Chunky Retro Skateboarding Sneakers

Jamal Smith and adidas Skateboarding Launch a New Adimatic

— May 12, 2022 — Lifestyle
Adidas Skateboarding works in collaboration with pro-rider Jamal Smith on a new iteration of the Adimatic. Smith updates the shoe with a darker tonal palette as black suede makes up the toe boxes, the tongue section, and the side walls. The mudguards continue in the same tonal language as well.

Branding details can be seen on the lateral side of the sneaker in bright orange for tonal contrast. This arrives in the form of thicker Three Stripes made using suede materials and the thick aesthetic continues at the tongue, which is adorned with an adidas banner. Additionally, zig-zag details continue at the midsole foundation and it all rests on top of a grippy gum outsole.
