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.
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 that gives an instant energy return upon striking the ground.
A striped, flat-knit spans the whole of the upper, decorated with a linear pattern running across the entire one piece panel. A suede 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 suede panel.
Both colourways of the adidas Originals NMD XR1 will be available online and in all size? stores on Friday 11th November, priced at £110.
