In its traditional sense, luxury isn’t usually a concept you’d relate to skate shoes. A luxe-feeling foot bed and premium supports maybe – but not the type of shoe you could waltz into a marble foyer with and not get any side eye.
However, 2017 is a brave new world. One in which the spheres of foyer-waltzing and bluntslides have been united by adidas Skateboarding’s revamped Acapulco. The archival silhouette has been equipped with the latest in skate-enabling technology, and packaged with all the meet-the-parents appeal of a leisurely loafer. If we just looked at the idea for the Acapulco on paper, we’d probably be mad at it. But seeing how well it’s been executed, we’re mad for it instead.
The adidas Skateboarding Acapulco will arrive at adidas retailers on March 1.
