This particular set of kicks was created as an ode to Silas Baxter-Neal, one of the smoothest skaters around. It would make sense that Adidas would create a pair of smooth kicks for Silas, and even give a shout-out to his home state of Oregon.
As an individual that grew up in the state of Oregon I’m particularly fond of these – even though I don’t skate. The small Oregon “license plate” on the back and the image of the beaver on the tongue are especially nice touches.
You can snag your own pair of these Rod Laver “Silas” kicks over at Flatspot.
