Since today is June 21st or what is known worldwide as Go Skateboarding Day, we would like to post an article about something that is very important to skateboarders everywhere and that is shoes. The very thing that decides whether you’ll land or bail each and every trick. The last piece of equipment connecting your feet to your weapon of mass trickery.
The latest in skate footwear technology offers not just looks but functionality as well which can be seen in adidas’ latest creation the Lucas Premier ADV, Lucas Puig’s signature adidas skate shoe. The Frenchman was a part designer for this shoe which features a heavy duty suede which is strategically placed in the toe and the forward stripe to prevent blowout from aggressive play, a reduced sole and upper weight which brings your feet closer to the board for an added overall balance, a woven tongue and quarter panel backed with perforated suede provides breathable durability and as if all that weren’t enough, an adiTUFF reinforced toe is added to this model for extra protection and abrasion resistance.
Available starting July 1st, the Lucas Premier ADV will retail for $75.00 through adidas.com and select retailers.
