First making its way to shelves back in 2015, the adidas NMD was welcomed with an unpredictable surge of hype, due in part to its insane level of comfort, its versatility, its Instagram post-worthiness, and — of course — Kanye West and his timely shift to adidas. Over the past six years, we’ve seen the silhouette go through a handful of remakes, from Pharrell’s collaborative NMD Hu to the newly-revealed R1 V3. Though none have quite tipped the scales like the OG or the Hu, the Three Stripe’s new adidas NMD S1 has been the line’s most impactful model in recent times. The first delivery in white was reserved for only a select few, with influencers, athletes, friends, and family scooping up all the pairs, before a handful of small-batch releases across the globe. In recent times, we’ve seen a little more of the silhouette, with collaborations from Phillllthy and RIMOWA making a charge, and now a handful of in-line releases are expected to follow suit — including this new NMD S1 “Black/Altered Blue” release.
