adidas Skateboarding x Helas Make One of the Great Collabs


And now for something completely different.

We’re huge fans of a tracksuit and those with the tenacity to rock them. And, this new offering from adidas skateboarding and French skate outfit Hélas is particularly special. Hélas is the creative side project of Pro skater Lucas Puig and his pals Clement Brunel and Stephen Khou. The new range is heavy on the ironic tennis vibes, and the accompanying poses are very much appreciated after a long day of press releases that have the tendency to take themselves rather too seriously.

There’s subtle hints of green and orange to accompany the bright white throughout, and the centrepiece features a custom Matchcourt with a full grain leather upper with the classic three-stripes in a white hue. For added durability, the shoe sports a rubbercapped toe and a classic vulcanized outsole lends itself for maximum board feel and grip. So not only can you rock around like an extra in a Wes Anderson movie, you can also skate in the gear too.

It’s super limited edition, but if you feel like physically sauntering into a store then here’s where you can get the gear: Antisocial Collective, Beyond Skate, Fast Times Skateboarding, Hemley FSC, Kingpin Store Wollongong, Momentum Skate Shop, OCD, Skate Shop, Skate Biz, Skateboard.com.au, Precinct Skate Shop.
