Spencer Hamilton is the latest Pro + Am feature, he gives the Ellington Pro model a once over. More details below.
Spencer Hamilton’s Ellington colorway has a black suede upper with black, open cell mesh side panels, fluorescent orange accents, padded fluorescent orange mesh lining, black and orange rope laces, and it’s built on a translucent white outsole with a lightweight, speckled black/orange SUPRAFOAM midsole. Each pair comes with a custom PRO + AM sock liner and hang tag.
“I’ve been on a bunch of trips with him,” Erik said about Spencer, “and I’m blown away every single time I skate with him. He’s one of the coolest, mellowest dudes around and he’s always in control and on point. I’m proud to share a shoe in the PRO + AM Collection with him. He came up with a colorway that kills it.”
“It’s just a straight honor,” Spencer said about doing a shoe with Erik. “I’ve always liked what Erik does as far as skating, he has a great personality, great character. I mean his part in the Thrill of it All was probably the first part I ever saw. I used to watch that part all the time.”
Spencer was vague about the influences for his PRO + AM colorway, but he did cite at least two references that are evocative of his native Canada: the fluorescent orange of a hunter’s vest and the net of a hockey goal. “Yeah, you’re not getting shot,” Spencer said regarding the fluorescent orange accents. “At least not in the feet.”
