Mark Gonzales and adidas Skateboarding unveil their latest collaboration with the Mark Gonzales x adidas Aloha Super “Brainwash Victim.” Done in a halo silver, white, core black color combination, this Aloha Super pays homage to a portrait of Mark from the September 1986 issue of Thrasher where he was wearing the “Brainwash Victim” t-shirt.
Featuring a nubuck and leather upper with a reinforced leather and eyestays for premium durability and custom artwork on the footbed and left heel tab, the Aloha Super was inspired by an adiStar Fencing shoe that Gonzales debuted during his historic 1998 performance piece at Städtisches Museum in Abteiberg, Germany.

Following its original release in 2004, the DQM x Nike Air Max 90 Bacon was made in conjunction with the now-closed NYC sneaker boutique Dave’s Quality Meat. The sneaker’s “Sail/Straw-Medium Brown-Sheen” color scheme across its leather and suede upper was intended to invoke the slices of pork belly. Above you will get an official look at the shoe that comes in special packaging that makes the look like it’s wrapped up like a pack of bacon. No confirmation yet if retail pairs will come with same packaging.
adidas has a new colorway of the adidas Forum Low on deck and it will actually be releasing tomorrow. Taking a look at this adidas Forum Low, the sneaker coves covered in a leather upper in a couple of different shades of white to give the shoe that “aged” look. For contrast we see the addition of Hazy Copper on the hairy suede three stripes branding, laces, mudguard, inner liner, and the trefoil branding on the tongue and side panels. A grey suede heel, off white midsole, and a gum rubber outsole cap off the design on this adidas Forum Low that will be releasing on March 5th in Asia for a price tag of $90.
