Adidas 3MC Vulc Evisen History
Skateboarding has come a very long way from its origins—from the sun-baked streets and emptied-out pools of the late 1940s California to setting down deep roots as far as Japan.
Now Evisen, a skate brand launched by Katsumi Minai in Japan last 2011, collaborated with the Trefoil brand for a fresh take on the Adidas 3MC Vulc, a heritage skate shoe labeled under the Adidas Originals.
The goal was to reimagine the Adidas 3MC Vulc and align it with Tokyo-based aesthetics. The West meets the East. But instead of clashing against each other, the two harmonized to bring out the Adidas Skateboarding x Evisen 3MC Vulc, in its exclusive Cloud White / Scarlet / Gold Metallic colorway.
