Adidas 3MC Vulc History

Skateboarding was initially a pastime hobby of Californian surfers in the late ’40s when the waves were flat, and they can't surf. It was called "sidewalk surfing" at first. The "hobby" gained enough traction among locals that companies started manufacturing and selling skateboards. The sport became a full-blown craze in the 70s and continued to exponentially grow where today even two-year-olds are seen riding a skateboard.

As the 90s progressed, more and more companies started to realize that there's a market for the sport - one of them is Adidas. Today, the Three Stripes brand has not only established its own skateboard line but also hired pro skaters to be part of a team to endorse and design Adidas products. Some of their riders are Silas Baxter – Neal, Dennis Busenitz, and Mark Gonzales.

Adidas Skateboarding line is a sub-category under the Adidas Originals umbrella, and it offers heaps of apparel and footwear designs that cater to the demands of skateboarding. One of these sneakers is the Adidas 3MC Vulc, which displays a straightforward design and is available in a number of colorway options.
