Those crazy kids at adidas Skateboarding have once again hooked up with French creative outfit Hélas, this time to give you a summer-as-fuck ‘80s-tennis-hype inspired capsule collection for you to buy and wear and love.

With a Beastie Boys vibing lookbook, the clothes will be perfect for channeling your inner John McEnroe (except he was sponsored by Sergio Tacchini and then Nike) on the streets of whatever British town you live in. Redditch, maybe. Hull. 

Geography aside, the clean white-and-green look evokes Stan Smith, and the collection’s drop of clean custom Matchcourt trainers, windbreaker tracksuit, polo, T-shirt, shorts and headbands will see that there’s a little something for everyone to spill tomato ketchup over this summer.

The adidas Skateboarding x Hélas collection is available from adidas Skateboarding now
