Mark ‘The Gonz‘ Gonzales has been a part of the adidas skateboarding family for well over a decade, paving the way for a generation of fashion-forward skaters. Coinciding with his 15 year anniversary exhibition, his latest project with adidas is the “15 years of Gonz” capsule collection featuring footwear and apparel.
Heavily involved in the creative and manufacturing process, each piece is inspired by his own wardrobe. The shoes imitate Mexico Olympics’ Azteca track spike, featuring a low outsole for better board grip. His distaste for shoes with laces was also kept in mind. All graphics were drawn by the man himself and you can now view the collection at the adidas Skateboarding site.
