Who should buy the Adidas Grand Court

The Grand Court, which comes in a sustainable variant, projects that '70s vibe, all while providing all the bells and whistles of a doozy Adidas sneaker. It's for you if:

  • You like looking your best in a pair of slacks or jeans, joggers or cargos.
  • Venturing into the urban wild in brisk steps is how you roll.
  • You've been looking for kicks that can delay foot fatigue significantly.

Who should not buy it

The Grand Court might not be too forgiving when it comes to fit. In its place, try the roomier Adidas Supercourt. Also, you're better off with the Lacombe if you want something more structurally sound.

Preferred by many

Buyers who like having the side stripes over the perforations went for the Grand Court instead of the Stan Smith.

A fresh leather canvas

The clean leather front of this shoe appeals to those who don’t like the shell toe feature of the Adidas Superstar. Moreover, it doesn’t bear Stan Smith’s mug on the tongue, which makes it quite easy to style.

The Adidas Grand Court's history

Adidas Essentials Grand Court is a modern representation of the classic and glorified tennis sneakers by the Three Stripes from the late 1960s to 1970s in a modest, all-leather lace-up makeup. This updated style is an ode to the earliest set of signature tennis sneakers by Adidas, which were crafted in leather, namely the classic Robert Haillet, Newcombe, Rod Laver, and Stan Smith. These four vintage sneakers turned out to be the game changers in the tennis world.

From the court, these tennis kicks leaped into the streets and turned out to be among the Three Stripes’ casual sneaker staples. Over the years, Adidas has been spewing tons of variations using a broad spectrum of colors while giving birth to new styles.

The Adidas Grand Court is one of the latest remakes of the classic Adidas tennis shoes that come with a clean vintage-inspired silhouette. This sneaker bears the Three-Stripes branding on the side panels. Like most kicks in the Adidas NEO line, the Grand Court is valued greatly for its affordability.
