Tyshawn Jones is sitting comfortably atop his trash can throne as the king of New York these days. Coming fresh off of his SOTY win, Tyshawn now has his own pro model shoe and this is only the beginning for him.
The signature pro model lands in July, but Adidas is teasing the launch with an all white colorway that was released over the weekend. We picked up a pair at the private event and are pretty stoked on the shoe so far. The three stripes on the shoe seem to be a nod to the colorway Tyshawn had previously about a year ago. There’s even a gold coin with his beloved dog’s portrait that comes with each pair. Reinforced stitching over the ollie cap provides durability.
The first time you slip a foot in these bad boys you’ll feel a snug grip, a personal favorite for when when picking out a skate shoe. I hate when my feet have that extra room that’s just enough to slip. Especially if they pop off on impact when jumping down stuff. These shoes won’t give you that problem. The only dilemma here is that this colorway is so clean I don’t want to scuff them up. That being said, the leather material is sturdy but its flexible leaving you a good amount of board feel.
