Adidas Seeley Court Style
The Court edition of the Adidas Seeley is a skateboarding shoe that functions just as well for lifestyle, casual use. It has this clean, toned down look of the original Seeley featuring a one-piece toe cap, thicker padding along the collar, and perforated Three Stripes along the sides. It looks great when worn with jeans, pants, or shorts.
This Seeley edition shadows the silhouette of the original, but differs to such a degree that minor design tweaks were made. Unlike in the original Seeley, the iconic Three Stripes in the Seeley Court edition are presented in the form of perforations. Such design also serves as ventilation to allow breathability for the wearer's feet. The tongue and the removable insole both present "The Brand with the 3 Stripes" script.
