The high-top matrix spirit wears a look of laidback easiness, like most of canvas shoes do. But the shoe is unique as with its playful attitude, it also speaks an air of elegance, a bit of upright, expressed by the details of the shoe’s fine outline and the lacing.
It works very well as an alternative to leather shoes or sandals in spring / summer time. In winter, it is a good alternative to boots as the shoe looks good with socks and you get to show off your collection of socks too. Most importantly, the feet can stay warm at the same time.

Many may find it is not as easy as it looks like to wear a high-top shoe properly, or to look the best. The Matrix Spirit high-top is very handy in freshening up simple wear. Yes the Matrix Spirit looks good with shorts and with trousers. With trousers, try to roll the trousers up to fit the ankle a bit if the trousers are a bit loose. The key principle we learn from models and fashion people who have shared their looks of wearing the shoe is being simple. Literally, keep it simple as much as you can, both in cuts and the colors of your clothing. Let this piece of designer’s wear work for you. By keeping clothing simple, it helps users to focus on the nature of the clothing.


The man size comes from US 5 to 11.5. But the limited edition goes quickly, you may find some of the sizes have sold out.

Midsole / outsole

The shoe has rubber sole with padded insole, ensuring all-day comfort. The shoe wears the glossy Adidas logo emblem at the side and on the rubber heel patch with logo lettering.


The upper is made of canvas, with a rubber toe cap. It comes with contrast-color lacing to play with.
