Bottom line

Wavy lines, high sidewalls, and other precise details flesh out the vintage-inspired silhouette, giving it the contemporary street-wise vibe.

The Supercourt RX is colored in various shades of white, further exemplifying the brand’s half-century lineage of tennis sneakers, such as the Stan Smith. Crisp and fresh in today’s streets, the Supercourt RX has that modern classic look, proud of its heritage. It sits at $140, a reasonable price.

The Supercourt RX shoes are available in both men’s and women’s sizing. It has a low profile, which lets the ankles retain a full range of motion in each stride. That helps the wearer adapt to rapid, random foot transitions. Besides that, a lace-up closure fastens the leather upper and locks the feet in with an adjustable fit.

These sneakers come from a half-century-old tennis heritage, and they share the same design DNA with the legendary Stan Smiths—see the Supercourt RX’s trio of perforations. But this model is fleshier than most tennis-inspired sneakers, almost like a dad shoe.

That said, the Supercourt RX fits into casual, preppy, sporty, and athleisure clothing styles. Men and women can flaunt these sneakers with either jeans or joggers, tee or jackets. While limited, the colorways still present great choices, such as cloud white/cloud white/off white, crystal white/chalk white/raw white, and the special snakeskin-themed colorway (core black/linen/st pale nude).

The Supercourt RX joins in the long list of Adidas Originals. It stands out because it carries a half century’s worth of heritage, which is distilled to create the Supercourt RX silhouette. On top of that, it showcases modern detailing, as is seen in its sculpted midsole and upper overlays.

Setting the tone for their future Originals creations, Adidas launches the Home of the Classics capsule. The collection comprises of ten silhouettes, which were reworked all-white versions. It includes the Supercourt, Continental 80, Superstar 80, Rivalry Lo, Stan Smith, Torsion Comp, Nizza Hi RF, S.C. Premiere, and the A.R. Trainer. It also includes two new silhouettes, inspired by the classics.

The hero silhouette of the collection is the Supercourt, accompanied by its sibling, the Supercourt RX. Both are distilled from Adidas’s fifty-year tennis heritage, aiming to pave new directions for the brand. These fresh Supercourts represent what is best of the brand.  

  • Adidas branding is detailed in the sidewalls, tongue, insole, heel, and outsole tread.
  • It has a pull tab on the heel, which aids on-and-off wear.
