07 Feb, 2013


For 2014, Adidas is stepping into the snowboarding game with a well established team of riders, iconic designs and inspiration taken from their footwear to create snowboard boots with the technology to back it. Over the past two years, they have been planning, designing and developing the Winter 2014 line and it is finally going to be hitting the shelves and judged by snowboarders on the slopes.

They have come out with a team of riders to represent the brand with their own signature styles. The Adidas team is composed of Jake Blauvelt, Forest Bailey, Keegan Valaika, Eric Jackson, Kazu Kokubo and Helen Schettini.

    Hey Shay, did you get a chance to try them on? They look very comfy, but I am such a sucker for something other than traditional laces.

    Hate them! Adidas, Nike and New Balance need to stick to their roots. You don’t see 32 making track spikes…yet! Big corporations need to stay off the slopes!

    Can’t say I’m a fan of the extra tongue height sticking out of the top. Doesn’t look cool/seems pointless
