adidas Skateboarding has joined forces with BEYOND THE STREETS, the touring exhibition centered around graffiti and street art, to release an ultra-limited signature Samba ADV dedicated to Shepard Fairey. Featuring a clean all-white palette, the shoe sports gold foil "SHEPARD" branding on the quarter panel and an all-over "Star Gear" print on the sockliner. In a unique twist, Fairey's iconic design motifs -- spanning the Star Logo, Icon Face, Star Gear, OBEY Logo, Peace Dove, X-acto Blade and Broken Bottle -- create unexpected left and right pairings that are discoverable only after purchase. 

Bundled with a custom skate deck, Montana spray paint can and other collectible items, the Shepard Fairey Samba ADV retails for $300 and will be available exclusively at the BTS Gift Shop beginning June 9, with subsequent dates scheduled throughout the duration of the exhibition. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Homeboy Industries, a non-profit that assists former gang members through community-based services and programs.
