Editor’s Notes: adidas Skateboarding partners with team rider Na-Kel Smith for its latest collaboration, here showcasing the classic Nizza. Offered in two colorways, one iteration represents Smith’s wild side, while the other points to his mild side.
Both the bold green high-top and the black low-top model feature hairy suede uppers, while the green pair is complemented with pink detailing. The shoe also welcomes a cheetah print heel tab and matching inner lining. The black-on-black Nizza is accented with pops of red on the foxing stripe, sole, and branding, while the cheetah print is also incorporated in similar fashion to the green sneaker.
“I like the history of the Nizza, and the look of the shoe. The suede we used feels furry and has a really nice touch to it. It’s also really easy to break in,” Na-Kel explains, “More than anything, I’m appreciative and grateful to have been able to choose these colorways myself.”
Na-Kel Smith’s adidas Nizza sneakers each come with Nak-art custom pins, launching today, August 10.
