Adidas Skateboarding and Welcome Skateboards join forces to create a limited-edition Matchcourt shoe and bespoke futbol jersey. Welcome combines its unique art heritage with the classic detailing and performance innovation of Adidas’ design philosophy.
“I am a proponent of the evolution of both my personal life and my company, however, there are a few things in my life that are constants. Along with skateboarding and art, one of those constants has been Adidas. Probably ever since the mid ’80s I have worn Adidas as my skate shoes and my date shoes.”
– Jason Celaya, founder of Welcome Skateboards
The Welcome Skateboards x adidas Skateboarding capsule includes an enhanced Matchcourt Mid silhouette which features a seafoam blue, premium suede upper, tonal rubber toe cap and a white midsole with a semi-translucent gum outsole. Custom art around the sockliner encompasses the illustrious art heritage of the Welcome Skateboards brand. The limited-edition jersey features Welcome’s trademark owl as well as a few familiar design notes.
This is the second collaborative release from both brands, and is available at specialty retailers in the U.S. and the Adidas Skateboarding website starting May 1.
