Mark Gonzales is one of skateboarding’s true OGs, a guy who’s been kicking and pushing for over a quarter century and remains one of the sport’s luminary figures.

adidas Skateboarding is All In and while this new collection of footwear doesn’t represent their entire team of riders, it’s certainly a formidable set that includes many of Three Stripes Skate’s heavy hitters. We’ll start with longtime adidas repper Mark Gonzales, whose new adiEase colorway misses the vintage Phillies look by the extent to which its scarlet accents are separated from burgundy. The next two come in with super-simple white-on-black suede designs, a new Dennis Busenitz pro model and the Campus Vulc Lo. Last but not least is an equally subdued Columbia blue adidas Skate, alternately known as the ‘Gonz’ for its affiliation with Mark, yet these omit his name in the typical gold foil in favor of clean as can be white Stripes and sole.
