The collaboration between adidas and team rider Tyshawn Jones results in a pair of eye-catching emerald green sneakers that are tested by the skateboarding pro himself. The silhouette is created with reference to the expertise of Scott Johnson — a former pro skater and Footwear Design Director.
The emerald green sneakers are stylistically balanced by the whiteness of the sole and adidas' iconic three stripes. The silhouette is performance-ready as the designers completed it with an Adituff reinforced toe, an inner Vulc wrap, a PU-molded sock liner, as well as a memory foam tongue to ensure optimum adaptability.
To enhance the effect of the footwear debut, the collaborators supplement the launch with two apparel pieces for Fall/Winter 2019, as well as a visual short filmed by Jones, Willaim Strobeck.
