Adidas Skateboarding’s New Aloha Super For Mark Gonzales’ Legacy
Skateboarding has been around for decades, but for the first time later this Summer it is formally joining the Olympic Games. And while there is no single person or group able to take credit for the progress of the sport, Mark Gonzales would definitely land on any applicable short list.
Often seen as the forefather of modern-day skateboarding, “The Gonz” has seen and done everything in his three decade-long career. But for its newest Aloha Super, adidas Skateboarding focuses on two specific events: the 2018 recreation of his unorthodox performance at the Städtisches Museum, Germany in 1998.
Inspired by the adiStar fencing pair, the Aloha Super innately honors the legacy of the native Hawaii, but this muted-grey version goes a step further. Built with luxury suede and full grain leather, the skate-model uppers borrow their unusual style from the “Gonz” fencing suit haphazardly painted “Black” for its anniversary performance at Milk Studios.
Apart from that, the lavender Shmoofoil and the script “MG” logos on the tongue and heel respectively tie the pattern further to Gonzales. Nylon lace join adiPrene sock liners and sticky rubber outsoles, all dressed in the DIY-grey, to round off the skate ready choice of the Three Stripes, for durability and board feel.
