Today, etnies premiered the new Devon Smillie full video part on the brand’s YouTube channel. Devon put in some serious work in the streets to create this five-minute, three-song part. He’s always been known as a rider with remarkable consistency and a very difficult technical trick selection.

Devon will be running his new etnies Windrow Vulc signature colorway in the X Games BMX Street Contest this Friday, and they are available today on etnies.com.
Devon’s clean, classic signature black/black/white color combo with the etnies stylized “E” logo on the side, and his Fly Bikes “Fuego” logo on the footbed fits his style.
Perfect for riding or chilling in, the Windrow Vulc arrives in a single wrapped vulcanized constructed shoe with a Force Shield reinforced upper. This etnies shoe has a Foam Lite 2 molded EVA footbed and a Geo-Hex tread pattern outsole. It offers long-lasting comfort with a rubber heel wrap for support with a 400NBS rubber outsole.
Devon Smillie got his first racing bike at just 3 years old. With all-around abilities, a motocross and BMX racing background, and strong skateboarding skills too, it is safe to say that Smillie has left his mark in BMX. When Devon’s not ripping a local spot, you can catch him on the track, drifting his 350Z.
