adidas Skateboarding unveils the Pro Model Vulc ADV x Tyshawn Jones. A high top version of the Superstar Vulc, Tyshawn’s debut signature colorway marks a career milestone for the New York-based pro team rider. Taking inspiration from the iconic low top, Tyshawn and adidas Skateboarding designers worked closely to reimagine one of it’s most iconic silhouettes.
The Pro Model Vulc ADV x Tyshawn Jones features a python-embossed leather upper and grippy vulcanized rubber sole, as well as the ADIPRENE® combined midsole and sockliner, for targeted impact heel protection and intuitive board feel. The Pro Model Vulc ADV x Tyshawn Jones was also given several performance enhancements offering a more responsive grip and greater control, along with all the impact protection needed to meet Tyshawn’s lofty style of skating.
For the actual colorway, Tyshawn fused color, texture, and homage, employing a luxury inspired snakeskin grain leather, green and white as a nod to the classic Stan Smith, and a tongue detail that’s a tribute to his bulldog, Nico.
“I’m super excited to have my first adidas shoe with my name attached to it. I wanted to create something that reflected my style and at the same time pay homage to my late and great dog, Nico,” said Tyshawn Jones on his debut signature colorway. “My first pair of adidas that I owned had snakeskin on them so I wanted to recreate that for my first colorway. Nico is featured on the tongue so he can always be remembered.”
