UPDATE: Anyone trying to get their shine on will be stoked to learn that one part of this NMD_R1 Reflective Pack is circulating back into retail. The shanked shiner is washed with a crisp white, and has small 3M accents on the laces that come to life in the dark. End. have just posted the shoe, promising a release in the coming weeks. Stay tuned, maybe the black is soon to follow.
The Ultra Boost isn't the only adidas silhouette with a reflective pack on the way. This August, the UB's partner in crime, the NMD R1, will also deliver a duo of reflective make-ups. The pack consists of simple black and white tonal colourways, treated with reflective accents that come alive in lowlight. Reflective flecks have been embedded in the mesh upper, while the laces dazzle with a radiant 3M glow.
Both colourways will release August 19 through select adidas Originals stockists, including Livestock.
