History of the Adidas Matchcourt RX

Skateboarding started in the year 1940s. Interestingly, skate shoes were only created more than a decade after this thrilling sport was invented. However, the absence of proper footwear did not stop those who are passionate about this sport from performing their heart-stopping flips.

It was only in the 1990s when global brands, Adidas included, joined the technical skate shoe world. Classic silhouettes like the Adidas Stan Smith and the Superstar were re-engineered by the Adidas SB team to meet the demands of the sport. The Nizza, a favorite of skate legend Gonz, was also updated and led to the creation of the Adidas Matchcourt.

Introduced in December 2015, a timeless high-top silhouette was created with a rubber toe cap for added protection and enhanced durability. It also offered improved comfort and grip.

The recent iteration, dubbed as the Adidas Matchcourt RX, however, removed the toe cap and replaced the upper’s forefront with suede for maximum control. Released in April 2017, this shoe, which flaunted a low-rise profile, remains popular for its high performance and fashion-forward style.
