Blast from the past: a replica of the Venice pit.

Adidas Skateboarding made history this month by partnering with BEYOND THE STREETS (BTS) to resurrect one of the most historically relevant destinations in skateboarding history—the Venice Pavilion. With site-specific installations curated by Los Angeles graffiti legend RISK, the three-stripes brand revealed a fully skateable installation of the sacred site known as one of the original birthplaces of street style skateboarding, as well as the introducer of East Coast “subway style” graffiti to the western edge of the country.
We were there yesterday for media day. Some of these photos will make the older heads swoon… Thanks adidas!
