UPDATE: Created as a three-way collaboration between United Arrows, Mikitype and adidas, the brush scripted NMD City Sock isn’t far away. In fact, it’s so close that the crew at Titolo have already taken them out for some on-foot glamour shots – and we’re liking what we see. Hang tight, the March 24 drop date is coming in hot.
We’ve just received images of a United Arrows x adidas NMD City Sock, designed with the help of calligrapher Mikitype. For the most part, the shoe looks to be the same as is appeared in some leaked images earlier in the year, with script lettering details set against a black upper. The outsole does appear a little gummier in the official photos, which we certainly won’t complain about. There’s also a matching apparel line, which features some track jackets and pants adorned with the same brush-script lettering.
The United Arrows x Mikitype x adidas NMD City Sock will be available from March 24 at select stockists.
