Gold Rush! adidas Forge a Duo of Gilded NMDsRelease: 21 August 2020
The adidas NMD has lived quite a life since it burst onto the scene in 2015. Following in the cushy footsteps of the UltraBOOST, the NMD was an alchemical combination of Three Stripes’ heritage design cues and paradigm-shifting modern aesthetics. Sneakersphere-breaking colourways (‘Pitch Black’, anyone?) on debut minted it an instant classic. Since then, it’s done what all classics do: become a rotation staple.
Next up, the folks from Foot Locker Australia have forged a duo of gold-plated NMDs to add some shine to the Nomad lineup.
First up, inky black floods the upper and BOOST sole, leaving room for the attention-grabbing gold to take the spotlight on the heel, tongue and sole widgets. The companion model flips the script, sporting all-white mesh with black detailing and those golden metallic hits!
Tech-wise, adidas run with a tried-and-true formula. The sock-fit knitted upper ensures seamless comfort and breathability, while the full-length BOOST brings that walking-on-clouds feeling.
If you’ve got major #boostvibes, the ‘Gold Rush’ pack is available now, exclusively at Foot Locker AU and NZ.
