With 2012 officially marking NRML's fifteenth anniversary, a series of collaborations with industry heavy-hitters have been released in celebration of this milestone. Just in time for Christmas, the latest collaboration finds NRML partnering with one of the original brands of steetwear, ``the underground inventive, overground effective`` label from Southern Cal, The Lifted Research Group. Bonded by a shared passion to support the independent and underground culture, a collaboration which embraced classic design through innovative essence was created with this limited edition NRML x LRG Anniversary Letterman Jacket.
The black wool shell features a script `L` logo patch on the left breast and an embroidered NRML logo on the right. A combination of iconic applique and embroidery is also found on the rear of the jacket. Snap button closures and a silk-like quilted lining keep the elements at bay, while a a ribbed mock collar and contrasting pinstriped cuffs accompany slit hand pockets. Limited to a production of only 50 units, the NRML x LRG Anniversary Letterman is available exclusively at NRML.
LRG has a long history of supporting upcoming and emerging talent, specifically the ones who are trying to "pay the rent with their passions." Enter Flight Distance, the dynamic capital city rap-duo featuring Bender and Patience, and backed by DJ Calkuta. Whether it’s their ultra high-octane, riot of a live show or their cold and calculated recorded material, Flight Distance have long established themselves as heavyweights in the local hip-hop scene. The group formed in 2004, and independently released their first EP “The Warning Shot” and the LP, “Run For Your Lives!” in 2005. Since then they have shared the stage with the likes of; Ghostface, GZA, Masta Ace, Brother Ali, Dilated Peoples, Shad, Jedi Mind Tricks and many more. Their new album "Bad Information" was released this year and is now available on iTunes.

After smashing into 1st place in the 2011 etnies tube rider challenge, etnies UK surfer Tom Butler has continued to seek out some big challenging, dangerous slabs around the UK and Ireland. On a constant vigil for deep low pressure systems, Tom continuously chases the best swells and has captured this slice of cold water magic to get you amped.
Freezing cold winters are not a thing to be afraid of according to Tom. This is heavy duty hardcore British surfing at its best. Grab a cup of tea and put your feet up and watch http://vimeo.com/33396948.

Thiago TOES is a 24 year-old Brazilian artist born in Curitiba-PR and is one of the up and coming members of the legendary São Paulo graffiti crew VLOK. He combines his street influences with a more personal,dream-influenced aesthetic. That mixture results in abstract paintings and letters, with sensible colouring and firm lines.

"Brooke Voight (Dragon,32/etnies Canada) competed this weekend in her first Invitational rail jam during the US Grand Prix in the Paul Mitchell Progression session and it's not surprise to us but I'm sure to the rest of the competitors that she took home 1st place beating out a solid field of ladies with including Cheryl Mass and took the podium with her technical tricks on the down bar, the super high down-flat-down bar and her tricks on the close out to drop rail. It was her 50/50 to frontside 360 on the down flat bar stomped with more gangster steeze than the dudes that sealed the win. The event was broadcast live on NBC and Brooke received good coverage and interviews." Roberta Walker

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.
