adidas Skateboarding reveals the Matchcourt RX Nora – the brand’s first signature colorway for Pro skateboarder, Nora Vasconcellos. Since turning Pro and joining the adidas Skateboarding team, Vasconcellos hits another milestone with her reimagined low-top featuring original artwork and her recognizable pastel color palette.
The perfect balance of lightweight comfort and added durability, the Matchcourt RX Nora comes in a light purple canvas reinforced by suede panels in high abrasion areas. When referencing the silhouette that Vasconcellos chose to work with, she explains that “the Matchcourt RX is the perfect everyday shoe. You can dress it up or down and it’s great to skate right out of the box.” Performance features include an EVA sockliner for all-day cushioning and support, a double-wrapped foxing for extended protection and a grippy vulcanized outsole that emphasizes true board feel.
Marked by her personal style, the colorway and artwork embroidered on the shoe is reflective of Nora’s known love for pastels and individual aesthetic. As she explains, “Floral patterns go great with that shade of purple. The artwork for the shoe was a variety of stuff I have created in the past; patterns and drawings that I thought would be cool to embroider onto a canvas shoe.”
The Matchcourt RX Nora will be available at specialty adidas retailers in unisex sizes worldwide on the adidas Skateboarding website starting July 7. The Matchcourt RX Nora retails for $75.00 USD.
