adidas Skateboarding teams up with their own Mark “Gonz” Gonzales and his brainchild, Krooked Skateboards for the second installment of the adidas x Krooked collaboration. The latest footwear and apparel collection pays homage to Gonz’s iconic art and modernizes the classic 1988 “Gonz and Roses” board graphic to bridge multiple generations of skateboarding.
Designed from the ground up with Krooked Skateboards, the collection is tied together by a timeless white and canary blue color palette, applied to an equally classic silhouette, the Superstar Vulc. The Superstar Vulc x Krooked shoe features a leather upper, reinforced with a shell toe, that rests atop a vulcanized outsole for precise board feel. The collection continues with a full apparel line featuring a track jacket, vintage tear-away track pants, a lightweight jersey, a sweat-wicking Climalite® t-shirt, a long-sleeve shirt, and a reversible bucket hat. Throughout the collection, Gonz’s iconic, original artwork provides a unique aesthetic to the heritage-inspired silhouettes.
