adidas NMD R1 "SASHIKO"

For its upcoming NMD release, adidas Originals looks to the traditional Japanese sashiko stitching for inspiration, featuring two colorways of the NMD R1 and and one of the NMD CS2 PK. All three feature a breathable and flexible Primeknit upper with a woven disruptive circular pattern in black and white shades, engineered with a double yarn stitch. Additional details include include a minimalist lacing system, molded heel patch and BOOST midsole with EVA insert plugs. adidas Branding on the heel, as well as the forefoot plug on the NMD R1, finish the look. via FreshnessMag.com


In honor of the return of the "Bred" colorway of the Air Jordan 13, which hits stores tomorrow, Jordan Brand invited the Shoe Surgeon to conduct a private session at the brand's South State St. store in Chicago. There, in front of a captive audience, the L.A.-based sneaker customizer deconstructed and subsequently reconstructed a pair of the Air Jordan 13 "Bred," with the finished product featuring luxurious python paneling and contrasting red suede trim. via FreshnessMag.com

adidas NMD x Neighborhood Black Boost

adidas and Neighborhood might will be collaborating this fall with another NMD featuring a black and white theme. The newly surfaced sample is unlike any NMD we’ve seen before, as graphics hit the primeknit upper alongside minor details that hit the eva plugs and tongue. NBHD branding hits the eva plugs while the heels and back pull look are also given branded detailing. Lastly jagged patterns hit the upper for a final finish on this interesting NMD. No word on when these are going to release but stay tuned with Modern Notoriety for more news. via Modern-Noteriety.com
