adidas Skateboarding is definitely on it as they created something special for Na-kel Smith, their skateboarding division pro. A special slip-on that highlights a full suede construction in black regalia. The best thing about this release? The embroidered roses decked out in vibrant shades of red. Other key features are the nylon heel pulls, rubber toe caps and a vulc outsole for guaranteed grip and maximum board feel.
The pro skater Na-kel Smith has this to share about his rose-laden sneaker: “A hello to darker tones, and maybe more of a ‘see you later’ to the roses, three roses represent ‘The Brand with The Three Stripes’. The roses also represent where I am at putting out shoes with adidas, a bit of a tally mark.” His low key approach is highlighted through his last statement, “The reason I didn’t blast the ‘NAK’ embroidery across the roses is because I want to make shoes for everyone.”
