adidas Originals has given its immensely-popular NMD_R1 silhouette a sleek makeover with two new Reflective iterations of the shoe in monochrome colorways.

The two styles, “Core White” and “Core Black/White,” are similar to previous releases (notably, these mesh numbers released back in March) but boast additional details such as the intricate Japanese writing up the heel tab (as seen on most of the newer NMDs,) and a crisper, more refined overall aesthetic.

Elsewhere, as usual, a ventilated side panel with a cage overlay sits atop of the BOOST midsole, but there also appears to be additional white texturized laces to give the black model a more eye-catching and reflective look.

The NMD_R1 “Reflective” pack is set for release on August 18 via select adidas retailers including Livestock. In the meantime, here are the 15 best Three Stripe sneakers released so far this year.
