This season, NYC based ALIFE adds to its catalog of adidas collaborative sneaker drops. This time, the shop focus is on the Nizza Hi, which has been given a seasonal outfitting in white with colorful pops provided by the accompanying wristbands.
The kicks will launch at ALIFE on the 2nd of May. A global release will follow on the 11th of May
…Alife’s fresh take on the adidas Nizza Hi for SS19. Originally released in 1975, the vulcanized canvas shoe is a lasting icon from a time when sporting footwear – and indeed often the sports themselves – were approached in more stripped back, ‘let’s get to it’ fashion. Today, the Nizza Hi is lauded for its minimalist, versatile aesthetic and Alife bring their own character to the shoe while maintaining the qualities that have made the shoe endure for so many years. While the brand’s oversized logo is applied as a pad print on the outside of each foot (as opposed to in the traditional heel position), all other elements of the shoe – from the canvas uppers and rubber midsole to the heel tab and the laces – all rendered in monochrome, brilliant white. Minimal detailing such as the dates of Alife’s inception and current year on each of the toe-caps, branded laces and the no-frills Alife logo make for an understated, easy to wear rendition of this style.
The shoe also comes with specially-created TPU wristbands, which can either be worn around the wrist or over the actual shoes themselves.
