This skate shoe is offered exclusively in men's sizing. Women are directed to purchase a size 1.5 down their regular size for a cozy fit. Example, if a woman's shoe size is 7, she must take size 5.5 in men's sizing for a comfortable and secure fit.

The brand incorporated a lace-up fastening system with cotton-flat laces for a lockdown fit. Meanwhile, the drop-in Adiprene delivers enhanced comfort and lightness while the mesh on the tongue and side panels keeps the feet ventilated while doing the daily grind.

The low-top Adidas Suciu ADV II showcases a subtle evolution of the Suciu ADV to fit the modern skaters and non-skaters market. Its upper is made of plush suede with mesh and leather details for added texture and style while the white rubber cupsole provides athletic and stylish vibe. This kick can be paired up with casual ensembles, such as jeans, joggers, rolled-up trousers, or shorts. For a real thrasher's getup, some don this with baggy jeans and a loose shirt with a trucker cap.

Here are the colorways of the Adidas Suciu ADV II offered in the market for buyers to select from:

  Black-white-metallic gold

The suede upper is dressed in black hue accented with serrated, white 3-Stripe logo and lightweight, white rubber cupsole. Meanwhile, the metallic gold Suciu branding is printed on the tongue to add style.

  Solid grey-footwear white-gum

The dark, solid grey shade of this pair's upper is contrasted with white Three Stripes on the side to represent the brand classically. Also, the gumsole gives retro appeal to the overall style of this kick.

  Vapour grey-footwear white-gold metallic

Adidas used light grey tint on the suede upper of this colorway with the white brand emblem on the side. Adding flair to the total appeal of this kick is the metallic logo branding stitched on the tongue.

  Raw steel-brown-footwear white

This blue-monotoned upper is complemented with brown 3-Stripe logo on its side while the white rubber cupsole gives clean finishing and athletic charm.

One notable element of the Adidas Suciu ADV II skate shoes is its single-piece toe box with stitching across for added durability and style. This feature means that this kick has no crucial seams that will tear while doing the critical flip tricks and jumps. Another striking detail is the golden Suciu logo woven on the tongue that depicts his fascination with the Gothic architecture. 

Over the years, Adidas has secured its spot as one of the prime sportswear brands in the market. With its rich history under its belt, the brand has come up with countless Adidas silhouettes that seamlessly turned as iconic pieces in the sneakers world. 

In 1989, the Adidas Skateboarding project was founded which aimed to serve the skateboarding sports. Three Stripes selected Skin Phillips, a legendary skater, and photographer, to be the leading man behind this sports branch. Since then, the Skateboarding project has matured and broadened and hired several big names in the skateboarding industry.

The Adidas Skateboarding project has re-engineered several iconic silhouettes to come up with profiles that are skate appropriate, one example is the Busenitz Pro, which was stirred from the Adidas Samba. Aside from footwear, the Skateboarding project also includes other products such as jackets, sweatpants, t-shirts, caps, windbreakers, and crewnecks. 

To make the Skateboarding branch noteworthy in the current market, Adidas collaborated with several successful skaters - professional and non-professional. One of the big names is Lucas Puig, which launched several pro models such as Adidas Lucas Premier, Adidas Lucas Premier ADV, and the Adidas Lucas Premier Primeknit. 

  Mark Suciu and Adidas SB

Another collaboration of the Adidas SB line is with the professional skater Mark Suciu. This skateboarding footwear line complemented Suciu's highly technical yet effortless riding style and called it the Adidas Suciu ADV. Suciu blended history with function giving rise to a design that delivers classic profile with high-performance features. 

Suciu has shown his passion for architecture and history through his signature skate footwear. He used some architectural details as his source of idea on engineering the Suciu footwear. His love for the Gothic architectural design can be observed in the Suciu logo woven on the tongue and the line pattern seen on the heel and sole.

Continuing the success of his first signature kick, Adidas Originals introduced the follow-up iteration called the Adidas Suciu ADV II. This franchise version displayed slimmer profile with better ventilation and improved seamless toe construction. This shoe will undoubtedly withstand the tough tricks due to the highly technical elements that Suciu and Adidas added to it.

  • The Adidas Suciu ADV II has a cupsole construction that delivers the best impact protection useful during hard landings. While the cupsole is considered more lasting than the vulcanized soles, this construction offers less flexibility and board feel. 
  • Its rubber cupsole has the Multidirectional Vector Traction pattern with flex grooves to provide a reliable grip.
  • The Adiprene sockliner is an EVA cushioning that soaks the impact to deliver soft landings.
  • Adidas used the protective Adituff technology by incorporating rubber on the back of the toe box; hence, gives durability against abrasion.
