adidas – SKATE COPA

Skate Copa is a skateboarding story told through a football lens, and is adidas Skateboarding’s tribute to adidas’ 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 the adidas team.

Six jerseys have been created to represent six members of the adidas 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.

Two of the jerseys will be available in South Africa, only at Baseline Skate Shop (Coming in mid May):

Rodrigo TX – DGK

“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



Benny Fairfax – Palace

“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
