01 Mar Etnies X NE WInter Blues Contest


It’s the home stretch, March. After what’s been a brutal winter, most of us are hopeful that this month will be more spring like than winter like. To help bring in spring, we’ve teamed up with Etnies to help you win a fresh pair of Etnies Marana shoes, so you can toss away the old, salty, stinky shoes you’ve been wearing this winter and start spring off on the right foot.

The contest rules are very simple, tell us what you’ve been doing to stay sane this winter. You must follow Etniesbmx on instagram as well as NorthernEmbassy. You can post it on instagram or facebook (using #NEWinterBlues), or else on youtube, vimeo or even email it to us ( It can be a picture, description, video, whatever, the rules are pretty open. It can be you riding indoors, you riding outdoors, playing hockey, snowboarding, whatever you’ve done to keep busy while anxiously awaiting to ride outside again. Be creative and the winner gets a pair of one of the best riding shoes out there.

The contest is running from March 1st to March 31st, with the winner and honorable mentions getting posted on the site shortly after March 31st.

Good Luck!

It’s great to see Amos getting the support he deserves, through great companies like Etnies BMX and MacNeil Bikes. Look out in 2015, as this is just the appetizer to the smorgasbord of footage Amos is sitting on…
