UPDATE: The NMD XR1 with the blacked out Boost is right around the corner. Creeping up like a ninja in the night, this darkness-embracing XR1 has recieved a September 17 release date. You'll probably need quick reflexes to snag a pair, hit up Canada's Livestock on the day and hold your breath.
After teasing a ‘Triple White’ version of their NMD update, the NMD XR1, adidas are showing us a tonal variation. The stripes on the first option seemed like ribbing on the material, but this ‘Black/White’ version shows the shoe’s upper to have more of a pin stripe design. This XR1 is predominantly black with the shade falling on the TPU supports, shanks and even the Boost sole. White striping then provides contrast, lining the shoe from front to back.
Just like every adidas NMD XR1 we’ve got a peek at so far, this Black/White XR1 doesn’t have a release date set in stone. But trust we’ll let you know as soon as more info comes to light.
