adidas Skateboarding unveils the Gazelle ADV by Mark Suciu, paying homage to one of the most iconic models from the Three Stripes.
Originating in the ’60s, the classic silhouette’s timeless construction was reimagined with ADV performance enhancements for skateboarding, along with key insights under the creative vision of a premiere Global team rider.
“The Gazelle is one of the most time-tested classics from adidas,” Pro skateboarder Mark Suciu said. “It feels like an extension of my foot. I forget about the shoe entirely and just think about my board. Since I’ve been a part of the team, adidas Skateboarding has helped me travel the world and given me the freedom and support to achieve so much of what I wanted to as a skateboarder. To be personally associated with the shoe, and by extension the legacy of the brand, is a huge honour.”

The Gazelle ADV by Mark Suciu arrives in a college-inspired high-quality green suede upper that provides extended durability and optimal board-feel. The footwear’s eye stay, tongue and heel are made of premium white leather, keeping to the classic feel of the original model. Finishing off the shoe’s aesthetics are gold foil branding accented on the tongue and side sporting Mark’s last name running parallel to the quintessential Three Stripes to cement the enduring partnership between adidas Skateboarding and the Pro rider.
