The Sabalo Silhouette Joins the adidas Skateboarding Shoe Range
The model is inspired by the fisheye lens which is a popular cinematic approach when filming a skate edit. The style nods to this through Sabalo’s foxing tape. Moreover, Diego Nájera was interested in creating a minimalist and sophisticated silhouette, hence the shoe is cream-colored with contrasting branding embellishments and its construction is informed by a pair of Raf Simons x Stan Smiths that the skater is very fond of.
Like other adidas Skateboarding shoes, the Sabalo does not sacrifice functionality for aesthetics. The silhouette boasts a vulcanized sole, a sticky geoflex rubber outsole, and an improved adiprene sock liner — all features that ensure durability, grip, and support.
