders need. The Brake is a cupsole with a more durable rubber on the toe and heel of the outsole so the rider doesn’t wear through it. This BMX-specific outsole features a herringbone step pattern designed to grip pedals, but also releases when needed without tearing. A dense EVA shank in the midsole arch provides extra protection from the pedals without sacrificing pedal feel, while softer EVA on the toe and heel provide extra flexibility and comfort. It also has a triple-stitched overlay toe for durability and an STI Foam Level 1 cushioning footbed for support.

As Nathan has been involved with the design of this shoe itmade sense to get him his own signature colorway of the Brake.

Take me to the intro video!

Nathan Williams - Introducing the etnies Brake



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.

In working with the designers to create his “Brake” colorway, Williams incorporated details inspired from his Native American heritage.

"It's a huge honor to be able to work with everybody at etnies designing this shoe, and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out,” said Williams. “Everything, down to even the leather laces, the arrow head and the feather insole art came out exactly how I wanted."
