Adidas Skateboarding and Unity are releasing a fall ’20 collection that features gender-neutral clothing and shoes.
Unity, which was formed by Jeffrey Cheung and Gabriel Ramirez in 2017, has continued in its mission to create a safe space in skateboarding for the LGBTQ+ community by operating as a collective, printing press and skateboard company. Now, Unity is teaming up with Adidas Skateboarding, a division of the brand that makes shoes and clothing exclusively for skateboarders since 1998, to bring forth a line that celebrates the queer and trans members of the skateboarding community.
The Unity x Adidas Skateboarding collab will debut Friday on adidas.com/skateboarding and at select skate retailers across the United States. The range features two T-shirts, a button-down shirt, a hoodie, a sweatshirt, a track jacket and shorts. Additionally, the line will include a bandana and two pairs of skate shoes that feature vulcanized soles. The gender-neutral line is expected to retail between $20-$85.
Cheung’s signature illustrations transform classic Adidas staples such as the collab’s two skateboarding shoes: the classic Contential Vulc and newly added Coronado sneaker. The skate crew’s message of “Don’t Be Afraid of Who You Are” is also inscribed throughout the gender-neutral line, as well.
The line also features a number of multi-seasonal items that will transition into seasons beyond the fall and winter. The pastel-hued shorts, shirts, hoodie, track jacket and sweater are all colorfully detailed and feature Cheung’s sketches throughout.
Another notable item in the collab is the Unity Shorts, which are made from 100% recycled polyester fabric. The drawcord waist shorts feature Cheung’s illustrations throughout and are great for all genders, shapes and sizes.
