Marc Johnson has been cooking up something special with adidas in honor of his signature colorway of the Matchcourt Mid. The trailer was just unveiled today. The full video will be releasing on Friday.
The first colorway for Global Pro team rider Marc Johnson for the Matchcourt Mid keeps the design cues from the brand’s rich heritage in tennis footwear by infusing the classic Matchcourt aesthetic with skateboarding performance. The Matchcourt Mid x MJ delivers a responsive fit, as well as precise board feel and control through the shoe’s vulcanized rubber outsole.
Pantone 542, the official school color of the University of North Carolina, known as "Carolina Blue", serves as the inspiration for the signature colorway of the Matchcourt Mid x MJ. The blue pays homage to Johnson’s home state and skateboarding roots. The Matchcourt Mid x MJ’s pig nubuck upper in “Carolina Blue” perfectly complements the brand’s signature three stripes in white. The shoe also features eyestay construction for durability and to prevent wear and tear; an abrasion-resistant rubber toe cap; and a molded PU sockliner for comfort and impact cushioning.
The Matchcourt Mid x MJ is now available at specialty adidas retailers in the U.S. and the adidas Skateboarding website. The Matchcourt Mid x MJ retails for $80.
