adidas Skateboarding continue to tap some of the best names in skateboarding for their collaborative ventures. Having linked up with Alltimers for a special release last season, they follow up with a second capsule collection with Cali's Welcome Skateboards.
The latest release sticks to similar themes from last years collection, again featuring a custom 'soccer' jersey, which this time around arrives in a simplistic white and black colour option, donning Welcome's signature graphics on the badge, sponsorship and back print. The Matchcourt Mid becomes the latest adi silhouette to get the Welcome treatment, arriving in a 'Seafoam Blue' colour way, the shoe features a durable premium suede on the upper which has been reinforced with a tonal rubber toe cap. The Mid shape offers slightly more protection around the ankle and the molded sock-liner locks the foot in place to avoid slippage. The design is rounded off with black accents on the three stripe's, lacing and branding on the tongue and heel, all of which sits on top of a crisp white sole unit and semi-translucent gum outsole.
Welcome founder Jason Celaya had this to say on the partnership;
"I am a proponent of the evolution of both my personal life and my company, however, there are a few things in my life that are constants. Along with skateboarding and art, one of those constants has been adidas. Probably ever since the mid ’80s I have worn Adidas as my skate shoes and my date shoes."
The Welcome Skateboards x adidas Skateboarding capsule collection is set to drop online and select retailers from the beginning of May. Be sure to keep your eyes on social pages for updates on the drop!
