adidas x Tyshawn Limited Edition Apparel
Backed by the ‘courthouse kid’ nickname from his Supreme ‘Cherry’ debut in 2014 and by his untameable sense of visionary direction, adidas team rider Tyshawn Jones welcomes a capsule adidas clothing release which focuses on celebrating vintage B-ball nostalgia and modernised necessity at its core. Aligning nicely alongside his recently released adidas Tyshawn Low and other signature silhouettes such as his iconic self titled adidas Tyshawn skate shoe and his adidas x Fucking Awesome release from 2020, Jones is an undoubtedly energised skater with an unruly sense of contemporary creativity to match.
A sponsored skater since the age of 13 and joining the adidas Skateboarding team when he was just 15 years old, Tyshawn Jones’ youthful guise is one that accurately reflects the skater’s East Coast allure and his unfathomably unique skate style. Inspired by the likes of Emerica's Bryan Herman and Deathwish’s Lizard King, and crowned Thrasher Magazine’s Skater of the Year in 2018, Jones’ illustrious reputation is one that has continued to grow since his notorious ‘Away Days’ appearance and the announcement of his first signature shoe, the triple white adidas Tyshawn, idealised in partnership with footwear designer Scott Johnston in 2019. With a love for his NYC roots, his appreciation for classic courtside culture and his ties to both his and Na-Kel Smith’s Hardies Hardware franchise, Jones’ multifaceted appeal is one focused on both fashion and functionality, a trait that has continued to inspire ever since his against-the-norm tracksuit styled adidas sponsorship announcement and his daring all-white ensemble appearance for his ‘Away Days’ Love Park gap shot.
Honouring the skater’s undeniable ability to skate all-season demands thanks to his ties to New York City’s tumultuous landscape, FW21 for the adidas x Tyshawn Jones clothing capsule features four key pieces that accurately reflect the skater’s street-focused persona and his love for custom design. Crafted from 100% polyamide plain weave and filled with a highly insulative down filling for increased heat retention during colder skate sessions, the adidas Tyshawn Puff Jacket is a padded long sleeve layer built to handle even the most demanding of settings. Gold foil intricacies mimic the trims found across the skaters signature skate shoes, with the collegiate green interior lining a subtle tribute to his follow up money green Tyshawn sneakers from July '19. For quick and easy under-jacket layering, the two tone pinstripe adidas Tyshawn Sweatshirt boasts a 435gsn heavyweight French Terry composure for elevated warmth, whilst it's sporty silhouette keeps adidas founding track and field lineage in mind.
Loyal to Jones' fashion focused favouring and his appreciation for OG adidas tracksuits, matching adidas Tyshawn Sweatpants are styled with the same pinstripe details as their upper half sibling, whilst the 100% recycled polyester adidas Tyshawn Basketball Shorts combine reference to the skaters Bronx upbringing with both his love of classic court culture and his admiration for inventive, function focused skate-centric apparel.
