Is it adidas' Latest Skateboarding Shoe or the Next Big Sneaker Drop for Minimalists?

We couldn’t help but wonder…

Tom Sachs was on to something when he positioned his NikeCraft “General Purpose” sneaker as proudly “boring.” With sneakers as the new collectible, a “more is more” aesthetic has begun to run rampant. (Visualize Ned Flanders’ “Assassin” sneakers and you get the idea.)

But for every trend there’s a sub trend. What would once be marked as “boring” is magically repositioned as subversive in comparison to the bombastic sneaker styles that have gone mainstream.

The next “boring” drop causing excitement is coming from none other than adidas Skateboarding and pro skate legend Lucas Puig. The collaborators reunited for a new indoor skateboarding silhouette that inadvertently could be the minimalist fashion crowd’s summer go-to.

Available in gray, beige and black colorways, the adidas Skateboarding PUIG Indoor is a lighter version of its predecessor with a shorter break-in time. Take a look at the forthcoming sneaker in the gallery above and mark your calendars for it’s July 9 release via adidas.
