atmos Tokyo is well-known for their incredible collaborations with a variety of brands. While they have already released a couple adidas sneakers this year, they have simply outdone themselves with the special new NMD_R1 dropping this week.

adidas Originals has kept the NMD_R1 silhouette close to their chest for the last few years, keeping the shoe constantly in the brand’s rotation while reserving collaboration for the best of the best. This week, another incredible project has been announced, this time in partnership with the legendary atmos of Tokyo, Japan. While the new look for the NMD_R1 is relatively simple and follows many of adidas’ design principles from 2018, this new collaboration is anything but ordinary. The new NMD begins with a black base for the upper, layered boldly with white stripes. The signature NMD branding has been enlarged and takes over the lateral side of the forefoot on both shoes, similar to other recent NMD releases. The atmos project rests on top of a plain white Boost midsole with black EVA support plugs. Finally, as a hidden bonus, the entire upper is threaded with reflective silver 3M, allowing the shoes to shine when in direct light.


atmos Tokyo and adidas Originals’ next collaborative project is slated to arrive in stores on November 17th, 2018. The sleek and subtle NMD_R1 will retail for approximately $140, though an exact list of retailers is currently unavailable. Check out the imagery of the shoe below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more exciting adidas news.
