Adidas Lucas Premiere ADV Skate Shoes Wear Test Review
The new adidas Lucas Premiere ADV takes a new look at the Lucas Puig line. The profile and cupsole construction are substantially slimmed down from the previous model to offer a faster break in with improved board feel. This made Tactics skate team rider Nick Propios feel far more comfortable and confident with manuals and flip tricks. Unlike the average vulcanized shoe, the Lucas' thin cupsole provides the support you need for all day sessions and occasional jumps down a stairset. The other major difference is the addition of mesh side panels. While they offer great breathability, we were concerned with durability. Surprisingly, Nick skated this pair for two weeks without creating a hole. Luckily, the third leather stripe provided just enough protection to prevent a blowout. For a little extra peace of mind, adidas also added their adiTUFF rubber underlay beneath the suede.
