A Closer Look At The New Adidas Originals NMD XR1

Late summer and early fall are shaping up to be buzzy times for Adidas Originals.

The brand announced earlier this week that the NMD XR1 in an all-black colorway is set to drop on Sept. 17, as are the NMD_R1 in all-black and all-red colorways. But fans of the NMD won’t have to wait until September to get their hands on the latest pair.

Adidas will debut the NMD XR1 in a blue-and-black colorway on Aug. 18. The kicks have a micro-rib-knit upper and a new lacing system that allows the foot more freedom of movement.

Adidas also released a short video featuring the NMD XR1.

Adidas has created buzz around its newly introduced colored Boost midsoles. Previously, the brand only made its Boost midsoles in white. The NMD Solar Red and Triple Black feature red and black midsoles, respectively.
