Good to know

The unisex Adidas NMD_R1 GTX is available in men’s sizes only. The ladies who would like to grab a pair are recommended to get at least one and a half measurement smaller compared to their exact size.

The Adidas waterproof NMD_R1 has a low profile that allows a nonrestrictive ankle movement. It is also designed with the traditional lacing system for a fit that will keep your feet from sliding around.

The Adidas NMD_R1 GTX, like the non-waterproof NMD_R1, is for the people who cannot stay at home and prefers to stroll outside while enjoying a cushy and stylish stride. Wearers can enjoy walking in the wet without looking dull with the new NMD_R1 GTX. Although the black NMD seems simple, some still find it cool-looking. The Adidas sneaker can be paired with almost any casual to sporty ensemble since it is dressed in black.

This NMD_R1 sneaker features an 80s racing style that is filled with modern upgrades. The GORE-TEX lining is what makes this sneaker different from the other NMD_R1. The GORE-TEX technology is responsible for making the footwear waterproof and breathable, which is perfect for the winter season. It keeps the feet from being wet and cold.

Like the other NMD models, this sneaker features the lego-like blocks found on the Boost midsole. The Boost technology makes your every step cushy and responsive. The white Boost is painted dark towards the heel with a bright yellow “GORE-TEX” branding at the back of the midsole heel.

NMD stands for Nomad, a term that refers to a member of a community who continually moves from one place to another. The NMD line is heavily inspired by retro sneakers like the Micro Pacer, Rising Star, and Boston Super. Ever since its debut, the NMD collection has continuously expanded. 

The first model under the NMD collection is the Adidas NMD_R1, which is also known as the Adidas NMD Runner. This sneaker, due to its popularity, was able to release a number of iterations. Today, the NMD_R1 is back with new offerings for the winter season. Enjoy the Adidas NMD_R1 GTX with the same great style and comfort that many adore so much paired with the GORE-TEX lining, which makes it waterproof.

  • There are grey accents on the black upper of the Adidas NMD_R1 GTX.
  • It is designed with a heel tab, which helps in putting the sneaker on and off.
