It seems that the in-house designers of Deutschland's Adidas have a trip down south on their minds, as the sun-soaked landscape of Italy has seemingly inspired this new effort on the NMD S1.
The silhouette seems to have imbibed the rich palette of Italian sporting history, encompassing elements from vintage car racing to the iconic colors of heritage Serie A — and even international — football kits.
In this upcoming adidas NMD S1, the hues of the Italian flag – green, white, and red – are tastefully assembled alongside each other, alternating across the sneaker stripes. A cream finish graces the knit upper and the platform bottom, which nostalgically resonates with the elegance of vintage Italian cars. Moreover, the bold hits of blue and additional touches of red adorning the midsole plugs and upper accents, respectively, nod to the vibrant colors of kits that have characterized Italian football over the years.
This adidas NMD S1, bathed in colors that tell tales of Italian grandeur, is an ode to Italy's illustrious sporting history and cultural heritage.
Savor a closer look at this tribute to Italian sportsmanship. Should you wish to add this piece of art to your collection, it will be available at adidas.com on July 1st, retailing at $200 USD.
