adidas Skateboarding

Adidas’ skateboarding project continues to break the barriers between aesthetics and performance-driven tech. As the latest model within adidas’ skate range, the Liberty Cup has a nostalgic design inspired by classic tennis court shoes and ‘90s skateboarding and has been selected by Southbank native Chewy Cannon for his part within an ongoing Rider Series, which has introduced monthly instalments of footwear customised by selected team riders including Na-Kel Smith, Miles Silvas, Ishod Wair and Diego Nájera.

Arriving for the start of autumn, the Nora Vasconcellos capsule highlights the brands first female pro skater and includes a custom footwear design alongside customised apparel which are all unisex - a first for adidas. Sold exclusively through two selected skate stores, including Flatspot, the Nora Black Pack included low-key versions of each design.

A trend of additional outsole wraps have become a signature of modern styles such as the Sabalo which was introduced earlier this year with a waved mudguard inspired by fisheye lense videography. Also seen across the 3ST project, which was initiated by American skater Scott Johnson, 3D heel designs and textural overlays run across models such as the 3ST.004 and displays

improvements suggested by key voices within the industry combined with forward thinking aesthetics. Both the adidas 3ST.003 and 3ST.004 styles present this innovation perfectly with reinforced suede uppers combined with breathable mesh, BOOST technology and a fold over tongue. When it comes to a combination of premium materials, the Busenitz model has seen a variety of distinctive iterations since its inception, including the use of Primeknit woven uppers and coated leather.

Continuing to celebrate communities, crews and collectives, the adidas skateboarding 3MC project looks to incorporate time spent both on and off the board with a range of versatile footwear styles that invite creativity and collaboration. The Flatspot team took the latest arrivals on the road for a collaborative project, which you can check out here.

An accompanying range of apparel keeps us on our toes each season with experimental patterns and colourways that play into the adidas brand heritage. Casual silhouettes incorporate Climalite technology, providing a modern take on signature club jerseys, whilst triple stripes remain prominent, reworked into many different formats with graphic t-shirts and crewnecks accommodating a more relaxed vibe.
