Away Days is the culmination of more than three years of filming, spanning over 90 cities around the world profiling the adidas Skateboarding team and their unique skateboarding abilities. Not unlike the keys to a grand piano, adidas has a diverse international and domestic team creating a full symphony of style and personality.
The title Away Days was conjured by adidas US Team Manager and iconic photographer Skin Phillips. The film’s title is derived from a British futbol term “Away Days’ signifying the comradery of futbol teams and their fans while traveling on the road to rival stadiums. The film anchored by a diverse team comradery, breadths a creative spirit and dedication to the art of skateboarding and filmmaking.
Founded in 1998, adidas distributes to a global network of skateboarders and retailers. Adidas Skateboarding is a segment of adidas Original, a division of adidas Group.
