Adidas cut the classic basketball silhouette low to fit the casual fashion. What made it more casual is its slip-on design which is an exciting facelift to the classic basketball silhouette. Three Stripes' modern take provides a clean, versatile sneaker that has been considered a hit by many wearers and onlookers.

Adidas Originals was launched in 1991. It aims to showcase the 30-year sports heritage of the Three Stripes by reintroducing their classic sneakers to the modern market. This sub-brand is guided by the slogan "Once Innovative, Now Classic, Always Authentic."

Some performance shoes from the 80s were reinterpreted into fashionable, lifestyle sneakers. One of it is the Nizza sneaker which was initially launched as a 70s basketball footwear. This high-top model uses a simple vulcanized shoe made of canvas and introduced with the vintage 3-Stripe branding on the side.

Adidas Nizza, also dubbed as the All-Star of the Adidas, was roped in the "100 Best Adidas Sneakers of All Time" list of Complex. For its more than 40 years of existence in the market, Adidas exerted efforts in keeping the Nizza relevant to the modern market.

Adidas re-launched several variations of the Nizza garbed in various colorways and materials to give buyers ample options to choose from. One version features Rasta-like design all over its upper, and another one adopted the emblem of flight jacket conceiving the Adidas Originals Nizza Hi Heel Zip.

This silhouette was also used as a base model of Adidas' partnership with Jeremy Scott in 2010. This collaboration is made of suede upper added with tassel. Another Nizza x Jeremy Scott item was introduced in 2013 displaying a black upper combined with graphics all over.

As another variation of the Nizza, the brand launched the Adidas Nizza Slip-On shoes that display a less athletic appeal but enhanced to suit the lifestyle fashion. The upper kept the classic canvas materials seated atop a white rubber sole and a rubber toe cap.

  • The vulcanized rubber outsole of the Adidas Nizza Slip-On has a gum rubber sole that provides reliable traction on various surfaces.
  • The rubber toe cap adds hard-wearing durability while boosting the overall style.
  • This model was finished with leather 3-Stripe branding on the side for that legendary Adidas look.
