2014 Debuts: Adidas Stan Smith Cup & Vulc

It’s time to introduce another iconic classic into skateboarding footwear. This time around it’s Adidas skateboarding that’s re-introducing us to a footwear staple.

As many of you know, in the early days of skateboarding, skateboarders were skating all types of shoes. Whether it was basketball, indoor-soccer or tennis, we made due with what was readily available. This act was out of necessity and by no means have we forgotten about our rugged past. Adidas skateboarding has every intention to re-introduce us to shoes that we might’ve skated as our former desperate selves, the only exception is that this classic model has been redesigned, specifically for us.

This amazon green and white Cupsole rendition of the Stan Smith will only be available in select skate shops. As a limited release, you’ll find yourself wanting to skate these but we’d think twice before sliding them across your griptape.

Compared to the Stan Smith vulc, the Stan Smith Skate comes with some direct features from the original model except with a better quality in mind for us skaters. The real difference between the two models isn’t the vulcanized outsole but the foam injected midsole within the vulc outsole. Not only will it make the Stan Smith vulc that much lighter, but it’ll also be useful in reducing the impact from high drops and increase comfort. These models will be at finer skate shops by the time you read this.

Any of you guys hesitant towards trying these out? Possible review? We’ll keep you posted.
