Originating in 1949, adidas is a classic German footwear brand with a lengthy heritage in the sporting world. More recently, in the mid 2000s, adidas branched out and took their expertise in technical shoe making to the skateboarding market.

Worn by many skateboarders before hand in the late eighties and into the nineties, popularised pre-existing models such as the Campus, Stan Smith and Superstar. By re-appropriating these classic models plus others from the Originals line, as well as crafting completely new silhouettes inspired by older designs for their professional team, adidas Skateboarding has created a varied range of stylish, durable, high performance skate shoes specifically designed against the rigours of modern day skating.
