Palace Skateboards and adidas are collaborating for their first sneaker(s) ever, and just last week we caught a first glimpse of the shoe. Now we have learned that there will be not one, but two new silhouettes as a part of the collection.
First we have the Palace Skateboards x adidas Originals Pro Primeknit that we debuted last week. The shoe features a Primeknit upper in either black/white or white/grey. The new sneaker that we hadn’t before is the Palace Skateboards x adidas Originals Pro Trainer which comes equipped with a construction that skaters are more familiar with, suede. Perforated suede is seen atop the Pro Trainer in either grey/white or an all black edition.
All four sneaker are expected to release at participating adidas Originals retailers on May 16th.
Both of these sneakers are pretty cool, but in terms of functionality, I think the suede construction is better for the skaters. The Primeknit constructed pairs look like they would begin to wear out or fray pretty soon. Great as a lifestyle pairs though.
