The low-top Adidas Nizza Pride is available in men's sizing. This lace-up kick uses a slightly padded collar and tongue to allow maximized range of motion. The heel pull loop, in addition, aids the wearers in slipping this kick on. To further enhance the overall comfort and soft underfoot experience, the brand used lightweight vulcanized midsole.
Adidas unveiled the Special Edition Nizza Pride to commemorate equality and many colors of love. This model kept the basketball-inspired look added with colorful details to emphasize its cause. Adidas used plain cream canvas on its upper combined with thick, colorful rainbow stripes around its midsole.
Like most low-top canvas sneakers, this model is easy to mix and match with any casual ensemble. This sneaker will surely jazz things up when paired with monochromatic denim blazer and jeans. For a more laid back setting, rocking these kicks with print shorts and plain tees is also highly suggested.
Set to deliver a message of equality, the rainbow flag that wraps around the midsole of the Adidas Nizza Pride makes this pair highly noticeable even from afar. The rainbow stripes on the sole features green, indigo, and violet on the right shoe while the left shoe has red, orange, and yellow stripes. Also, the plain cream canvas upper with Trefoil logo patch on the lateral sides gives modernized take on the classic Nizza upper. The simple upper is finished off with a colorful Adidas label on the tongue tab.
Adidas has been consistent in reinterpreting few of their archived silhouettes into modern, fashionable footwear that suits the lifestyle scene. One of the few examples is the Nizza, which was originally unveiled in the 70s as a basketball shoe. Named after a beautiful city in the south of France, this model features a high-top canvas upper with vulcanized sole for that lightweight and flexible athletic shoe.
The Adidas Nizza was included in the 100 Best Sneakers of All Time by Complex magazine and was dubbed as the All-Star of Adidas. Through the years, Adidas introduced numerous variations of the Nizza by using various hues and materials to keep this silhouette relevant to every generation.
Nizza was also used as a base silhouette in various collaborations. One of the popular ones is the partnership with Jeremy Scott in 2010. This sneaker displayed suede upper added with tassel. A follow-up collaboration was launched in 2013 that featured the Nizza sneaker in black hue covered with graphics.

In May 2019, to celebrate the many colors of love, Adidas launched the 2019 Pride Pack. This pack launched three reworked sneakers - Adidas Ozweego Pride, Adidas Continental 80 Pride, and Adidas Nizza Pride. Each sneaker included in this pack has a rainbow flag, designed by Gilbert Baker, a San Francisco based queer artist.
