adidas Skateboarding unveils the Pro Model Vulc ADV x Tyshawn Jones. A high top version of the legendary Superstar Vulc, Jones’ debut signature colorway marks a career milestone for the New York-based Pro team rider. Taking inspiration from the iconic low top, Jones and adidas Skateboarding designers worked closely to reimagine one of his most favorite silhouettes.

The Pro Model Vulc ADV x Tyshawn Jones features a python-embossed leather upper and grippy vulcanized rubber sole, as well as the ADIPRENE® combined midsole and sockliner, for targeted impact heel protection and intuitive board feel. The Pro Model Vulc ADV x Tyshawn Jones was also given several performance enhancements offering a more responsive grip and greater control, along with all the impact protection needed to meet Jones’ lofty style of skating. 

For the actual colorway, Jones fused color, texture, and homage, employing a luxury inspired snakeskin grain leather, green and white as a nod to the classic Stan Smith, and a tongue detail that’s a tribute to his bulldog, Nico. 

“I'm super excited to have my first adidas shoe with my name attached to it. I wanted to create something that reflected my style and at the same time pay homage to my late and great dog, Nico,” said Tyshawn Jones on his debut signature colorway. “My first pair of adidas that I owned had snakeskin on them so I wanted to recreate that for my first colorway. Nico is featured on the tongue so he can always be remembered.”

Full Product Details: 

  • Python-embossed upper
  • Synthetic leather 3-Stripes and heel tab
  • Rubber shell toe; Breathable mesh lining
  • ADIPRENE® drop-in piece combines sockliner and midsole for targeted impact cushioning in the heel, less weight and bulk, and great board feel
