With a basketball back-catalogue as deep as adidas’ it can sometimes be hard to pinpoint truly iconic silhouettes. One model with undeniable significance is the adidas Rivalry. Released in 1986, The chunky sneaker followed in the footsteps of the bank-busting ’84 Forum and the refined ’85 Centennial. Most famous for the launch colourway of white/blue/orange inspired by the New York Knicks, The Rivalry found just as much fame off the courts.On the streets of NY a burgeoning scene of young urban creatives was starting to grow a niche culture into a powerhouse of influence.They called it ‘hip-hop’. A broad term for what was essentially a whole generational shift.The world of hip-hop was inspired by a new sound in music but spread to corners of culture. It was in the breakdancing scene where the Rivalry really took-hold, With B-Boys and B-Girls donning the chunky sneaker along with Shelltoes and Puma Clydes to whip moves to the flyest beats.
