adidas introduces the 3ST family – the first shoes of a new generation, born from their creative workshop process in collaboration with team riders.

Apart from the unique new silhouette, the shoes are packed with technical improvements inside and outside. To keep your feet safe and make you skate better the TORSION® system supports the arch on your mitfoot and drastically enhances stability, while modern vulc construction and the Geo ex outsole tread make for improved grip and control.

The 3ST.001 features a breathable knit sock upper reinforced by both suede and complemented by adiTuff technology at the forefoot—strategically placed to protect critical, high abrasion areas where needed to prolong the life of the shoe.

The 3ST.002, a slip on reimagined by Na-kel Smith, features a one-piece perforated suede upper, lined with breathable mesh on the interior, and equipped with a TPU cage for lateral stability.

“3ST is a perfect example of what can be achieved with open dialogue, open minds, and true collaboration between a team of artists in their respective crafts—a bold creation that reimagines the vulcanized shoe in the skateboarding industry,” says Scott Johnston, adidas Skateboarding Senior Footwear Designer. “The best part of the workshop process was involving our skateboarders so early on in the design process to ensure the products authenticity to the team and skateboarding.”
