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.
Adidas Seeley Court History
The Adidas Skateboarding established in 1998 as one of the segments of Adidas Originals, a division of the Adidas Group. It creates a set of skateboarding footwear and apparel and supports amateur and professional skateboarders worldwide such as Mark Gonzales, Na-Kel Smith, and Dennis Busenitz.
One of the sneakers under the Adidas Skateboarding segment is the Adidas Seeley – a skate shoe with a silhouette based on a boat shoe. It features a low-top structure in an all suede upper, an EVA sock liner, and a vulcanized outsole for flexible movement and excellent grip and board feel.
The Seeley has been released throughout the years in different versions, including the Seeley Essentials, the Seeley Premiere, and the Seeley Premiere Classified. In early 2017, it yet again received another version through the Adidas Seeley Court.
The Court edition of the Seeley bears a slimmer silhouette and a cleaner and subtler look than the original with its deconstructed leather or suede upper with textile lining. The Three Stripes branding is still there, but presented in the form of perforations. Resembling the original Seeley, the Seeley Court still features a vulcanized gum rubber outsole, a well-padded collar, and an EVA sock liner.
