Size and fit

The Adidas men’s Nizza RF Lo is available in sizes ranging from 4 to 14. Its low-top built lets the ankles have maximum mobility so they can adapt to sudden and unexpected foot transitions. Also, the pull tab is stitched at the heel area to give the wearer a smoother, quicker time putting the shoe on and off. Lastly, the Nizza RF is equipped with a lace-up closure to lock in the foot secure while providing a personalized fit.

Adidas Nizza RF Style

Made more minimalistic in terms of detailing and coloring, this Nizza iteration exudes a cleaner, more mature attitude than its predecessor. Its canvas upper is as plain, clean, and monochromatic as its sole. It’s a simple, classy sneaker made even simpler and classier.

It’s a great match to many outfits—be it sporty, casual, or, daresay, semi-formal. Tracksuits, sweatpants, joggers, jeans, tees, polos, flannel all go well with the refined Nizza. This model is available in a pair of no-fuss colorways: Collegiate Navy/Cloud White/Crystal White and Clear Brown/Clear Brown/Off White.

Notable Features

Its original blueprint was born of the mid-1970s B-ball era. However classy, the Nizza RF is a retro basketball shoe at heart. As such, the shoe has a vulcanized cupsole construction, which makes it durable and flexible, and a rubber toe bumper that withstands repetitive stop-and-go motion that happens in basketball.

Adidas Nizza RF History

The Nizza is the Adidas’s response to Converse's All-Star. It was available in both high and low-top construction, and it hit the basketball courts of the mid-1970s. For a design that is almost fifty years old, the Nizza silhouette has proven it has aged well, as the Three Stripes reissued the two Nizzas in their original colors and material in 2017. More importantly, the Nizza is among Adidas’s “100 Best Sneakers of All Time.” Today the Nizza comes in a variety of colorways.

That said, it’s just right to explore the potentials of Nizza’s design and to let it evolve. That is what Adidas just did in the Nizza RF release, an iteration veering toward minimalism and maturity.
