adidas Skateboarding introduced the first signature shoe for Tyshawn Jones in 2019. The adidas Tyshawn, which received an in-your-face collaboration with Fucking Awesome last year, is now being followed up with a second model, the adidas Tyshawn Low.
Speaking on the shoe, Jones said “The Tyshawn Low is the next stone being placed in the legacy I am trying to leave, this shoe has motivated me and I hope that it gives people out there the same motivation when they put it on.” On the design inspiration for the model, Jones noted “I took inspiration from shoes that I’ve liked. I like basketball and other sports, so we looked at basketball silhouettes and took inspiration from the streets of New York.”
The Thrasher 2018 Skater of the Year’s newest shoe takes a much more wearable approach to a skate shoe, using soft grey and white suedes with forest green accents on the Three Stripes and heel tab. Gold TYSHAWN branding and heel detailing contrast the modest colorblocking and encase the shoe’s Adituff toe reinforcement, Adiprene sockliner, and cupsole support system. As an additional bonus, the adidas TYSHAWN features partially recycled materials throughout the model. All told, the shoe is a versatile, supportive, and comfortable skating model that can be worn with ease both on and off the board.
