Adidas has released this clip for their new Stan Smith Vulc shoe. Smith was a two time Grand Slam singles champion, and apparently one of the greatest tennis players of all time. But not being a tennis fan, I had no idea who he was when I first watched it. The clip explores Smith’s secret passion for skateboarding and features the always entertaining Tim O’Conner and Mark Gonzales along with a host of other three-stripe team members.
It follows on from Nike’s tennis x skateboarding experiments with the re-release of the 1984 Nike Challenge Court shoe last year with Gino Iannucci and John McEnroe. And their tennis classics hookups with Supreme.
Check the clip above.
