The Matchcourt RX ($70) features a low-top profile and minimalist design details. The sneaker incorporates a black suede and clear granite canvas upper on a flexible vulcanized outsole, comfy textile lining and a molded EVA sockliner.

The shoes are available at select specialty Adidas retailers and on Adidas.com/skateboarding.
