You can’t go wrong with the NMD. Even though it’s popularity has fallen by the wayside, its timeless design and BOOST-loaded comfort can’t be beaten. And now it’s arrived with another new blocking hit, this time featuring gradient midsole and Three Stripe finishes. But the big drawcard for Three Stripe fans is the inclusion of the infamous YEEZY 350 v1 “Pirate Black” weave on the pair’s Primeknit upper. Granted, its colors are inverted and its pattern slightly tweaked, but the resemblance is uncanny.
EVA inserts, tongue branding, glazed-on forefoot overlays, lacestays, and outsoles all arrive in complimentary Core Black, while the vibrant hits of Solar Red grace the heel fixture and gradient effect across the heel and profile Three Stripe branding. This pair joins a previously-released two-pack with the same effects in straight black and white — and like those, this pair is available right now, directly from adidas.com for $130.
