On-Foot Looks // Philllllthy x adidas NMD S1
With partnerships ranging from LEGO to Star Wars — and even German ceramic house Meissen — it’s well known that adidas look far and wide for their collaborative co-operators. And although they[‘ve linked up with some of the biggest names in their respective fields — Kanye and Beyonce included — their newest partnership is somewhat surprising, as they’ve enlisted the help of customizer-come-creative Phillip “Philllllthy” Leyesa for his input on the adidas NMD S1
Before he got knee-deep into fashion, Phillip cut his teeth on sneaker customization. It’s this background that arguably caught the attention of the Three Stripes; so much so that he was the very first recipient of the new NMD model mid-last year. Given this, it seems like the link-up has been in the works for a minute, with it finally coming to fruition this Fall.
For his own colorway, Phillip has emulated his signature hues of indigo blue, with heritage gum soles and baby blue caging. There’s further retrospective inspiration riddled through the patterned upper; one reminiscent of vintage luxury prints.
Grab a fresh, on-foot look at the Philllllthy x adidas NMD S1 here below courtesy of @yankeekicks, and look for these to land at select Three Stripe stockists and adidas.com on November 15th for $220.
