adidas Skateboarding proudly reveals the Sabalo Slip with a limited edition signature colorway that takes inspirational tones from the personal color palette of the brand’s first female team rider, Nora Vasconcellos.
Nora customizes the slip-on Sabalo with purposeful design elements that combine her two greatest passions—skateboarding and art. As a nod to Vasconcellos’ adoration for the color purple, the pig nubuck upper is embellished with a lavender trefoil logo and ‘NORA’ embroidering. Nora’s own floral-inspired artwork is also printed throughout the shoe’s inner lining. Taking cues from the fisheye lens, prominent in skate cinematography, the overlapping pink and white side panel curves against the shoe’s straight platform, re-defining the look of vulcanized footwear. The new and improved adiprene™ sockliner reduces the impact endured when skating, while the honeycombed Geoflex outsole provides a surefire grip.
The adidas Sabalo Slip x Nora is set to release at select adidas Skateboarding retailers and online at adidas.com on April 5th. Retail price is set at $70.
