These Mark Gonzales sneakers are perfect for fans of the professional skateboarder and artist who are looking for a way to express their appreciation for his unique designs.

Created in collaboration with adidas, the Mark Gonzales sneakers are a rework of the sportswear brand's 'Adi-Ease' silhouette, which boasts a simplistic streamlined build. The uppers are covered in a light bubblegum-pink hue -- helping the skateboarder's musings, which are scribbled in black, to stand out.

Instead of adidas' usual branding on the tongues of the sneakers, Mark Gonzales' popular 'Angel' creation is adapted into its form, with its simple smiley face and large wings fanning out to make a unique embroidered design. adidas' mark is made clear on it simultaneously however, as its iconic three stripes are integrated into the design.
