adidas Skate Copa Court, Los Angeles

Yesterday in Downtown LA, adidas held its Los Angeles stop of the Skate Copa Court series. A tennis court filled with obstacles was set up and several local shops battled it out with their teams. After that, the adidas team put on a demo that was unreal before the A$AP Ferg performance. The new adidas x Trap Lord capsule was on display, free Pizzanista was being given out, The Nine Club recorded an episode on site, and the VIP area kept us cool and shaded. Thanks adidas!
