The Adidas Suciu ADV’s fit is basically the same with the other Adidas skate shoe. But at first it can feel a bit huge, mainly because of the Adiprene insole of the shoe and the cushioning in the toebox. It would also seem a bit long in which those who do not like an extra space in the toe box can consider going down in sizes. The internal cleatie at the midfoot of the shoe gives off a snug fit for the foot. The shoe fairly runs true to size.
Belonging to a skate shoe family does not limit the Adidas Suciu ADV to show its capability of being a versatile shoe. The sneaker can also be worn as a fashion shoe, pairing it up with a casual outfit. The shoe can go with an appropriate street-style outfit and can be worn for daily use.
The whole shoe is designed after the specifics of Mark Suciu, hence it works like a dream for skateboarders. When it comes to performance, the outsole is something to really marvel at as it provides superb grip and durability. Additionally, board control and feel are enhanced with the shoe’s technical construction.
For the fashion conscious, the upper’s neat and simple silhouette comes as an excellent style that can basically take the user to almost any place. It is a shoe that epitomizes what being cool and street-wise is being all about.
Adidas’ first signature skate shoe that is fully-designed by skate pro, Mark Suciu, is the Adidas Suciu ADV. Mark Suciu’s inspiration in creating the shoe comes from his passion and admiration for history and science. Suciu has managed to combine the world of history and the performance-driven innovative design, resulting to the creation of the timeless shoe profile of the Adidas Suciu ADV.
He took a historical view on most of the locations he skates on. He learned every history behind each location and how each history shows relations to the American story.
Suciu’s passion for the Gothic architectural design is his inspiration for the new touch on the signature Trefoil logo of Adidas Originals, the Suciu logo itself, and the patterns on the heel design of the shoe.
Architectural designs have mostly been the source of the idea on how to design the shoe. Mark Suciu’s favourite architects and architectural designs have mostly inspired the details found on every inch of the shoe. The Adidas Suciu ADV basically shows the relationship between architecture and skateboarding.
- Adidas three-stripe logo can be seen on the side of the shoe.
- Suede material on the upper.
- Two members of the Adidas design team, Andrew Sprigle and Rob Carlos, flew out to Philadelphia to work with Mark Suciu in designing the Adidas Suciu ADV.
