Japanese Skater Shin Sanbongi Is Getting His Own Matchbreak Super
More three stripe goodness.
Fashion 2m

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: gum sole on a white shoe is a sure-fire way to our hearts.

Throw contrasting three stripes branding into the mix, and we’re talking about a very clean pair of kicks. Drawing inspiration from the Japanese rising sun flag, flashes of red catch the eye on the otherwise muted premium full grain leather and suede upper, while adituff toe reinforcement and gum rubber outsole make these primed for skating. 

It’s the Japanese skater’s first foray into footwear, and in choosing the popular new silhouette for his first adidas rider colourway, he’s making a clean and simple opening statement. Absolute suckers for a gum sole, the Shin Sanbongi x adidas Matchbreak Super gets a huge yes from us. Available this Saturday, 8 February, get a closer look via the flicks  below:
