California is known for its sunny days, but for many residents, they typically begin with foggy mornings.
Naturally, when Adidas Skateboarding and Los Angeles-based skateboard brand Numbers Edition collaborated on a capsule collection, the partners took inspiration from an unexpected source in the West Coast’s early morning haze, but turned something dreary into minimalist beauty.
The monochromatic range of footwear ($90), tops and hats drop on Aug. 4 at select retailers and on Adidas.com.
Adidas Skateboarding team riders Miles Silvas, Rodrigo Teixeira, and Magnus Bordewick co-created the line designed for style and performance.
The custom vintage-inspired City Cup silhouette is detailed by a gray nubuck leather upper on a double-cup midsole and white rubber outsole. Black laces are juxtaposed by a sleek, reflective trim that also appears on the heel tab. Performance features include an EVA-lined heel for cushioning, and mesh lining and a knit collar provide breathability.
Numbers Edition branding is embossed around the counter, and Adidas Three Strips are emblazoned on the side.
