A classic makes a comeback

Those who have watched Michael Jordan in the late 80s know that Patrick Ewing and the New York Knicks is Jordan’s biggest rival, as the Knicks challenged the Chicago Bulls. During that era of basketball, Nike had the Air Jordan, while adidas had the Rivalry Hi—a high-top sneaker donning a familiar color blocking.

Fast forward to 30 years later, adidas is bringing back the Rivalry Hi in its original glory, with the same full leather upper with the classic blue and orange accents. What makes this release different is the tongue logo, where adidas gave it a modern spin while keeping the sneaker’s DNA as close to the OG.

There’s no official release date or SRP for the Rivalry Hi, but expect this retro to be a hit among basketball fans.
