Adidas Originals teamed up with Brooklyn-based designer, Phillip Leyesa, best known as the man behind Philllllthy to create a carefully considered take on the progressive NMD S1 sneaker. The NMD S1; abbreviated version of Adidas NMD “Sneaker Number 1”, the silhouette was first launched in 2021. This new version is an evolution of the classic NMD silhouette. Staying true to NMD’s spirit of purposeful simplicity and considered aesthetics, the progressive look continues to stand out by cutting away the noise.
Phillip Leyesa, a Brooklyn-based designer, is best known as the man behind Philllllthy, an online store specializing in the customization and upcycling of much-loved and well-worn Americana classics. Attracting attention last year for a custom indigo dyed patchwork rework of his own pair of the brand’s stripped back sneaker, the new official collaborative silhouette stays true to Phillip’s unique vision and approach. Taking the forward thinking look and reimagining it through a series of elevated details, the Philllllthy NMD S1 features a Primeknit sock upper reconfigured with space dyed yarns, a semi-translucent TPU shell midsole bearing Philllllthy’s signature ‘P’ logo, and a gum outsole.
The Adidas NMD S1 was released on November 30th, 2022 . The silhouette is available across select adidas Originals stores and online at https://www.adidas.co.in/
