6/30/19: adidas Nizza Hi RF Keith Haring
Adidas caps off their Pride Month 2019 celebrations with a capsule pack celebrating the work of legendary artist Keith Haring. Three footwear silhouettes, the Rivalry Hi, Nizza Hi, and Stan Smith, along with three t-shirt colorways feature the signature graffiti style, blocky outline figures, bringing an exuberant, playful, graphic sensibility to these Adidas classics.
The Stan Smith retains most of the clean, open, white space of its standard upper, with the iconic tongue illustration swapping out the tennis champion for a caricature of Haring, while an outline figure is embroidered at the toebox.
The Nizza Hi utilizes the minimalism of a white out, leather upper to showcase an embroidered illustration of a block figure being pursued by a snake, which wraps around the heel of the shoe.
The Rivalry Hi, fittingly for the aggressive boldness of this 80s basketball design, features the most prominent application of Haring’s illustrations. An all-over application of Haring’s designs over a classic white, blue, and orange colorway emphasizes the graffiti/street art background of the renowned artist.
The collection’s t-shirts apply Haring illustrations to the classic trefoil logo design.
A portion of the collection’s proceeds will benefit the Keith Haring foundation.
