An NMD has slipped through sneaker industry backchannels, hinting that Stone Island are once again in cahoots with adidas. The obscured shots show an NMD_R2 built with suede and wrinkled leather – materials in line with Stone Island’s penchant for weather-resistant designs – but the clincher is the branding. A motif similar to Stone Island’s compass logo features on the tongue alongside the Trefoil stamp, suggesting the two brands are following up their 2009 Samba colab.
As much as we want to believe what we think we're seeing, the Instagram images don't come with an official co-sign from either brand. Stay with us, cross your fingers, and we’ll let you know as soon as more info is available.
