The Marana, Ryan’s seventh Etnies pro model, is released
Over the years that followed, Ryan continued to cement his reputation as a street skater. In late 2012, everyone who regularly checks The Berrics—which is pretty much everyone who skateboards—watched as Ryan switch flipped 13 long stairs in a spot introducing his latest pro shoe, the Marana. Depending on your age, the clip either reconfirmed that Ryan wasn’t afraid to tackle what was among the burliest switch flips in recent memory or reminded you that he was no longer the kid with the protective gear and the cheering parents and the oversize clothing. The shoe itself, which Ryan helped design from scratch and named for the street he lives on, suits a skater who made his mark long ago but is still only getting started.
