The adidas NMD_R1 Hops on the Off-White BandwagonRelease: 6 September 2018
The hype surrounding the NMD may have waned in recent years, but adidas have managed to keep the silhouette fresh thanks to the likes of Consortium drops, Parley collabs, and graphic uppers like this season’s ‘Marble’ release. Now the BOOST-cushioned low-top is hopping on the current be-all and end-all of hype trains with an ‘Off White’ pair to capture the zeitgeist.
An NMD of the R1 variety, these cast aside Primeknit in favour of a ripstop synthetic as the off-white hue coats everything from the upper and laces to the front midsole plug and continental rubber outsole. The only contrast here — aside from the stark white BOOST — is a ‘Lush Red’ rear midsole plug to subtly connect these to the OG.
Expect a drop at select adidas retailers on September 6.
