Although the adidas NMD R1 no longer boasts “darling” or “grail” status among many sneaker collectors, the silhouette continues to help the Three Stripes bring BOOST-cushioning to the masses. For its latest ensemble, the lifestyle-oriented sneaker has turned back the clock to its original “Core Black/Cloud White” ensemble coupled with red and blue EVA midsole plugs.
Boasting a tried-and-proven Primeknit upper, the forthcoming pair features a relatively unassuming arrangement. Synthetic reinforcement across the mid-foot and vamp blend into their pitch-black surroundings, as does the stability counter at the heel. BOOST foam visible throughout the midsole interrupts the “Core Black” makeup with its standard white scheme, while lateral accents deliver red and blue flair that harkens back to 2015; the lone medial EVA plug indulges in a scarlet tone. Underfoot, tread keeps things simple in black.
