Cool – a new Pete Eldridge signature Superstar shoe. Would that be white with three
navy black stripes by any chance?…
With skills and style and a long history of rocking adidas, Pete Eldridge is the new addition to the adidas Skateboarding team. Pete’s been on a mission recently to destroy everything in his path – including his recent Mystery video part, his performance at both Tampa Pro and the Maloof Money Cup, and his part in the adidas European video, Diagonal. There are big things in store for Pete at adidas Skateboarding, including his first signature color way shoe, dropping in 2010. It’s a Pete staple, none other than the Superstar, a shoe Pete has been skating in since way back in the day. His first adidas ad is running this month in fine skate publications and a new feature just launched on the adidas skateboarding website, welcoming him to the team.
Here you go then – the latest Superstar that wasn’t featured in the first monkeyboxing.com feature about Adidas’ summer ’09 drop. It has to be said that the monkey’s not really feeling the black/ ‘electricity’/ lead colourway nor the see-through sole.
Also, Adidas’ first full-length skate vid. Diagonal is now fully stream-able on the site HERE and features performances from a host of Euro skaters including the UK’s very own Chewy Cannon as well as guest appearances from Gonz – among others.
And finally – how about this – there is a skate version of the Campus with a cup sole after all. Don’t bother looking on the Adidas skate site though nor the Adidas Originals section of the online store. Oh no. “But, then in which exclusive sneaker boutique or hardcore underground skate store may I avail myself of a pair?” you ask. The answer my friends is blowing in the cyber-wind – these Campus’s appear to be exclusive to chav chain JD Sports. What’s up with that?
Check out these bad boys! I’m jonesing those fly black and whites big time! Adidas’s decision to reboot the evergreen Superstar a couple of years ago in a slightly phatter skate version was always going to be a winner. It hasn’t always been possible to say the same for some of the colourways they’ve inflicted on us – a few of which have been frankly disgusting. This release finds an altogether more agreeable selection of colour combos however. Keep pestering your favourite supplier though, last time Monkeyboxing’s editor got the heads up on a decent colourway they’d sold out in his size in one day and in three days for all sizes. You have been warned.
