GORE-TEX, the waterproof and breathable membrane, has been omnipresent lately in the sneaker world. No stranger to the weather-resistant upgrade is the adidas NMD_R1, where the technology now appears once again.
This time, the branding is a bit more overt, with the namesake logo largely printed across the midsole heel in volt, and again on the forefoot ‘block’. The rest of the NMD is fairly simple, with some seasonal tweaks, like closed-knit mesh and sealed mid-foot seams.
The GORE-TEX-equipped NMD_R1 is available now direct from adidas.
