Though hype surrounding adidas Original’s NMD line has died down as of late, the German sportswear giant is still updating its arsenal for the silhouette.
This time around the NMD CS1 Primeknit model features a predominantly “Cloud White” outfit, including its BOOST midsole, which is then contrasted with bold “Core Black” “NMD” branding on its lateral side. Matching Black EVA plugs can also be found on the heel’s medial and lateral portion.
For those wanting a stealthier look, a black iteration will also be made available seeing all the aforementioned details taking on a mirrored look. Official pics to come. Both the “Core Black” and “Cloud White” colorways of adidas Original’s NMD CS1 is set to arrive at select stockists and adidas.com on April 20 for a retail price of $180 USD.
Although quite popular upon its initial release, the adidas NMD City Sock has taken a backseat of sorts as of late, with adidas Originals instead opting to focus their attention on other iterations of the beloved Boost-equipped casual silhouette. However, it’s still appearing in new makeups — albeit somewhat infrequently — and this new pair is sure to delight any die-hard adidas NMD fan, as it features a colossal NMD graphic hit over the medial side. Using a white Primeknit base as a blank canvas for the large black embellishment that wraps all the way around to the toebox, the shoe then continues the combo of white and black via the bricks on the midsole. While the lateral side is loud, the medial side opts for a crisp white look, even dropping the style code on the large white half-circle for a tech-y piece of tonal detailing. A branded heel tab then enables easy on-easy off, one of the CS’s greatest strengths.
