adidas San Francisco Demo Photos

Yesterday the adidas dudes came through SF for a streetstyle demo at the Waller ledges. One of the cool things about the event was that they gave all the local shops (FTC, PLA, DLX, Atlas and 510) a budget to make their own unique obstacles. The afternoon was full of good vibes, high winds, scattered clouds and countless tricks by the adidas team and locals alike. Thanks to everyone who came out. —Dan Z
