Inspired by the Three Stripes’ vast sneaker vault, yet executed as a poignantly contemporary sneaker, adidas reveals its latest silhouette, the NMD. Featuring adidas’s breakthrough technology, the NMD boasts a micro-engineered BOOST sole and Primeknit upper, incorporating further references from landmark Three Stripes styles like the Micro Pacer, the Rising Star, and the Boston Super for a wholly modern result.

At its core, the NMD is a technical runner presented in the form of a bold-yet-wearable lifestyle sneaker, while the debut colorway keeps things simple with a black upper and white midsole adorned with hits of color blocking. Speaking on this latest project, adidas Originals VP of Global Design Nic Galway noted: “Our archive features the best technology of its time and continues to empower us. It’s not a museum. It’s a tool. It’s a reference.”

The NMD will see a global launch on December 12, 2015.
