Adidas NMD_R1 x Bedwin & The Heartbreakers Style
Two colorways were prominently released namely the grey and the black. Both of these design exhibit a pinstripe pattern that extends from the toe to the heel of the upper. Zigzag stitches along the outlines of the Three Stripes not only add flair but also administer support on the sides. The Lego blocking elements on the sneaker's midsole are tinted in off-white tones which can still be seen from a distance.
Users love to experiment with clothing patterns in these bad boys. Looking smart is always an option with these sneakers as it can be partnered with chinos or smart shorts for dressing a bit formal. Wearing a pinstripe suit can accentuate the shoe's design more. The low top form also blends well with cropped pants and a coat and for those who prefer casual clothes can sport it with plain tees and jeans.
The canvas upper is composed of a mix of nylon and cotton materials that give it a cozy, breathable feel. From afar, the pinstripes from the toe to heel can capture the eyes of on-lookers as accompanied by the off-white lego blocks on the Boost midsole. Looking closely on the Three Stripes logo, one can see zigzag stitching which outlines every patch.
Adidas NMD_R1 x Bedwin & The Heartbreakers History
Staying true to the company's roots was the pinnacle concept for the success of the NMD franchise. Borrowing hints from the Boston Super, Rising Star, and Micro Pacer, the Adidas design team headed by Nic Galway invented a minimalist model with every detail playing a significant role on the function and image of the shoe.
Released in the latter part of 2015, the Adidas NMD or Nomad was one of the most coveted releases from the German brand since the discovery of fire. It was coined a Nomad because it was built for a traveling lifestyle knowing that the millennial generation revolves around exploring cool and untapped sites that are "Instagram-worthy."
Due to its unique and innovative form, the NMD R1 garnered a ridiculous following from sneakerheads and civilians alike. It was consistently re-colored into various styles and platforms not to forgot the platoon of collaborations from retailers worldwide.
One of the clothing stores that was fascinated by the iteration was a Japanese outlet called Bedwin & The Heartbreakers. They released their take of the NMD R1 in 2016 which includes pinstripes striking longitudinally along its upper. The Adidas NMD R1 x Bedwin & The Heartbreakers deviates from the iconic Primeknit material but retains the revolutionary Boost midsole.
