adidas Skateboarding taps Pro rider and rapper, Na-Kel Smith to reimagine an archival classic for skateboarding. Debuting this month, the Rivalry Hi OG by Na-Kel receives a custom overhaul, courtesy of the skater’s bold personality and performance upgrades that repurpose the iconic court style for the street.
“[The Rivalry Hi OG] was originally a gift from adidas. I wore it so much that they asked if I wanted to release it,” Nak revealed about the silhouette.
Fusing the best of basketball and skate, the release boasts a high-top, classic cupsole in an all-Black colorway, accented with Collegiate Gold and Green and retro-inspired Na-Kel branding. A blended suede and synthetic upper offers unrivaled durability, matched with a die-cut sockliner for all-over comfort and sticky rubber outsole for precision grip.
Look for the Ka-Kel Smith x adidas Rivalry Hi OG to release on January 18th through select skate shops only. The retail price tag is set at $110 USD.
