Adidas launched the Nizza silhouette in 1975 as basketball footwear. This model was the answer of the Three Stripes to Converse's iconic silhouette, the Converse All-Star. Because of its popularity, Adidas recreated this model a few times and has launched several variations over the years. 

In 2010, Adidas launched the Nizza Hi that featured all the classic elements of its predecessor. The brand reimagined it with a higher collar height for added style and support. Later on, the Nizza Hi was tweaked into Adidas Nizza Hi Heel Zip, which featured nylon upper with flight jacket feel. The zipper on the heel creates fashionable appeal as well as it provides easy on and off. In the same year, Adidas and Jeremy Scott collaborated and unveiled the Adidas Nizza Hi by Jeremy Scott that featured black Nizza Hi added with contrasting graphics on the upper. 

Three years after, Adidas introduced the Adidas Nizza Hi Basketball Leather that displayed brown leather upper with pebbled design. This monochromatic footwear is contrasted with a white midsole and gum rubber sole. 

Adding another iteration to Nizza's impressive collection is the Adidas Nizza Platform Mid shoes. This model stayed authentic to the simplicity of its predecessor reworked to create a fashionable women-exclusive piece. This kick is made of breathable canvas upper with simple stitching and branding found all over. This model creates a striking look for its thick midsole, suitable for the platform sneaker trend.
