Adidas Lucas Premiere ADV Primeknit History
Adidas created the Skateboarding Project in 1989 and focused on designing products for the Thrashers all over the world. The project aimed at supporting all kinds of skateboarders, professionals or nonprofessionals.
The Adidas Skateboarding line conventionally re-engineers a silhouette from the Three Stripes library to turn into a skateboarding shoe. They infuse sturdy outsole, shock absorbing insole and durable upper suitable for high jumps and flip tricks.
To unceasingly provide a resilient and modern sneaker, Adidas teams up with various well-known skateboarders and designers. Some of the well-known skaters collaborated with Adidas that stood out in the market are Mark Gonzalez, Dennis Busenitz, and Lucas Puig.
Lucas Puig is a French skater and also a member of Cliché Skateboardings since he was 14 years old. He started collaborating with the Adidas in 2010 and released his first signature shoe in 2012. Puig shared that he prefers using cupsoles as vulcanized soles are thin and do not have enough cushioning.
The Adidas Lucas Premiere ADV was released to fit Puig’s skate style. It has thin sockliner to keep the feet as close as possible to the board. Adidas also incorporated some technologies to produce a sturdy skate shoe. Soon after, a modernized variation was dropped in the market. The Lucas Premiere ADV Primeknit was launched using the popular woven material by the Adidas. This was the first skateboarding shoe with the Primeknit upper.
