adidas Skateboarding‘s second collaboration with French skate brand Hélas draws inspiration from vintage tennis and Japanese anime. The limited edition capsule is the perfect portrayal of Hélas’ nonchalant aesthetic, featuring pastel-colored sneakers, polos, and pants, among other items.

First off, the Lucas Premiere x Hélas shoe boasts an eggshell colorway, then noting a premium leather upper, reinforced toe, leather heel cap, textile lining, and grippy outsole. Anime-specific branding takes over the insoles to round out the design details.

Alongside the footwear, adidas Skateboarding and Hélas complement with a matching jacket, pants, Climalite advanced polo, T-shirt, four-panel cap, and modern duffel bag.

adidas Skateboarding and Hélas’ latest collection is due at specialty adidas retailers worldwide as well as online beginning February 10.

Just last month adidas Skateboarding debuted its ’90s-inspired City Cup sneaker.
