Adidas Skateboarding “Purple Na-Kel” Matchcourt High RX

December 15, 2017

If you were going to characterize professional skater Na-kel Smith, luxuriously stylish would be a descriptive early in your summary. So when we opened the box of our new adidas Skateboarding Matchcourt High RX Na-Kel signature shoe, his fourth with adidas Skate, and saw that they were purple with Italian velvet, we wanted to find our own Paisley Park and wear them on a night out. We imagine a double-dip: a skating and zoot suit combination. Back in the day, the 1970s and 80s that is, the Matchcourt High was a basketball staple, so we are envisioning Kareem rocking these purple velvets with the Showtime Lakers. A perfect lineage to Na-Kel’s signature sleekness, for skate or play.
