adidas' Skateboarding department have combined with photographer Ari Marcopoulos on a small capsule release which draws from the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple. The release includes a zine, limited edition rework of the brands skate ready Seeley silhouette and accompanying apparel, all of which takes inspiration from Ari's signature documentary style photography and self-published zines. The stand-out from the collection is the unique take on the Seeley, which has been reworked with a full-grain leather upper and a woven lining for increased comfort. The numbered graphics along the piping of the sole unit represent those on a film contact sheet, while the “Aight” patch on the tongue is taken from the masthead of Ari's zine by the same name.
The adidas Skateboarding x Ari Marcopoulos collection is available now online at adidas.co.uk.
