The Matchcourt Slip X Na-kel Smith Can Be Worn On and Off Your Board

Adidas Skateboarding has unveiled its new highly anticipated 'Matchcourt Slip X Na-kel Smith' shoes.

Staying true to a skater aesthetic, the Matchcourt Slips were inspired by the basic canvas skate shoe that was popularized in the 70s for it's low maintenance, lace-less design. Years later, the stylish shoe is still a hit among the skateboarding community, prompting adidas to infuse the traditional design with a few modern twists.

The Matchcourt Slip X Na-kel Smith features a black suede design with skate-inspired functions, like nylon heel pulls and a rubber toe cap for increased durability. The shoes are characterized by the embroidered red rose which adorns the top of the shoe, eliciting a gentle aesthetic from these otherwise durable and flexible shoes.

Made for everyone, the new adidas kicks fuse functionality and design to create sports apparel that appeals to a wider retail market.
