When Max Fish first opened on Ludlow Street in 1989, it quickly became a favored hangout of downtown skateboarders.

Now, years removed from its original location, the rebooted dive bar has teamed up with adidas to create a “super limited run” of skater kicks. Dubbed “Max Fish Campus ADV,” the collaborative shoe comes with a navy suede upper, screen-printed red polka dot infill, and emblazoned with the venue name. The design pays homepage to the blue-and-red polka dot Max Fish motif.

The collaborative sneaker launches July 12, but good luck snagging a pair. It’s a limited run and available exclusively through select national skateboard retailers and Max Fish. A party is also planned, naturally.

Next Sunday (July 14), adidas and Max Fish are hosting a private fete that will “gather friends, family and members of the local skate and art community who have been a part of the bar’s thirty-year legacy.”

As an aside, next month also marks the fifth anniversary of Max Fish relocating from Ludlow to 120 Orchard Street.
