Na-Kel Smith and adidas Skateboarding have come together once again for the release of two Nizza RFS sneakers. The pack features both a high-top and a low-top offering, with the Nizza Hi receiving a “Spring Green” and pink colorway and the Nizza Low seeing a clean black-on-black design.

Both pairs are made from premium hairy suede — which was handpicked by Na-Kel Smith — and feature cheetah print heel tabs and inner-lining, along with a “NAKHEAD” pin that can be placed anywhere on the shoe. The two contrasting pairs depict Smith’s personality, showing off his wild side in the Nizza Hi and his mild side in the Low.

Speaking on the shoes, Na-Kel Smith says, “I like the history of the Nizza, and the look of the shoe. The suede we used feels furry and has a really nice touch to it. It’s also really easy to break in… More than anything, I’m appreciative and grateful to have been able to choose these colorways myself.”

The Nizza Hi features streamlined padding for maximum mobility, a double suede toecap for durability and a vulcanized sole unit that features a white and pink Nizza-branded license plate on the rear. The blacked-out Nizza Low also features thinner padding and a reinforced toecap, while using red to highlight the foxing stripe and adidas Trefoil branding on the tongue.

Both pairs can be picked up from adidas Skateboarding outposts and online on August 10. The Na-Kel Smith x adidas Skateboarding Nizza RFS Hi is priced at $100 USD and the Low for $85 USD.
