Respect Your Roots Adidas x Kayo
Adidas recently paid homage to four of street skating's true pioneers by honoring them with signature Superstars. Expedition's Richard Angelides along with Kareem Campbell, Drake Jones, and Joey Bast all received their own colorways of the iconic shoe as well as bronze Adidas Superstars to keep as a memento of the occasion. The launch party for this historic event was held on Saturday March 28th at The Kayo Store in Los Angeles and we were on hand to capture highlights of what turned out to be an amazing evening.
Adidas blessed The Kayo Store with a pair of bronze Superstars to display memorializing the event forever.
Skateboarding's favorite DJ's Ako & Atiba Jefferson AKA The Blackouts spun tunes from classic skate videos.
Kareem Campbell, Jovontae Turner, and Drake Jones helped define style in the 90's. It was awesome to see them all together at the launch event.
