It’s with a tip of the hat that Cairo Foster retired from professional skateboarding. He could have milked it, he could have coasted but he wanted to walk away on his terms. One more reason Cairo is a legend. Enjoi proudly sponsored Cairo for over a decade and he will be forever part of the enjoi family. Cairo, you are truly one of the greats!!! Thank you!

adidas Skateboarding x Japanese Skateboard Brand, Evisen

adidas Skateboarding reveals its latest capsule collection with Tokyo-based skate brand, Evisen. A curated clash of east meets west, the collaborative effort debuts a strong collection of essential silhouettes for any season, while incorporating Japanese design details with street and sportswear cues. The 5-piece apparel and footwear collection is designed with functionality and practicality built into each product.

 “Evisen is a skateboarding brand that I started in 2011 with my close friends,” explains Evisen founder, Katsumi Minami. “Our style is a combination of traditional Japanese imagery and skateboarding. All of the team are rare characters, they’re all interesting in their own way, lifestyle as well as skateboarding. For the collaboration with adidas, our art director’s idea was create a logo from sampling sake labels. The whole team loves drinking sake.”

Co-created with adidas Skateboarding and Evisen, the capsule’s apparel offering includes a heavyweight fleece crewneck, a vibrant cotton tee with sleeve graphics, a woven pique fabric jersey with a water repellent finish, a nylon relaxed fit track pant, and a lightweight, water repellent jacket.

The collection will also feature a custom 3MC shoe, redesign to align with the aesthetics of the Tokyo-based board brand. The Evisen 3MC features a durable leather upper constructed to withstand skate-related abrasion and a vulcanized rubber HexFlex outsole that follows the foot’s natural movement. The clean and minimalistic sneaker design comes in an all white colorway paired back with subtle red and yellow detailing.

Tiago Lemos | Welcome To Primitive Skate

Tiago Lemos | Welcome To Primitive Skate

Tiago Lemos first came up on my radar through Carlos Ribeiro back when we first started Primitive Skate. Carlos would always talk about his friend back home who was getting so good at skating and had next level ability but didn’t even realize how good he was getting. When I went on the first “We Are Blood” trip and saw Tiago skate first hand, I put it together that this was the guy that Carlos was talking about, and I immediately saw what he meant. When I’m stood next to Tiago I’m the same size as him, but as soon as he steps on the board it’s almost like he turns into the Hulk: he’s bigger, stronger, faster. When he gets to a spot he’ll start methodically breaking it down, he starts with his normal tricks and builds on them until all of a sudden he’s rolling away from the most fucked up trick, and he does that every day, I’ve never seen anything like it. I’m tripping that Tiago is joining the squad, it’s a huge honor to make it official that Tiago Lemos skates for Primitive! - Paul Rodriguez
