The NMD family has become undoubtedly one of the most popular creations to come from adidas Originals this year, and they're certainly showing no signs of slowing down. We take a closer look at some of the latest versions of the NMD set to launch at size? next week.
The newest addition to the ever-expanding Boost family, the adidas Originals NMD XR-1 continues to build on the futuristic foundation NMD has already laid. This new rendition adds a plastic support cage around the midfoot area, improving stability across the upper and adding strength to the overall design. The Boston/Micropacer inspired rectangular plugs are still present within the midsole, protruding outwards from the cushioned Boost foam.
Primeknit spans the whole of the upper, decorated with a linear pattern running across the entire one piece panel. A leather heel-cup sweeps around the back for extra support, and the bi-lingual pull tab we’ve seen on previous NMD releases has also been included, weaving in and out of the leather.
Varying in material to the XR-1, the R1 is made up from a combination of neoprene around the heel area, with a flexible mesh forming the sidewalls and toebox. Striped branding across the side has been fused on using a flattened reflective tape material, and a plastic heel counter adds extra support.
Joining the above releases are womens specific colourways of the XR-1 and R1 (not pictured) which will be available online and from selected size? stores.
