adidas Skateboarding have unveiled a new variation of the popular Matchcourt Mid, combining with global rider Marc Johnson on the design. Announcing the release with a comical sitcom style commercial dubbed "On Your Marc", which follows Marc and his shoe's unbreakable bond, it's the first shoe from Marc since his controversial move from Lakai to adidas.
Fusing style and functionality, the latest update to the classic Matchcourt maintains its performance features such as the moulded PU sockliner for comfort and cushioning upon impact. Aesthetically, it's one of our favourite reworks of the shoe to date, which has been draped in a premium pig nubuck suede in Pantone 542 - the same blue used by the University of North Carolina, giving a nod to MJ's native state. Additional details include contrasting white leather three stripe branding, rubberised toe cap and lacing, rounded off with a subtle gold foil MJ branding on the side panels.
The adidas Skateboards Matchcourt Mid UNC x Marc Johnson is available now online and at select retailers including Attitude
