Adidas Seeley History
German brand Adidas has been among the pioneers of the footwear industry starting its production in the tiny Bavarian village of Herzogenaurach where the main headquarters of the billion dollar footwear maker still stands today.
Initially, Adidas kept its focus as a football shoemaker and eventually crossed over to manufacturing performance shoes. As part of its growing diversification efforts to boost sales, the company has branched out to other sports like basketball, running, among others.
However, some 30 years ago, when a growing number of interests on skateboarding shoes already gave birth to other brands, Adidas decided to also set up its own. The setting up of Adidas Skateboarding has also been imminent as some of the brand’s most popular designs have already captured audiences from the hip-hop music loving and casual sneaker adoring skateboarding community with the likes of the Adidas Samba and gazelle being used in skate parks all over the United States.
When it was founded in 1998, Adidas Skateboarding then a segment of Adidas Originals produced footwear and apparel for skateboarders distributing these products to a string of skateboarding retailers worldwide.
Among skateboarding greats that have embraced Adidas over the years include Mark Gonzales, Dennis Busenitz, and Na-Kel Smith.
The summer deck low top sneaker, Adidas Seeley, made its debut during the spring of 2011. Built on the frame of the popular football trainer Adidas Gazelle, the casual sneakers blends the brand’s heritage style with low-profile skate comfort. Initial colorways were an all-white and all-black colors that soon improved with new and younger looking colorways.
Adidas Seeley Style
Displaying a casual and street-style vibe, the Adidas Seeley was made especially for the board. The shoe varies in upper material from suede, leather or canvas but the unassuming style it projects remains the same. With a promising durability that lasts for years, Adidas Skateboarding has certainly made a mark of distinction on this particular shoe.
But this casual skateboarding sneaker can also be just for random people who want a comfortable shoe at a reasonable price. Originally released in all-black and all-white colorways, the shoe has now transitioned to a wider audience with more colorways introduced in recent years to suit different moods and styles of its huge following.
Fit & Sizing
As in most skateboarding shoes, the Adidas Seeley runs true to size and has a comfortable snug fit kept tight by a regular lacing. Sizes are available in men’s sizes in medium-D width. Size ranges from US size 4 to 14.
Devoid of any modern innovation, the Adidas Seeley has all the basic necessities of a reliable skateboarding shoe. The sneaker boasts of an abrasion-resistant upper that can withstand heavy beating at the nearest skate park while an outsole made of pivot-pointed vulcanized rubber sticks to the skateboard giving the wearer greater support and control while taking leaps and stunts. It is also lightly padded for ankle protection while the herringbone tread pattern seals the grippy outsoles’ hold on the ground or the skateboard.
- Uppers have a variety of materials from suede, canvas, or synthetic nubuck for every skateboarder’s choosing.
- A tactile rubber midsole provides extra durability as well as superior impact protection on the feet.
- Celebrities spotted wearing Adidas include musician B.o.B. and basketball player Iman Shumpert.
