adidas is slowly introducing the NMD S1 model to the fore of its Primeknit series. The sock-like upper is a consistent mainstay in the lineup, seamlessly blending into the futuristic BOOST sole — an innovative cushioning platform that absorbs frenetic shock with each stride. Originally unveiled in 2013, the sole congeals thermoplastic polyurethane particles, aiding in the silhouette’s overall durability and flexibility during turbulent performance.
Last year, adidas introduced its all-white iteration of the NMD S1, featuring a milky upper with fine-tuned details at the sole. The second iteration saw a phosphorescent jade green sole and all-grey body. In continuation of the model’s lineage, the “Core Black” colorway refines its principal features, creating a sense of minimalist cohesion. Triple stacked translucent block mold inserts accent the futuristic sole, and a semi-translucent Triple Stripe motif is seen embossed across the textural, threaded upper. White speckling is featured at the heel and also incorporated throughout the black laces, finished with a debossed adidas logo and Trefoil at the outer heel.
adidas ushers in a sleek, streamlined aesthetic for its Primeknit upper, adding refined modifications that elevate the model to a new standard of technologically-enhanced footwear.
At the time of writing, The NMD S1 “Core Black” colorway will retail at $180 USD and will release alongside the grey-and-white upper later this year on the adidas home website.
