Timeless Rivalry… on & off the b-ball courts

Despite being released during the 1980s, the high-top Rivalry from adidas have exuded a classic kind of elegant vibe. The adidas Rivalry is amongst the adidas classics of Superstars and Stan Smiths. Not only have adidas reissued Rivalry High silhouettes, but they’ve also created Rivalry RM, Rivalry Low, and Rivalry RM Low versions of the historic sneakers.

Historic Rivalry High

The revamped adidas Rivalry High model combines a retro eighties look with modern sneaker technology to create a timeless design packed with powerful nostalgia. The high top silhouette replicates the original version from 86 and gives an option for those who want more ankle support or just love the look of high tops.

The redesigned adidas Rivalry High is decked out with a full leather upper that sits atop a comfy rubber sole that’s lightweight yet durable and hard-wearing.

Lucky Rivalry Low

There were many fans asking for a low-cut take on the Rivalry High, so adidas decided to create the new minimalist Rivalry Low version. Often seen in a non-contrasting palette of triple whites, this sneaker has a premium leather upper that is peppered with perforated holes for ventilation. The upper is also reinforced with leather overlays to provide sturdy durability while the midsole offers a grippy rubber tread from underneath.

Rivalry RM Low

Similar to the Rivalry Low, the adidas Rivalry RM Low also takes its inspiration from the authentically classic high top basketball shoe design. But while it still has the trendy retro feel, the Rivalry RM Low is also infused with the technology of a Boost midsole. Not only does this upgrade help boost its appeal, but it also provides energy and comfort without sacrificing any style.
