adidas Skateboarding is partnering up with Maxallure Skateboards for a capsule collection featuring the adidas Campus ADV, adidas Forum 84 Mid ADV, and apparel as well. They’ve also tapped Maxallure Pro rider Lil Dre to put his eclectic spin on the Forum mentioned earlier.
“This launch means the world to me,” says Pro team rider Lil Dre. ”adidas is one of my favorite brands, and I want to thank the entire skateboarding team for helping me bring my vision to life. The Forum High is my favorite silhouette to skate in, and I enjoyed doing something different and not often seen with the colorway. Plus, pink is my favorite color!”
“It was a no-brainer to let Lil Dre design a few pieces for this collection with adidas Skateboarding,” states Maxallure co-founder Karl Watson. “Him and fellow co-owner Tafari Whittier share a similar San Francisco background as Nick and I. I gave Tafari his first skateboard when he was just three years old. When Tafari was in his teens, he paid it forward by giving his then neighbor–Lil Dre–his first skateboard at the ripe age of 11.”
”That’s why I’m so excited to have partnered with adidas Skateboarding for this capsule. Working with one of the world’s biggest footwear brands has really set a new standard for future collaborations, and is a reassurance that Maxallure is on the right track. It was fun to bring some of the preppy looks I wore growing up into a new light as well.”
The Campus ADV features a black suede upper with the 3 Stripes appearing in white with the heeltab seen in Blue Bird with Maxallure branding. Bounce cushioning is utilized for impact protection which can be seen through the translucent midsole and outsole with Maxallure branding.
The Forum 84 Mid ADV uses a white leather upper with pink accenting throughout and the Maxallure branding stitched on the lateral side towards the ankle in Blue Bird. “Lil Dre” is stiched on the strap in Blue Bird alongside the Trefoil in the same hue and pink accents the 3 Stripes seen in natural suede. Lastly, a white midsole and pink outsole finishes off the sneaker.
The Maxallure x adidas Skateboarding Capsule Collection is set to drop on November 19th via adidas.com/skateboarding with the Forum retailing for $100 and the Campus retailing for $80. Check out the photos below and for all the latest drop dates, head over to our Sneaker Release Dates page.
