Adidas Skateboarding celebrated International Women's Day with  an announcement about a dual-release with Pro riders, Nora Vasconcellos and Maité Steenhoudt, that unveils their respective colorways for two iconic silhouettes from the brand’s archives — Gazelle ADV by Nora and Samba ADV by Maité . In celebration of International Women’s Day and the brand’s ongoing commitment to empowering female athletes, both timeless models have been re-imagined and updated for skateboarding.

The adidas Gazelle, reimagined for Skateboarding by Nora Vasconcellos. Sophisticated materialization meets retro details for a timeless look. A White leather upper is paired with a nubuck suede t-toe and heel tab for a high-end finish. The exposed foam padded tongue and Gum overlay nods to classic skateboarding style.

Vasconcellos’ original art on the heel tab and sockliner adds her personal touch to the iconic design while paying tribute to her mother and other female athletes who have fought for equal access to participate in sports with a special story printed on the footbed

The adidas Samba, updated for the first time for skateboarding by Maité Steenhoudt. Capturing the classic elements of the original Samba, Steenhoudt’s design features a Black suede upper with White leather stripes. Wanting the shoe to look better with wear, Steenhoudt added a hidden layer under the t-toe that reveals color as you wear it down.

A handwritten “Samba” and original artwork on the sockliner. Adding to the design is a hidden message on the footbed paying homage to her Antwerp skate crew as well as a subtle nod to her mother and grandmother on the collars. 

Both the Gazelle ADV by Nora and Samba ADV by Maité releases March 16th at specialty skate retailers and adidas.com/skateboarding. The retail price tag is set at $100 USD and $80 USD, respectively.
