adidas Skateboarding joins forces with renowned photographer Ari Marcopoulos for the brand's latest collaboration. Inspired by the energy of the Big Apple, the project is connected to a recently released video, which can viewed below, and a specially made zine, "AIGHT." Created by Marcopoulos, the 26-page zine captures select members of the adidas Skateboarding team on a wintery day of skating in New York City's Lower East Side.
The collaborative pieces take the form of the Ari Marcopoulos x adidas Seeley, featuring an embossed full-grain leather upper, with numbered graphics on the sidewall reminiscent of film contact sheet, alongside an "AIGHT" zine cover graphic on the tongue. The Seeley is joined by a reversible bomber-inspired jacket, accented with an Ari Marcopoulos signature pull tag on the zip sleeve pocket. A play off the DIY punk aesthetic is seen on the fabric appliqué of the "AIGHT" cover hastily fastened on the bomber's back. The reverse side has front welt pockets and a bold, allover photo print inspired by the vibrant color pops and pages from the zine.
Expect the goods to launch March 3rd through select adidas Skateboarding retailers and adidas.com.
