UPDATE: It has been some time since we first caught wind of these blacked-out NMD_XR1s, but at long last, we have a release date. Fortunately, we don't have to wait much longer to see these hit shelves. They will be landing alongside the slew of other NMD releases scheduled to drop on April 6. Cop your pair from select adidas Originals stockists, including MATE.
Prepare for another wave of NMD pandemonium, because an NMD_XR1 has emerged sporting 'Shadow Noise' Primeknit and almost 'Triple Black' construction. The striped pattern, which debuted on the NMD_R2, lives up to its 'shadow' moniker this time around, cloaking the XR1 almost entirely in darkness. From the laces, to the shanks, to the Colour Boost midsole, each component has been blacked out entirely. The only exception is the heel tab, which features a bright red pull tab and stitching. It goes without saying that these are almost guaranteed to sell out instantly upon release.
At this stage, adidas are yet to provide a release date for the NMD_XR1 'Black/Red' but we will keep you posted when further details emerge.
