Adidas’ Rose-Embroidered Slip-Ons Are A Sleek Twist on Skateboarding Shoes

Built for performance — and style — Adidas Skateboarding’s new Matchcourt Slip sneakers present a sleek new twist on the silhouette’s court heritage.

Featuring embroidered red roses on a black suede upper, the slip-ons, designed by pro rider Na-kel Smith, dropped today at specialty retailers and adidas.com/skateboarding for $70.

The kicks incorporate a nylon heel pull, a rubber toe cap that increases durability and a vulcanized outsole that improves conditions for grip and board feel.

It’s Smith’s third collaborative colorway for the lifestyle brand and a nod to his partnership.

“A hello to darker tones, and maybe more of a ‘see you later’ to the roses, three roses represent ‘The Brand with The Three Stripes,'” Smith explained in a statement. “The roses also represent where I am at putting out shoes with Adidas, a bit of a tally mark.”

Along with Smith’s new sneaker, Adidas Skateboarding also released today the Matchcourt High RX2 — a performance sneaker inspired by the brand’s iconic Top Ten basketball shoes that debuted in 1979.

The high-tops maintain the classic Top Ten silhouette and colorways but have been re-engineered for skateboarding. Design details include a full-grain leather upper, a rubber toe cap and vulcanized outsole.

They’re available for $90 at select retailers and on adidas.com/skateboarding.
