Adidas Skateboarding are officially purveyors of skate loafers.
Those who prefer the “Team Handsome” route will soon have another option to add to their rotation: the Adidas Acapulco. A reimagining of the 1988 penny loafer (of the same name), The Acapulco seeks to round out Adidas’ stylistic design choices by covering all the bases. This slip-on features a full grain leather upper and vulc midsole, but the real winner is in the support – the external embossed midfoot strap keeps your feet snug *and* there’s a molded sockliner. Support, flex and feel.
Pulling from older models and creating a “made to skate” version is something of a trend we’ve seen pop up more and more the last year or so, and for many of us it’s a dream come true. How many times have you wished a non-skate shoe was more suited for the beating skateboarding gives?
The Acapulco will be available March 1 in select retailers and online for $80.
