Adidas Jake Blauvelt Boot Style
The Adidas Jake Blauvelt Boot is ideal for winter use. For fashion use, pair the shoes with jeans and a warm jacket. If you intend to use the footwear for snowboarding, do remember to layer up and avoid cotton clothing. The first layer should be a fabric with wicking power to keep you dry. The second layer could be made of fleece and be either a sweatshirt, pullover, vest, or sweater. Your last layer of protection should be your pants and jacket.
Adidas Jake Blauvelt Boot History
In 2011, Jake Blauvelt, a renowned backcountry snowboarder, and his agent were looking for a potential boot sponsor. They emailed Adidas, a brand which has never before that moment produced snowboard boots. By coincidence, Adidas was at that time also looking for a snowboarding athlete they could endorse. Nike’s success in the sport spurred Adidas to open their own snowboarding line.
The email led to a contract between Adidas and Blauvelt for a three-model signature boot collection for their soon-to-launch snowboarding line. Along with Blauvelt, the brand also signed up Kazu Kokubo, Eric Jackson, and Forest Bailey.
A year after the contract, in October of 2012, Adidas released the first model in their Snowboarding line—the Jake Blauvelt Boot. The Boot blended modern materials with a classic hiking boot style. It was specifically designed to provide the comfort of a sneaker while giving the protection of a boot. It was also made to withstand any storm or trail. The gusseted tongue and the leather fabric used would keep the warmth in while keeping the snow out.
This release was followed by the Jake Blauvelt 2.0.
