Today we get a much better look at the upcoming collaboration thanks to new images from Hypebeast. The mastermind Japan x adidas NMD XR1 features a black Primeknit upper and a white Boost midsole. Mastermind Japan branding has been added on the tongue, side panel cages, and on the heel. Next we have the mastermind Japan x adidas Tubular Instinct which takes on a black leather upper with white detailing on the back half of the midsole and the mastermind Japan branding on the tongue and ankle.
At the moment this collaboration between mastermind Japan and adidas Originals is expected to release on September 20th. Stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for updates.
I like the NMD XR1, but it would have been nice to see some color used on this collaboration. We’ve seen too many black NMDs release already.
