Adidas Matchcourt RX2 History

The Adidas Matchcourt was released initially in early 2016 as a high-top skate shoe and inspired by the Adidas Nizza Hi shoes. Created for authentic skate performance, it highlights a canvas or suede upper with a distinct rubber toe cap for stability at the forefoot. It also features a Molded PU sockliner and a flexible vulcanized outsole. One of Adidas Skateboarding Team's professional skateboarder Na-Kel Smith, along with the Adidas's next generation athletes, spearheaded its launch. Later on, Na-Kel Smith received his signature colorways on one this shoe's versions.

The Matchcourt also released a low-top version. In April 2017, the Matchcourt earned a modernized version through the Adidas Matchcourt RX. It features a simple canvas and suede upper with a clean toe box, a vulcanized outsole for great board feel, metal eyelets, the iconic Three Stripes branding in leather material, a double-wrapped foxing, and a molded EVA sockliner. 

Also based on the original Matchcourt silhouette, the Adidas Matchcourt RX2 is the enhanced version of the Matchcourt RX. Minor design tweaks were made to address the common complaints on its predecessor. In particular, the rubber toe cap got upgraded from plain rubber to leather with a rubber underneath for enhanced durability. The Three Stripes branding also improved from typical leather in the Matchcourt RX to embroidered Three Stripes in the Matchcourt RX2.

Adidas Matchcourt RX2 Style

A low-top skate shoe with a simple and clean appearance, the Adidas Matchcourt RX2 is one of the many footwear that could take skateboarding and casual styling up to the next level. The leather branding on the tongue and the leather overlay on the toe cap collectively contributes to its premium appearance. Skateboarding or not, men can casually sport it to complete a jeans-shirt or a shorts-shirt kind of everyday get-up.

Fit & Sizing

The heel and the toe box of the Adidas Matchcourt RX2 has an extremely durable suede overlay for extra durability. Its vulcanized outsole, on the other hand, provides an exceptional board feel while keeping the shoe lightweight. The lace closure highlights an additional eyelet on the tongue not only for a firmer and adjustable fit, but also to hold the tongue in place.

Notable Features

Perhaps what most consumers could easily discern on the Matchcourt RX2 at first glance are the lateral embroidered details on the side panels forming the iconic Three Stripes branding. A different take from the leather Three Stripes in its predecessor. The heavy-duty suede upper is overlaid with leather at the toe cap and with suede throughout the heel. The tongue, on the other hand, presents another Adidas branding in a leather badge.
