Winter is coming, and Adidas is ensuring that sneakerheads can tread into the colder months in style by introducing the NMD S1 Boot's first inline release.
After a high-profile collaboration with luxury brand Moncler, Adidas takes the design reins solo, offering a more accessible yet equally robust version of the silhouette, slated to drop later this month.
Distinguishing itself from its upscale Moncler-branded predecessor, the GR (General Release) edition of the Adidas NMD S1 Boot sheds the premium hardware for a streamlined lace unit that marries function with fashion. It's a design decision that aligns with the needs of the everyday wearer, prioritizing ease of use without sacrificing the boot’s sleek aesthetic.
The upper is a symphony of subtle reworks. While it retains the warmth and comfort of strategic insulation, the quilting pattern is an exclusive take for the GR version, offering a fresh texture that's visually distinct from the Moncler collaboration. Similarly, the collar has been resized for a less tapered fit, and the distinctive toggle fastener has been omitted for a more traditional silhouette.
Despite these changes, the Adidas NMD S1 Boot remains unmistakably part of the family, echoing the NMD's signature futuristic vibes. The silhouette's progressive design language and Adidas' heritage in performance technology converge to deliver a winter-ready boot that doesn't compromise on urban appeal.
Sneak a peek at the upcoming GR Adidas NMD S1 Boot and mark your calendars for November 15th, just in time to elevate your winter wardrobe.
