Adidas Skateboarding is paying homage to the iconic ollie trick by team brand skater Mark "Gonz" Gonzales in the '91 classic Video Days by Blind Skateboards at the now-famous four-block in San Francisco’s Raoul Wallenberg High School with the Aloha Super sneaker.
The model itself first made its retail debut around this time last year and is inspired by the adiStar fencing shoe originally worn by Gonz during his classic art performance at the Staedtisches Museum in Germany in '98. This year's iteration combines a blend of soft suede and premium leather with a salmon-colored Schmoofoil logo embroidery that references the sunset tones reflected in the historic ollie’s backdrop while contrasting black Three Stripes branding on the sides represents Wallenberg’s black asphalt. Capping off the look is a semi-translucent rubber outsole.
The upcoming “Wallenberg” Adidas Aloha Super will be available globally on Adidas.com/skateboarding and select Adidas retailers on Nov. 2 before receiving a stateside release in early December. Retail pricing is set at $90.
