Adidas is bringing back a classic silhouette from the ’80s, the Rivalry Hi. This basketball model originally debuted in 1986 and was famously linked to New York Knicks legend Patrick Ewing.
This high-top’s retro release stays true to OG form with a white leather upper, royal blue Three Stripes running down each side panel, a large Trefoil on the heel, and plenty of blue and orange detailing to match the Knickerbockers’ uniforms. One notable difference between the original pair and the 2019 release is the slight tweak made to the tongue branding. Ewing is no longer affiliated with the brand, so his personal logo has been tweaked to read “Adidas” instead of “Ewing.”
An exact release date and pricing has yet to be announced for the “Knicks” Adidas Rivalry Hi, but expect it to start hitting accounts in the coming months. Check out the official images below.
