This adidas NMD S1 “Friends & Family” Is Limited To Just 100 Pairs
Following teasers in early June, the adidas NMD S1 has recently surfaced via a couple of friends and family members of the Three Stripes in an exclusive, limited-to-100-pairs colorway.
Arguably the freshest update to the “NOMAD” series since its debut back in 2016, the new rendition resembles the original BOOST-cushioned sneaker enough to not confuse casual sneaker connoisseurs. Despite that, a handful of its design cues differ from the minimalistic and streamlined aesthetic that made the adidas NMD one of the most coveted pairs in the market in the mid-2010s. Similar to the previously-seen colorway, the “Friends & Family” edition features a knit upper atop a robust, semi-translucent sole unit. A mint green hue takes over most of the shoe, with deviations appearing in the form of accents on the heel, as well as branding and protruding components on the midsole. Images from accounts such as YOUTH OF PARIS, Deon Point, and Phillip Leyesa (better known as @philllllthy) reveal that the NMD S1 encloses its full-length BOOST cushioning instead of leaving it exposed at the sides. While the aspect of performance is yet to be put to the test, it’s very probable adidas‘ revolutionary foam will keep its firmness for much longer given the new approach.
