Adidas 3ST.001 History

In 1989, Adidas Originals formed the Skateboarding project that focused on designing and providing quality clothing and footwear line for skateboarders worldwide. The brand became known in the skateboarding realm after two years.

Adidas extensively invested in the innovation of skateboard sportswear to become globally competitive. Being the art director, Matt Irving spearheaded the project as the company collaborated with some of the known and top-notch skateboarders like Mark Gonzales, Luca Puig, Dennis Busenitz, and Mark Suciu.

As Adidas Skateboarding continues to innovate, Adidas listens carefully to athletes’ feedbacks to create footwear that serves the very specific needs of skaters. Extensively tested by skaters to make sure to eliminate or fill in the gaps between the product and their needs, the Adidas 3ST shoes possess a fresh aesthetic without missing out on any of the essential skate-shoe ingredients. 

Part of the new 3ST family of footwear that Adidas Skateboarding introduced was unveiled in March and released in April 2018. The Adidas 3ST.001 has a modern sock-like construction that provides flexibility and breathability.

It also utilizes the Adidas Torsion system technology, which provides a high level of stability and support that is suitable not just for skateboarding but other kinds of sports.  The Torsion allows the rearfoot and forefoot to independently move and stride without straining the feet because of excessive motion. It serves as a lightweight bridge that helps in combatting improper arch flexing.
