Size and fit

The low-top Adidas Nizza Platform casual shoe is available in women's sizing.  It features the easy-to-adjust conventional lacing system using flat cotton laces. For easy on and off, a pull loop is found on the heel. To further enhance the comfort, this model has been lined with textile.

Adidas Nizza Platform Style

The classic style of the Adidas Nizza Low has been upgraded with an elevated sole for renewed fashion and style. This model is dressed in canvas or leather, depending on the colorway, added with serrated 3-Stripes branding on the side. The elevated sole also creates a distinct look that many women have applauded and loved.

The Adidas Nizza Platform in cloud white/signal pink is made with canvas upper while the Adidas Nizza Platform core black is made with leather. This minimalist skate-inspired kick derived from a basketball footwear lineage is easy to style with practically any attire. A pair of ripped jeans with knitted crew-neck pullover creates a feminine yet rugged style. Meanwhile, a simple dress finished off with this sneaker creates a girly/rugged look.

Notable Features

The vulcanized platform rubber sole of Adidas Nizza Platform upgrades the classic look of the iconic Adidas Nizza Low. The thick outsole gives a few inches to its wearer's height, thus giving an illusion of taller wearer. Platform sneakers have been a trend in the 80s and currently returning as an 'it sneaker,' replacing the chunky dad sneaker trend.

Adidas Nizza Platform History

In 1975, Adidas unveiled the Adidas Nizza model as basketball footwear. The brand released this model as its answer to the highly popular Converse All-Star rubber footwear. Over the years, Adidas has reworked the Nizza Low and has introduced countless variations of this basketball shoe. 

The Adidas Nizza Hi was unveiled in 2010, as the reimagined version of its predecessor. It kept all the classic details of the Low version but with higher collar height for improved support, comfort, and style. Adidas also launched Adidas Nizza Heel Zip, which features a flight jacket feel for its nylon upper. The zipper found on its heel creates appealing detail while delivering easy on and off fit. 

Adidas also used the Nizza as its base model for various collaborations. One of them was with Jeremy Scott using the Nizza Hi iteration. The contrasting graphics found on the upper flaunts the transcendent style of Scott applied to the classic model. 

The Adidas Nizza Nizza Platform Vulc is one of the latest additions to the Nizza collection. This model retained the simplicity of the Nizza model, added with the fashionable twist called the platform soles. This sneaker is made of canvas or leather, depending on the colorway.
