Shin’s love of surfing is well known – his first Polar Skate Co. board even featured a surf shape. Less known is his passion for football, which he excelled at as a kid, even travelling all the way from Japan to Barcelona to play at a young age. For his second adidas colour way, Shin chose the Campus ADV, a clean and understated adidas staple, reflecting his clean and understated approach to skateboarding. Shin’s passion for football is reflected in the deco-stitch details across the upper, taken from classic adidas football boots.
The Campus ADV updated to Shin’s preferences. The upper is a black leather that skates through to reveal a different colour, night green, the same colour as the tongue. Shin prefers the Campus ’80s tongue, so we included that on a Campus ADV for the first time. The deco-stitch details that are featured across the upper come from classic adidas football boots, reflecting Shin’s passion for the sport. The sockliner features a handwritten note from Shin in Japanese saying “Have Fun,” which sits nicely next to a smiling portrait of Shin on the tongue, inspired by Stan Smith branding.
The shoe releases in store and online this Saturday.
