adidas NMD XR1 Triple Black

What better way to end out 2016 than with one more blacked out sneaker? Welcome in the adidas NMD XR1 Triple Black, wave goodbye to the year gone by.

These pair of kicks from the sportswear super giant feature a fully blacked out Boost midsole and EVA plugs along the back heel that lead up to the protective cage along the midfoot. When laced up tight, that cage pulls adidas’ new NMD R2 upper close along the top of the foot for a comfortable and supportive fit. Along with the sock-like comfort of the upper, the special grey and black Primeknit gives off a wild and kind of menacing vibe that feels like it is fit for someone like Darth Vader. Even more so when you look at the back of the shoe. The heel tab features a bright red stitching. A very specific type of red. Does that remind everyone else of a lightsaber, or did we just see Rogue One too many times? Keep an eye out for these in the coming weeks. Prices estimated to be around $150. [Purchase]
