UPDATE: The Hélas x adidas Matchourt has landed! The Three Stripes colab has just touched down at Alike Store, who have given us a closer look at the finer details of this clean-cut court classic – revealing a glorious gum outsole in the process! Whether you're planning to cruise the streets or prefer a gentle stroll, this colab has got you covered.
Three Stripe skater Lucas Puig and his band of board-riding misfits, collectively known as the Hélas crew, have teamed up with adidas for a capsule collection inspired by 80s tennis vibes. The adidas Matchcourt steps in to cover the footwear component of the collection, done up with durable white leather. The squad’s name is stamped on the side in orange, while some joint branding brightens up the mesh tongue. There’s a full kit of matching tennis whites to go along with the shoes, each piece featuring simple accents of colour in the same manner as the sneaker.
The Hélas x adidas Matchourt will be releasing on May 5, along with the apparel, at select adidas Skateboarding stockists.
