The adidas NMD category is touted for its sporty yet stylish appeal, but it’s about
to get a bit more into the grown-man aesthetic as Size? teams up with historic tailor Henry Poole for an outstanding collaboration with adidas Originals. The XR1 in navy, black, and white is inspired by a famous “Dinner Jacket” from the 1800s that was originally crafted by Henry Poole; it features a classic navy upper as well as Grosgian silk on the medial cage. The R2 features Chalk Stripe flannel uppers – the same fabric famously worn by Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
The Size? x Henry Poole x adidas NMD XR1 releases on July 21st in-store and
online at Size? for £150. Full release info for the NMD R2 model will be revealed soon via SneakerNews.com
