This month adidas is releasing the first-ever signature sneaker for skateboarder Mark Suciu. The Suciu ADV was designed top-to-bottom by the 23-year-old skater, as it was meant to feature a simple design yet retain a lot of personality. The result is a fairly minimalistic aesthetic, albeit a number of the brand’s technical features are showcased throughout in the build.
The heel design was inspired by Gothic architecture, as it then notes “M” for Mark detailing on the outsole, while Vector traction provides with heightened board grip. An inner bootie has been utilized, not only to secure your foot while skating, but to also ensure that the tongue remains in place. Lastly, an Adiprene insole awards you with extra cushioning and forefoot grip.
Courtesy of the video below, you can hear Mark himself detailing his debut sneaker, as you can then look forward to the Suciu ADV releasing on July 31 at authorized adidas Skateboarding providers.
