The Adidas NMD_R1 Japan Boost carries the same fit as the regular Adidas NMD_R1. Its Primeknit upper construction hugs the foot of the wearer in an adaptive and breathable support. This low-top show is only offered in men’s sizing.
Versatile is a word one can use to describe the Adidas NMD_R1 Japan Boost when it comes to style. Though this low-top shoe is originally designed as a running type, it can function fully well as a casual shoe and can be used for fashion purposes.
It can go perfectly well with a variety of outfit picks whether it be for a street-style look or a more casual appeal. Along with a good pick for a set of top, one can wear the Adidas NMD_R1 Japan Boost with a pair of jogger jeans, cuffed fitted jeans, and skinny jeans. It would also look well with a pair of shorts.
The “Triple Black” and “Triple White” colorways of the Adidas NMD_R1 Japan Boost showcases a self-colored aesthetic that is displayed through its Primeknit upper and Boost midsole. The Japanese detailing on its Boost midsole front plug-ins and its heel tab also add to the aesthetic appeal of the shoe.
In 2015, Adidas introduced the Adidas NMD silhouette to the world, after the brand released the Yeezy Boost 350 and the Ultra Boost. Before anyone knew what the shoe looked like, the brand described it as a combination of the three sneakers from their archives. These were the Boston Super, the Micropacer, and the Rising Star.
It was through a New York City event that the Adidas NMD silhouette was first released and it rapidly went sold out. The shoe was also said to be one of the Adidas brand’s most talked about shoes.
The silhouette soon then was re-released with some bits of iteration and has even witnessed some collaborative releases. One of the variations of the silhouette was the Adidas NMD_R1 Japan Boost which showcases the full-length Boost cushioning and the Primeknit upper in a monochromatic colorway. The shoe comes in the “Triple Black” and “Triple White” colorways with Japanese characters displayed on the front midsole plug-ins and on the heel tab.
Adidas offers a unique Japanese script of “The Brand with the Three Stripes” that is found on the heel tab of the shoe. It makes the shoe one of the most remarkable and spectacular in the market today.
- The Adidas NMD_R1 Japan Boost may be sold out in some retailers.
