2018 collaboration season has begun in earnest it seems with the latest one coming via adidas Skateboarding x Krooked Skateboards who are set to drop their second collection on April 21st.
Following the recent Na-Kel Smith x adidas Skateboarding capsule, this Krooked designed collection features an iteration of the iconic Superstar vulc silhouette, plus a range of related apparel (which you can see below), all featuring Krooked branding in a white and canary blue colour palette.
This 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 with a running white and canary blue colour palette, applied to the classic 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.
The adidas Skateboarding x Krooked footwear and apparel collection will be available at specialty adidas retailers worldwide and on the adidas Skateboarding website starting April 21. The launch of the collection is accompanied by a video featuring Gonz and friends skating his custom designed obstacles in New York City, which you can see above. All hail Mark Gonzales!
