The Hard Court Hi from adidas Originals is a throwback to the brand’s heritage basketball models of the 80s. Characteristics like clean lines, exaggerated trefoil branding on the tongue and 3-Stripes displayed on the side panels are recognizable to anybody who has paid attention to sneakers over the last 30 years. With updated presentation, the Hard Court Hi has garnered quite a following over the last couple of years, and this new colorway will surely get some attention as well.
This pair is dressed in lead grey suede with black mesh filling in the side panels and toebox. Sun yellow compliments the look on the inner liner, lace eyelets and detailing on the heel and ankle. Giving the shoe a modern look is a white vulcanized sole stationed below. Available to purchase at Eastbay today.
