Adidas Rivalry High Style
This revamped high-top model gives everyone a powerful flash of nostalgia. Men can grace their feet and outfit with the 1980s hooper vibe, which this retro pair emits. Sweatpants, joggers, hoodies, sweaters, and the sort match and accentuate the game-ready Rivalry High silhouette.
Aside from the Crystal White/Blue/Orange Knicks-themed colorway, the Rivalry High is also available in a smooth black and white colorway. With this subtler option, men can sport a more casual outfit such as slim-fit or skinny jeans.
Traditional lace-up closure
The Adidas Rivalry High features a traditional lace-up closure, which has nine eyelets, providing the foot with a customizable locked-in fit.
Breathable toe box
The slanted toe box area is perforated to add more breathability as well as old-school styling.
Adidas Rivalry High History
Adidas has dug into its archives—from the ’60s up to the ’90s—seeking inspiration or silhouettes deserving of a major throwback. As a result, the Three Stripes once again struck gold and brought back one of their most significant high-top models, the Rivalry High. Then the Adidas Originals team worked together with famous sportswear designer Eric Emanuel to reissue the Rivalry shoe. All inspired to remind everyone of New York’s love for the sport.
It was a high-top basketball shoe that debuted in 1986 and was linked to NBA Superstar and Basketball Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing of the New York Knicks. Adidas gave Ewing his first signature shoe in 1986, the Ewing Rivalry, which was dressed in the New York Knicks colors—white, blue, orange. The reissued Rivalry High is available in that historic vintage colorway, along with the subtle black and white version.
