Following a recent Beavis and Butt-Head pack, adidas Skateboarding has unveiled its next 3MC sneaker collaboration with Truth Never Told, referencing the collective’s East LA influences. The collaboration sees two adidas 3MC skate shoes get reworked in supple black leather and hardwearing sky blue canvas, both of which are adorned with embroidery tapping Truth Never Told’s legacy.
Both 3MCs are inspired by Los Angeles’ downtown hot-rod scene, with the black pair receiving gold tongue and lateral heel embroidery and a tonal diamond stitched heel cup. The sky blue colorway sports a white leather tongue embroidered with contrasting “TNT Los Angeles” typography and tattoo-esque emblems. The heel cup comes in white leather with a navy Trefoil. Rounding off the shoe is a calligraphic Truth Never Told branding on the lateral rear-quarter.
The sneakers sit atop a gum-bottomed cushioned sole unit, optimized for grip, flexibility, and board-to-skater interaction. The leather pair will retail for £69.95 GBP (approx. $90 USD) and the canvas pair will retail for £64.95 GBP (approx. $85 USD). Head to adidas.com and adidas Skateboarding outposts worldwide to pick up your pair on May 8.
