Having recently launched a signature shoe for Nora Vasconcellos, adidas skateboarding is ready to release its next full collection with the help of cult skater outfit, Maxallure.

Additionally, Watson and Lockman tapped Pro Team co-owner and rider Lil Dre for a contribution to the collection, which promotes a “Think Beautiful Thoughts” message. The results ? : Modified pairs for skating adidas Forum 84 and iconic adidas Campus.

“This launch means the world to me,” Lil Dre said in an official press release for Maxallure’s collaboration with the Three Stripes. “adidas is one of my favorite brands, and I want to thank the whole skateboard team for helping me bring my vision to life. The Forum High is my favorite silhouette to skate on, and I liked doing something different and not often seen with the colorway. Plus, pink is my favorite color!

MXA Dre’s Forum 84 ADV features a predominantly white color scheme, though pink flair enters the mix through the inner lining, profile 3-Stripe branding and underfoot cupsole traction. “Lil Dre” is chain-stitched on the locking strap around the ankle, cementing the model’s mark in adidas history. As another nod to varsity jackets popularized decades ago, Maxallure’s “MXA” branding is embroidered on the side ankle, while the numbers “8” and “4” are embossed on the left and of the heel.

In contrast, MXA’s Campus ADV takes the expressiveness down several notches. In keeping with traditional adidas Skateboarding options, the shoe features black-colored suede throughout the upper, with the only interruptions coming in the form of off-white branding on the profiles, shimmering gold “CAMPUS” text on the lateral side and a striking blue panel on the back. Maxallure’s three-letter branding is highlighted underfoot, visible through the icy outsole for a design that mimics gym court logos. The collection’s “Think Positive Thoughts” slogan is printed on the insoles of the modified basketball shoe as a finishing touch.
