adidas Skateboarding has teamed up once again with the French skate outfit known as Hélas, founded in 2011 by adidas Skateboarding team rider Lucas Puig and his friends Clement Brunel and Stephen Khou. The resulting capsule is inspired by the Three Stripes' rich court roots and '80s tennis fashion, featuring both apparel and footwear. The latter takes the form of the Matchcourt, built with white full-grain leather with a rubber toe-cap, vulcanized outsole and accenting pops of green and orange. On the apparel side, there's a windbreaker tracksuit, polo shirt, t-shirt, shorts and caps, all featuring the same white, green and orange color palette. Look for the collection to hit select adidas Skateboarding retailers and on May 5.

Release Date: 5/5/17 (Friday)
