adidas Originals is releasing a new iteration of its latest NMD silhouette, the XR1, with a striking blue and black pinstripe upper.

The NMD_XR1 continues the NMD series’ deconstructed aesthetic with a blend of classic components and progressive design work. It was first released in “Triple White” back in July, and has also since dropped in “Digital Camouflage” and “Black/White.”

Rising sound. The #NMD XR1. Beats by @ohnothedisrupt Sign up in bio for the latest updates.

For this release, the shoe’s microrib knit upper is coated with a two-tone, black and blue pinstripe pattern, which is offset with tonal overlays. A premium heel patch in plush nubuck leather, color-blocked tooling and tonal branding details complete a shoe which is simultaneously eye-catching and understated.

Watch out for the shoe’s release on August 18 over at the adidas Originals web store.
