As adidas continues to churn out solo endeavors, the Three Stripes also keeps tapping creative minds from an array of fields for special projects. The latest?: Los Angeles-based photographer, director, and designer Cali DeWitt.
Color-wise, DeWitt’s adidas NMD S1 collaboration isn’t too attention grabbing, boasting muted “Crystal White,” “Footwear White,” and “Dash Grey” tones. The sneaker, however, features a seemingly-haphazard pattern throughout both the Primeknit upper and Boost midsole. The multi-hyphenate further leaves his mark on the sneaker via a bold red signature on each shoes’ tongue labels. DeWitt’s adidas NMD project resembles a sculpture, with upper and bottom halves seeing little to no “breaks.” Lastly, trefoil studs deliver reliable traction to the artistic take by DeWitt.
Enjoy retailer photography ahead, as you wait for a launch on June 22nd; a stateside adidas.com drop should follow shortly.
