The shoe was reissued in 2015 as part of the brand’s skateboarding collection but with an updated design to make it more suited to the sport.
The new version featured a vulcanized sole, rubber toe design, lace-up closure, and enhanced grip and comfort. It was released in three colorways: black and white, white-on-white, and scarlet and white.
A year after, during the first half of 2016, a slip-on version came out—the Matchcourt Slip ADV. The slip-on is made of a textile upper with a molded PU sockliner and the same durable toe cap the silhouette.
