Progression maybe its dogma, but Adidas Originals clearly understands the value in looking back. Built upon classics such as the 1984 Micro Pacer and 1986 Boston Super, ideal foundation is laid for the new NMD to take flight.
Red and blue colour-blocking details pay homage to said past successors, but the breakthrough lies in the technology that goes into NMD's creation. Micro-engineered Boost made by compressing blown EVA pellets result in a durable, shock-resistant and responsive sole. Meanwhile, it owes its exceptionally flexible yet stable upper to Adidas' Primeknit fabrications.
The NMD is designed as a lifestyle sneaker to match the urban nomad that equally knows no bounds. Exaggerated shapes and angles make for a fearlessly modern body. Agility and strength manifested into one dynamic silhouette, these kicks are meant to rough out countless city terrains.
The NMD retails at $299 and is available at Adidas Originals Pacific Plaza store, LE Vault @ 313 Somerset, LE Chamber at MBS, and online.
