Sami Miro is a queen of vintage. Her nous for taking torn, distressed, or any form of pre-loved clothing and fashioning it into unique pieces is adored by celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Ariana Grande and the style elite alike. Speaking with Hypebeast she says that ‘With fashion, at the end of the day I want to maintain the integrity of pieces from the past and what they experienced’ – a sensibility adidas have also packed into their NMD. Taking elements from the Micropacer, Boston Super and Rising Star, the shoe allows a modern audience to appreciate designs from deep in the adidas catalogue.
For this new clip, Miro shares the process behind her success while pairing the new NMD_XR1 with her unique reclaimed-vintage styling. She gives advice on finding vendors in LA and takes you into a top secret vintage warehouse, where she pores over materials, eventually taking a bunch of clothing back to her studio and working her magic with it.
