adidas Skateboarding announces Rider Series—a monthly installment of footwear, co-designed by its team. Tapping into its celebrated riders, Miles Silvas, Jake Donnelly, Na-Kel Smith, Diego Najera, Chewy Cannon, Silas Baxter-Neal and Blondey McCoy will each add their personal touch to some of the brand’s most iconic silhouettes. Each updated style commemorates the dedicated rider, revealing an array of unique signature colorways and materials.
Co-created with Miles Silvas, the Rider Series kicks off with Silvas’ touch on the 3ST.004. Silvas enhances the model with a striking golden-yellow colorway set on a soft nubuck upper, met with a breathable mesh overlay and a tough, wraparound rubber outsole to endure any session. The dynamic skate shoe also receives the ultra-responsive BOOST technology into the midsole for outstanding shock absorption and all-day energy return. The low profile shoe comes complete with iconic black three-stripes and heel tab emblazoned with Silvas namesake.
“Having my name on the back of the shoe is insane,” says Silvas. “I like the boost in the heel – the tongue and side straps too. It makes the shoes fit super snug yet super flexible right out of the box, so you don’t have to waste any time breaking them in. The golden colorway was inspired by a pair of old Gazelles I really wanted growing up.”
Each month will bring a fresh and unique take on select silhouettes from each rider in the series celebrating expression and creative vision reflective of the diverse skate team. The ‘Miles Silvas 3ST.004’ will be available at specialty retailers worldwide and on the adidas Skateboarding website starting June 8th and will retail for $120 USD.
