Similar in concept to the Micro R1, adidas has fused yet another retro runner with functional attributes tied to the NMD R1. Around since the mid-‘80s, the Boston Super — released to commemorate the Boston Marathon — at one point was a popular running model, which has been brought back to life in hybrid form, otherwise known as the Boston R1.
Fashioned from nylon and suede, the familiar upper highlights varying shades of grey with “Boston Super” branding found hitting the side Three Stripes design. A full-length BOOST midsole/rubber outsole combo, EVA inserts and a heel pull tab, all reminiscent of the NMD R1, completes the composite runner, resulting in another old-meets-new adidas cross-breed. Although price has still yet to be confirmed, the new Boston R1 is set to make its debut on September 1 via adidas’s online shop.
