Adidas Matchcourt Primeknit History
Skateboarding was born out of Californian surfers' boredom, as they can't ride their surfboards because the waves were flat. This group of surfers was finding a way to pass the time and came up with "sidewalk surfing," also known today as skateboarding. Although created in the late 40s, skateboarding did not become popular until the 70s. It became so well-known that brands and companies started to take notice by creating merchandise that catered to skateboarding's demands.
One of the companies that took notice is Adidas. The brand eventually expanded its categories and created a collection especially dedicated to skateboarding in 1989. Adidas Skateboarding started out by remodeling past shoe models into skateboarding-equipped footwear then finally dishing out original silhouettes with help from the brand's pro-skate team. These professional skateboarders collaborated with Adidas to create fresh and authentic footwear for skaters, by skaters.
One of the many skate shoes produced by Adidas' Skateboarding line is the Matchcourt. Skateboarders loved it because of its sleek design and protective toecap. In 2017, the brand released a Primeknit version of the Matchcourt. Although not built for tricks, its comfort, lightweight, and breathable fit make for a great everyday shoe.
