Size and fit

The Adidas Rivalry RM Low is available in a regular fit for both men's and women's sizes. This low-top shoe is made with a soft, smooth, supple leather with the traditional lace-up closure which helps in keeping the wearer’s foot in place while offering an overall comfort. 

For the sole, it is made with a rubber outsole added with a Boost midsole which returns the energy while on the go. 

Adidas Rivalry RM Low Style

The Adidas Rivalry RM Low is a sporty streetwear sneaker that takes inspiration from the 1980s basketball sneaker style. This classic silhouette comes in with two tri-color themes for its colorways.  One is the cloud white with blue and red stripes for at the sides and the other is the bold black with white and gold, both giving a vintage vibe.

This sneaker is also perfect to pair up with a shirt or a loose sweatshirt for the top and jeans or shorts for the bottom which completes that casual look one is up for. 

Notable Features

The sporty streetwear shoes from Adidas' Rivalry collection are perfect examples of silhouettes that radiate a past-meets-present look. While it has that trendy ‘80s look, Adidas Rivalry RM Low is fused with modern Boost technology. This upgrade helps in boosting its overall appeal as it has both the style and comfort one needs.

Adidas Rivalry RM Low History

Adidas has been bringing not just performance shoes, but also the classics. Adidas Originals was first launched back in 2001. It houses both lifestyle and heritage products with the iconic Three Stripes silhouette. Besides the classic silhouettes, it added modern-day technology catering to the needs of the market. A number of their collaborations can also be found here. 

One of the well-known technologies Adidas has added to its shoes is the Boost cushioning technology. Though it was not widely known back when it was first introduced in 2013, it made its breakthrough after the long-distance runner Dennis Kimetto ran with a pair of Adizero Adios Boost in September 2014. It was also introduced into the fashion world through Y-3’s designs. Continuous innovations have been made up to this day improving the cushioning and energy return that the Boost has to offer.

Lately, Adidas has released more hybrid silhouettes on the line. One of which is the Rivalry RM Low. Just like the Adidas Rivalry RM, it takes inspiration from the ‘80s design boasting that classic look. It also has the responsive Boost midsole providing great cushioning and energy return without sacrificing the style.
