I am Groot. I am Groot, I am Groot. My flora colossus is a bit rusty but I believe that means that Groot has a new adidas NMD_R1 Trail release, joining this year’s Guardians of the Galaxy collection a few months late.

Early this year, adidas quietly released a collection of sneakers themed around the recent Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy video game. A single-player story experience, the game highlighted the relationship between the various members of the team, and the way their personalities interact. adidas saw an opportunity to replicate this characterization in sneaker form, releasing pairs inspired by Star-Lord, Drax, Gamora and Rocket Raccoon. However, it appears the pack was not quite complete (global supply chain, etc, etc.), with one more team members required to finish off the collection. Enter everyone’s favorite living tree, Groot. Paired with the outdoor-ready adidas NMD_R1 Trail, this pair takes on a ‘Trace Khaki’ color to imitate Groot’s coloring, while a black Boost midsole and yellow accents complete the look.


The latest Guardian to join adidas’ Marvel-themed collection, the NMD Trail inspired by Groot, launched earlier this week, and is currently avialable directly from the Three Stripes. Dressed in Trace Khaki with yellow and black accents, this limited-edition release comes with special Guardians of the Galaxy branding and a $160 price tag. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more adidas release news.
