adidas Skateboarding & Hélas joined forces for a second time to craft a collection influenced by Japanese anime and old-school tennis. The new limited-edition collection approaches 90s anime from a modern perspective of tennis apparel. The results of the series embodies Hélas nonchalant vibes, including pastel-colored sneakers, polo shirts, pants and a duffel bag.

The Lucas Premiere x Hélas shoe incorporates a court heritage and represents anime on the insole details. It sports a eggshell colorway crafted in premium leather, leather heel cap, textile lining, breathable reinforced toe, and a grippy outsole for sturdiness.

The apparel in the collection complements the footwear with the same pastel color scheme and its embodiment of the nonchalant French aesthetic. The exclusive adidas Skateboarding & Hélas collaborative footwear and clothing will be available at selected adidas retail locations globally and on the adidas Skateboarding website on February 10th.
