French country drip: adidas SkateBoarding taps Lucas Puig for inspo

Dropping on March 7 adidas Skateboarding is debuting a new colorway for their Lucas Premier ADV sneaker. The sneaker is dope as colorful pastels were inspired by Lucus Puig’s French beach-town home of Biarritz.

The pink and white striped colorway reminds of us a glittery pink ocean we would probably see on the coastal fringes of Biarritz during sunset while the neon yellow and white colorway compliment the vibes and boast a piercing solar-like appeal.

Puig told adidas skateboarding why he was motivated to move to Biarritz and how the skating, surfing, and coastal culture were an inspiration behind the new colorways for the new Lucas Premier ADV sneaker. He said,

“I chose to move to Biarritz for the ocean. My girlfriend and I came regularly for vacation but the trips were always too short, so we decided to move here to have that holiday feeling all year long. The new colorways play off the town’s color palette comprised of natural and architectural scenery”

These kicks are designed for nailing switch backside flips just like Puig.

A breathable fabric, a suede vamp and eyestay with a breathable knit quarter, abrasion-resistant Adituff toe and a vulcanized cupsole hybrid provide the support and durability any young skater needs without sacrificing crucial board feels.

Additionally, pulling inspiration from archival volley shoes the new Lucas Premier ADV sneakers are a worthy cop for comfort. For sure, Puig is a master of detail on the board and for him, liquid performance is of the utmost importance.

He described to adidas Skateboarding his favorite performance aspect of the signature shoe,

“What I first look at in a shoe is the shape of the toe box, it is the most important detail for every skater. This shoe skates great right out of the box, and has the best board feel.”

These $75.00 bad boys are definitely worth peeping when they drop on March 7. When you’re ready, pull-up to the adidas Skateboarding website, here.
