adidas Basketball reintroduces the Rivalry for FW23, establishing the shoe as the next icon of adidas Basketball culture. Different from other adidas classics, the Rivalry sports full body colors, mustache pops and piping, sole color blocking, and a strapless lifestyle-basketball silhouette.
Worn on the hardwood by NBA greats, the Rivalry was introduced as the true pinnacle basketball shoe of the 80s. The model evolved into many iterations all rooted in the same design ethos and has since transcended off the hardwood to become a bridge between fashion, street, and sport.
The adidas Basketball Rivalry is available now in select retailers and online from R1999.
