Watch Gonz Recreate ’98 Museum Performance in NYC


Have you ever seen Mark Gonzales’ 1998 performance piece at Städtisches Museum in Abteiberg, Germany?

Do us a favour and press play above—it’s avant-garde Gonz on steroids.

Done? Let us continue then. In honour of a fruitful two-decade relationship with adidas Skateboarding and the anniversary of his legendary museum performance with German artist Wohnseifer, adidas Skateboarding have dropped the Aloha Super, inspired by an adiStar Fencing shoe worn during his first performance.

The new shoe was premiered to crowds at Showcase X in New York, as Gonz recreated his ’98 performance with custom built obstacles in Aloha Supers and a fencing suit—an ode to the get-up he gave the Germans a taste of back in the 90s. Das ist schön.

The Aloha Super will be available at select speciality retailers worldwide and on adidas Skateboarding starting August 18.
