adidas Skateboarding has just busted out its second collection with Hardies Hardware, a clothing and accessories brand created by adidas pro team rider Tyshawn Jones and friends. The limited-edition adidas Skateboarding x Hardies Hardware release features reimagined footwear and apparel classics, designed around aesthetics familiar to the Hardies brand.
Leading the collection is the Sabalo x Hardies, a shoe new to the adidas Skateboarding offering. The overall design of the silhouette is inspired by the fisheye camera lens, a staple within skate photography, which can be seen in the curved sidewall of the shoe. Featuring a premium, leather upper, a form-fitting construction and a vulcanized GeoFlex outsole for board control.
The second footwear offering is the Matchcourt High RX2 x Hardies, a sneaker inspired by adidas’ iconic Top-Ten basketball shoe from the 80’s and restructured for skate. The shoe is accented with a premium leather upper, along with a padded collar and suede toe cap for durability.
The custom collection continues with the Hardies Hoodie, which features embroidered logos, all over stripes, and a mid-weight fabric. The Hardies Jacket is a pull-over, padded jacket in nylon with detachable sleeves for versatility. A uniform for the street, the Hardies Jersey is made out of recycled polyester fabric in a relaxed fit with a signature Hardies logo emblazoned on the chest. Rounding out the collection, the Hardies Pants feature a multi-pocket design in a durable fabric with zippers to convert from pants to shorts.
The limited-edition adidas Skateboarding x Hardies Hardware apparel and footwear collection will be available at specialty adidas retailers worldwide and the adidas Skateboarding website starting April 11.
