adidas Skateboarding reveal their follow-up collaboration with French skate outfit, Hélas, for a limited edition footwear and apparel collection. A nod to adidas’ rich court roots and classic 80s tennis fashion, the adidas Skateboarding x Hélas capsule features a clean custom Matchcourt, windbreaker tracksuit, polo shirt, t-shirt, shorts and two custom headwear pieces.
Launched in 2011, Hélas was founded by adidas Skateboarding Global Pro team rider Lucas Puig and friends, Clement Brunel and Stephen Khou.
Designed with sleek and subtle hints of green and orange on bright white, the latest adidas Skateboarding x Hélas capsule features a custom Matchcourt constructed in a full grain leather upper with the classic three-stripes in a white hue. For added durability, the shoe sports a rubber-capped toe and a classic vulcanized outsole lends itself for maximum board feel and grip. Rounding out the shoe design is the signature Hélas umbrella and adidas logo screenprinted on the tongue and again on its green insole.
The limited edition adidas Skateboarding x Hélas footwear and apparel collection will be available at specialty adidas retailers in the U.S. and the adidas Skateboarding website starting May 5.
