Respect Your Roots: Skin Phillips by adidas Skateboarding


Adidas recently paid tribute to legendary skate photographer and adidas skateboarding team manager Skin Phillips with a Gallery show featuring his 30 year contribution to the culture, Respect Your Roots feature (seen in the video above) and his own shoe!… HIS OWN SHOE! In the skate game that’s without a doubt the biggest honour and so much deserved. Wanna know my favourite part? He’s Welsh, from Swansea and still has a Welsh accent. My folks are Welsh although neither are from Swansea and I grew up visiting Wales and have always loved it. His mom’s accent reminds me of so many people I knew growing up and going to a Welsh Church. Anyhow I digress, check out the above and enjoy.
