Adidas will be bringing back this summer another classic from their vault, the adidas Originals Nizza. This model was originally released in 1975 as a basketball shoe, having a construction that reminded us of the Converse All Stars, with a canvas upper and vulcanized sole unit. The side stripes and branding gave it a specific touch but the brand mostly stayed away from this approach with their other classics. Over time there have been sporadic appearances, without a whole lot of hype.
This 2017 release of the adidas Originals Nizza OG include a low and a hi top version, both in the original white and blue colorway, one that identifies with the brand so much. The sole unit is outlined with a thin blue stripe that matches the upper overlays. The metal eyelets on both of the pairs gives it a nice touch on an otherwise simple design. The official release date is June 29th, with the low top retailing for $75 and the hi top for $80. Will this be the big start of the adidas Originals Nizza comeback?
