Is the adidas Superstar good for skateboarding?
For skateboarders, the materials of the sneakers are just as important as their aesthetic. Everyone wants durable kicks, and brands know it, so they work with leather and suede. But how to choose? Suede is softer and quite adaptable, you will probably feel your feet lighter. Leather is certainly more resistant, but it is possible to work with both materials after they're treated.
We chose some dope adidas snkrs to help with your choice, like the comeback of the Superstar ADV with Tyshawn Jones' — best skater of 2018 btw — signature. Made of black suede, it has details in scarlet and gold and rounds out the shoe with shell toes and sole unit that have been optimized for skating.
Adidas skateboarding had already brought the Superstar in 2019 with Metropolitan rebooting the '80s design. The brands chose details in green and Italian snakeskin with the classic gold badges subtly marking the premium leather upper.
Another design that skaters enjoy is the Adi-Ease Premiere. It has earned a reputation for giving skateboarders a certain swagger. Made of a strong suede, it's quite versatile and flexible, guaranteeing precision in skateboarding.
For bold skaters, Adidas launched the meter-long Superstar with Estonian rapper Tommy Cash. These extra-long sneakers went viral on social media, and we get it, black and white is always a classic. 😅
