Although adidas Originals has been focusing most of their attention on shoes that are slightly newer in their life cycle, the ever-popular adidas NMD R1 is still chugging along unimpeded, and now it’s appeared in a new makeup that offers glossy pops of metallic gold. A likely homage to the most iconic colorway of the adidas Superstar, these adidas NMDs feature a white base with black accents on the midfoot’s three stripe graphic, the heel piece/tab, and the tongue badge. Bold hits of metallic gold then grace the rear bumper, as well as providing further embellishment on both the tongue and the front bumper. A full-length white Boost footbed provides signature cushioning, while a black outsole finalizes the look. By combining Trefoil Brand classics from two different eras, the design features a look that’s packed full of history but still inherently modern, an ethos that’s easy in practice but not so much in product. These new NMDs are available now for a standard retail price of $130 USD, so check out a store list directly below to see where you can snag a pair.
