Following years of feverish sales and general cultural dominance, the adidas NMD hype has certainly and visibly slowed. Not quite to a crawl yet vastly slower than its pace in 2015-16 and the early moments of last year, the nomadic style appears in dire need of a organic push. This September, the push it needs could come from this (almost) original colorway wrapped in its R1 silhouette.
Although not a premium version which would include Primeknit fabrication, this mesh focused NMD R1 is coursed in an all-black upper and corresponding black Boost cushioning. Red midsole tooling contrasts the noir base giving the style classic appeal.
It’s reported this adidas NMD R1 Black/Red will release this September.
