adidas NMD XR1

Marking the next stage in the evolution of adidas Originals’ groundbreaking NMD, here’s the introduction of the NMD_XR1 which continues the series’ deconstruction of footwear traditions, blending classic sneaker components with progressive design perspectives into a clean, modern design.


Building on the winning design formula of the NMD series, the new drop stays true to the original blueprint with subtle updates such as a developed microrib knit construction with a two-tone pattern, strengthened by tonal overlays, including a premium heel patch in plush nubuck leather. Finished with full colour-blocked tooling and tonal branding details, the result is an understated release with contemporary touches that embody the NMD philosophy.
