adidas Skateboarding Unveils Tyshawn Low


Following the 2019 debut of the Tyshawn Jones’ signature Pro model, today adidas Skateboarding reveals the Tyshawn Low. Further cementing his enduring franchise with the Three Stripes, the King of New York reclaims his crown with a new silhouette inspired by the iconic rider’s prolific roots in New York City and global impact in skateboarding, fashion, business and philanthropic mindset to elevate the community that built him.

“The Tyshawn Low is the next stone being placed in the legacy I am trying to leave,” Jones says. “This shoe has motivated me and I hope that it gives people out there the same motivation when they put it on.”

A nod to his debut signature colorway of 2017, the Tyshawn Low arrives in a premium white leather upper alongside the same collegiate green stripes while maintaining classic skateboarding aesthetics with an added suede toe cap for extended durability. Carrying the same DNA as his debut signature Pro model, an EVA midsole and inner vulc wrap provides continuous support and high-impact absorption for the updated footwear.

As a step towards the brand’s ongoing journey to End Plastic Waste, the Tyshawn Low comes with a more sustainable moisture-wicking PU sockliner created from recycled materials that offers extra breathability and anti-microbial properties.

Rounding out design details is the Pro skater’s updated Tyshawn Trefoil logo mark emblazoned in gold on a form-fitting memory foam tongue for a custom fit providing ultimate comfort. 

At 21 years young, Jones has created a legacy beyond skate as the face of the sport commencing with the 2018 Thrasher Skater of the Year award, gracing multiple magazine covers and closing the climatic segment of Supreme’s “Blessed” video. Jones’ unprecedented industry-wide praise is a testament to the Bronx native’s infectious personality and ability to connect with like-minded people allowing him to expand his brand through fashion, entrepreneurship and philanthropy founding his own Caribbean fusion restaurant Taste So Good, skateboarding hard goods brand Hardies Hardware and many other endeavors. This next chapter in Jones’ multifaceted career will see some exciting projects revealed in the near future. 

The adidas Skateboarding x Tyshawn Low retails for $85 USD / €90 and will be available for purchase starting June 26th via www.adidas.com/us/skateboarding and at select specialty skate retailers.
