New York’s Alife hasn’t tweaked an adidas Consortium sneaker since 2017, but that changes with this revamped pair of Nizza Hi. First released in 1975, the vulcanized high-top sneaker has been granted a minimalist makeover, accented with the bold addition of special TPU wristbands inspired by club culture.
With understated off-white canvas uppers and white rubber soles, the understated silhouette serves as an ideal backdrop for a bold Alife patch on the lateral side of each shoe, complementing the co-branded tags atop the tongues.
Branded laces and small “©2019” prints at the toe add further visual interest, but the main appeal comes by way of two distinctive wristbands, each emblazoned with Alife’s logo and “A Way of Life™” slogan. Offered in monochrome or standout red-and-blue tones, the bands loop through a rear pull tab for extra security, and can be worn on the wrists instead of the sneaker if so desired.
The adidas Consortium x Alife Nizza Hi drops this Saturday 11 May exclusively to Shelflife in CPT, JHB and via our online store for the retail price of R2499 via first come first serve. The JHB store opens at 9am, CPT at 10am. Remaining pairs will release online at 11am.
