Adidas Campus Vulc II ADV History

In the early 1970’s, Adidas released a low-top basketball shoe with a very simple style bearing the iconic Three Stripes and a signature suede upper, known as the Adidas Tournament. When the brand gained recognition during the hip-hop era in the ‘80s, the Tournament was renamed as the Campus to suit its function as a lifestyle shoe. Beastie Boys contributed in putting it on the map when they graced their “Check Your Head” album cover rocking the Campus.

Taking the silhouette of the classic Campus to a skateboarding shoe gave rise to the Adidas Campus Vulc. It was Adidas Skateboarding’s first vulcanized skate shoe that was introduced in 2008 when the brand re-entered the skate market. Slimmed down versions were later on released known as the Adidas Campus Vulc II and the Adidas Campus Vulc II ADV.

Adidas Campus Vulc II ADV Style

A low-top skate shoe that can take its wearer from skate parks to the streets, the Adidas Campus Vulc II ADV has a heavy duty suede upper in several cool colorways. It looks great when worn with short and pants like any other skate shoes.

Fit & Sizing

The Adidas Campus Vulc II ADV is available in men’s sizes ranging from size 6.5 to 14 in standard width. Both collar and tongue are lightly padded. The lace closure features an extra eyelet on the tongue to keep it in place, and to allow a more secure yet customize fit.

Notable Features

The first three rows of recessed eyelets on the Adidas Campus Vulc II ADV function for added lace protection when skating. The shoe also has a distinct lightly padded tongue that is longer than that in the usual fashion sneakers. The iconic serrated Three Stripes branding is still present in tonal contrast with the suede upper. Lateral to it is the “CAMPUS” text in gold, a feature not present in the first Campus Vulc.

Additional Info

  • These shoes feature a removable molded PU sock liner for the much-needed comfort and protection. Another feature is the vector traction vulcanized outsole with grippy tread design, for an increased board feel, flexible foot movement, and lightweight feel.
  • The Adidas Skateboarding branding is visible on the tongue while the Adidas Trefoil logo is present on the heel.
