adidas is adding a new pair to their NMD line and these are called the adidas NMD S1. The shoe is an updated version of the classic NMD model and was first spotted on the feet of Pharrell Williams. Thankfully, adidas won't make us wait any longer and the official images of the updated silhouette have finally been released.
History of the adidas NMD
The NMD model was first launched in 2015 with the adidas NMD_R1 PK 'OG'. For its first release, the model wore a black upper with a trigger on the heel. The sneaker has a white midsole and a black outsole. The midsole features two blocks, one in red and one in blue.
With this model, adidas wanted to combine the PrimeKnit materials with their BOOST technology. The silhouette is inspired by the designs of three different shoes. We see some elements of the adidas Boston Super, Rising Star and Micropacer come back on the sneaker.
Eventually, the model gained a lot of popularity and the NMD became one of our favourites. Over the years, we have seen several pairs of the model, with each shoe bringing a different colorway.

Like the regular NMD, the new silhouette features a primeknit upper. This is completely white with a black accent on the heel. The middle lining of the model is transparent, so you can better see the three stripes of the brand. The laces of the sneaker are white as well, with blue specks on them.
In addition, the model has a new midsole, which is slightly higher than the original midsole of the NMD. On the midsole, three blocks can be found that stick out. This gives the model more shape. You can also find some branding on the midsole and on one of the blocks.
The most striking detail on the colorway is of course the profile on the bottom of the outsole. These, like the midsole, are white and consist of small adidas logos.
The adidas NMD S1 unfortunately doesn't have an official release date yet, but it is expected in 2021. Don't want to miss this release? Keep an eye on our release calendar and follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
