A new chapter for the silhouette, the adidas NMD R1 has only recently unveiled its V2 iteration, though even despite its young age, it already has quite a few revealed colorways to back up its debut onto the market. First seeing to monochrome editions and others just barely tonal, the kit is freshening up with a bit of luxury as it dips the heels of its Boost sole in a glamorous Metallic Gold. Elsewhere, however, the palette is largely toned down with black dye saturated each and every one of its upper accents. Taping as well as the Three Stripe logos just underneath all match the dark backdrop save for in texture, which mixes smooth synthetics with rough mesh and some hardshell supports towards the heel. Webbing and lace are just slightly more ornate: the latter bearing a roped patterning and the former opting for multilingual text in dark red.
