adidas Skateboarding X Krooked Skateboards - the three stripes and Mark Gonzales' beloved board brand come together for the Spring season.
adidas skateboarding and Krooked have teamed for a whimsical capsule featuring artwork by Mark Gonzales spread across a variety of garments alongside limited release colourway of the adidas Superstar Vulc ADV.
The collection draws on Gonz's legacy within skateboarding by incorporating art from his 'Gonz and Roses' pro model deck, originally released during his time riding for Vision Skateboards in 1988, which the board features an instantly recognizable caricature of Gonz penned himself and was later reissued under Krooked Skateboards.
The collection brings together both Gonz's history within skateboarding and adidas heritage with unique take on the 'firebird' tracksuit alongside more contemporary pieces, including a t-shirts and longsleeves, all carrying bright white and canary blue colour palette reflecting the light hearted nature of The Gonzfather himself and Krooked Skateboards as a whole.
Centerpiece for adidas Skateboarding X Krooked Skateboards collaboration is the adidas Superstar Vulc ADV. The classic Superstar is often found on the feet of Gonz and this updated version of the heritage adidas model swaps out the traditional cupsole for vulcanised construction providing excellent boardfeel and, coupled with the shoe's premium white leather upper, delivers a classic adidas aesthetic.
