The brand new silhouette from Adidas Skateboarding pays homage to the brands tennis and court shoe heritage, whilst producing a truly high performance skate shoe at the same time. The Liberty Cup in Footwear White/Chalk White/Hi-Res Yellow has a distinctly retro feel, with a slightly chunkier look than the majority of at the moment. This gives it the cool nineties tennis shoe vibe, as well as the mix of leather, suede, mesh and synthetic fabrics. The main leather toe panel sits next to breathable mesh side panels, which is in turn are supported by an off-white suede skirt along the entire outer side. The outsole is made with a vulc-wrapped cupsole, as well as an Adiprene sockliner and Adituff reinforcement. The over-all look is sleek but bulky in the right places with vibrant Lime piping and a Teal ollie insert adding some fresh colour pops, and signed off with the minimal 'Brand With 3 Stripes' logo on the embroidered tongue label and a subtle Adidas Trefoil logo in gold on the outer side panelling. This shoe has the lot, style, support, comfort and hardwearing.
To coincide with the release of the Liberty Cup shoe Adi riders Heitor De Silva, Frankie Spears and Jamal Smith put it to the test in NYC, from the streets of Manhattan to the iconic Flushing Meadows Corona Park Fountain in Queens.
