Overview of this review
Size and fit
These Adidas 3MCs are exclusively available in men’s sizing. Women who intend to grab a pair should go down one and a half sizes from their original sizing. In short, a women’s 10 should get men’s 8.5.
The 3MC possesses a skate DNA. That means a grippy outsole. With its low-top collar and lace-up built, the 3MC provides unhindered ankle mobility as well as a locked-in fit for the feet.
Adidas 3MC Style
Just like its successors, such as the 3MC Vulc, the 3MC boasts of its straightforward design and function. It looks so basic that it almost looks like a classic staple shoe. That said, as a staple-looking shoe, the 3MC fits the staple choices of clothing, of both sexes. Such as joggers, pants, chinos—and skirts, shorts, and jeans. What’s the secret? First off, its slim, low-profile silhouette essentially looks great on feet and easy on the eyes.
As for colorways, the 3MC has many to offer to fits one’s tastes: Core Black/Cloud White/Silver Metallic, Aero Blue/Cloud White/Gum Red, Collegiate Burgundy/Core Black/Gold Metallic, and more.
First off, the Adidas 3MC almost looks exceedingly minimalistic, and as such, it stands out among most skate shoes, which often look edgy and bulky. The 3MC is a basic shoe, but versatile and elegant in its own simplicity.
Adidas 3MC History
One of the things that the art or sport of skateboarding exemplifies is joy and simplicity in all things. And that is what Adidas looks to embody in the Adidas 3MC, labeled under Adidas Skateboarding, which is a sub-category under Adidas Originals. With the 3MCs, Adidas have kept it straight and simple, as they did in the past, and they were among the ones who did it “simplicity” best.
Nice to know
- The Adidas 3MC has an EVA sock liner, which welcomes the feet with sought-after breathability and comfort.
- Some colorways feature a suede toe box instead of just plain canvas.
