In honor of renowned skate photographer Skin Phillips, who's been shooting street and vert photography for 30 years, adidas Skateboarding introduces The Skate. This commemorative special-edition reworks the shoe that originally debuted in 1978, now releasing as part of adidas' "Respect Your Roots" tribute series, which pays homage to seminal skate icons. The Skate, featuring a full grain leather upper, suede accents and a signature Skin Phillips woven label, is available now through select retailers ad online. 

In celebration of The Skate, adidas Skateboarding will host an exclusive photography exhibition at Known Gallery in Los Angeles, taking place on Saturday, February 6.
