Skate Copa is a skateboarding story told through a football lens, and is adidas Skateboarding’s tribute to the brand’s football heritage. As we head towards the summer and the inevitable months of football, adidas Skateboarding presents to you the Skate Copa collaboration; a collection inspired by football and the genuine football fanatics within our team. Six jerseys have been created to represent six members of our team, their country, deck sponsor and of course their passion for football. Benny Fairfax with Palace for England, Lucas Puig with Cliché for France, Mark Gonzales with Krooked for the USA, Raul Navarro with Western Edition for Spain, Rodrigo TX with DGK for Brazil and Lem Villemin with Cliché for Germany.
Baseline will be receiving two of the six jerseys in a very limited run.
ADIDAS SKATEBOARDING PRESENTS THE RODRIGO TX SKATE COPA JERSEY
“The inspiration is from the Brazilian football jerseys of the early 70s and the DGK logo with the hanging shoes was especially designed for this project by DGK. It’s pretty sick.” Rodrigo TX
Rodrigo’s jersey is made from a vintage plaited jersey fabric, which still functions today as it did then back in the 70’s.
ADIDAS SKATEBOARDING PRESENTS THE BENNY FAIRFAX SKATE COPA JERSEY
“It's a remake of the World Cup Jersey from 1966 when England won. The simple long-sleeved style is a classic and fits so well with the Palace logo. Why number 7? Well that’s for me to know!” Benny Fairfax
Benny’s Skate Copa Jersey has taken on the vintage England Jersey look and feel, even down to the plaited cotton jersey fabric.[/caption]
