Mark Gonzales adidas Aloha Super Wallenberg skate shoe exclusive

Mark Gonzales adidas Aloha Super Wallenberg skate shoe exclusive to Black Sheep.

 

 

Inspired by Mark Gonzales’ 1991 christening of a spot that has gone on to be legendary in skate culture, we are proud to announce that The Black Sheep are one of only two UK retailers stocking the adidas Aloha Super Wallenberg skate shoe. Dropping tomorrow, (November 2nd), this exclusive number will fly off the shelves so if you’re down, don’t hang about – go grab your adidas Aloha Super Wallenberg skate shoes right now.

Based on the super popular adidas silhouette first released as the Mark Gonzales Aloha Super last year, this adidas Aloha Super Wallenberg skate shoe updates that initial release with several nods to the context of Gonz’s paradigm-shifting ollie grab down Wallenberg’s big four back in 1991. The pink insoles and Scmoofoil logo on the tongue reference both the great man’s distinctive art work and the sun-drenched context to Gonz’s first big four conquest as seen in probably the greatest skate video every made – the masterful 1991 Blind ‘Video Days’. Similarly, the iconic black Three Stripe graphic on the lateral midfoot nods to the less than forgiving black asphalt that composes the floor at Wallenberg itself.
The overall shape of the Mark Gonzales adidas Aloha Super Wallenberg skate shoe also refers back to the adiStar fencing shoe, as memorably rocked by the man himself during his now infamous 1998 performance art piece in Mönchengladbach, Germany (see below).

 

 

 

 

We’re so hyped to be one of only two UK retailers stocking this homage to skateboarding’s greatest that we figured it was a good enough excuse to remind you all of a few bits of Wallenberg history as well.
If you peep the video embedded at the top of this page, you’ll see a fairly comprehensive overview of some of the most note worthy bangers to have gone down since Gonz first ollie grabbed the big four nearly 30 years ago. Everyone will have their own favourites no doubt but, as with most things in skate history, it all started with Mark Gonzales.

For those of you who might not have seen Gonz’s ‘Video Days’ section – dive in now and fill your eyeballs with 30 year old time traveling. This video part changed skateboarding forever.
(The Wallenberg ollie grab is at 2:32).

We’d be slipping if we didn’t also include Thrasher Magazine‘s Back to the Berg (2009) event video here too.
This one followed up their original 2004 Wallenberg event and served as a reminder to people of just how fucking crazy Wallenberg’s big four is. With Phelps in charge, this school-sanctioned carcass tossing frenzy cemented itself in skate history, with NBDs dropping like hammers from a greasy tool box.

 

 

 

 

Since then, the big four at Raoul Wallenberg Traditional High School in SF still hold their position as one of skateboard culture’s most recognisable spots and is still regularly hit up nearly 30 years since Gonz set the bar.

If the geeks among you crave more stats on this asphalt behemoth, Jenkem Mag put together a funny interview with the big four here, along with measuring Wallenberg so you don’t have to.

 

 

One final thing absolutely worth mentioning here is that the Raoul Wallenberg high school in SF, the one you know about because of skateboarding culture, is actually named after a real person. Raoul Wallenberg was a Swedish architect and businessman who is credited globally for personally saving tens of thousands of Jewish people from death during WWII. His story is incredible – read more here: Raoul Wallenberg

Adidas Skateboarding has been spicing up production lately. They recently dropped the new 3ST series on us. Now, Adidas is set to release a new type of skate shoe, the 3MC.

 

Adidas set an objective to make a high performing skate shoe that could also be worn for everyday use. Aesthetically, the 3MC takes inspiration from the iconic Gazelle silhouette, which Adidas considers to be one of the most influential styles in their archives. The 3MC has it’s classic Adidas exterior, while at the same time being a durable skate shoe. This is thanks to it’s new Geoflex outsole and reinforced triple-needle stitch. The Adidas team have skated and approved the 3MC’s.

 

In other words, the 3MC combines iconic design elements from Adidas heritage with modern performance in mind. By marrying these two elements Adidas gives life to the ultimate all purpose shoe.

Adidas – ‘Far and Away’ Episode 1

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

 

 

To hype up the new Adidas Skateboarding video, Away Days, Adidas and their infamous skate team/crew have put together a few episodes called Far and Away. Far and Away is a behind the scenes edit looking into all the happenings whilst the guys were out on tour filming for skateboarding’s next biggest video, Away Days. I was quite shocked after watching this as all I was expecting to see was the guys chilling/searching for spots. What I didn’t expect to see was some footage that in my eyes, could’ve easily of the made the Away Days video. We must be in for something special as these are just off-cuts. Have a watch of the first episode above to gather an understanding of what life is like on the road whilst searching for the best terrain to bag themselves some stunts for the video. I’m excited, I’m hoping everyone else is.

P.S. There’s a Gonz trick featured, what more do you need!
