Neighborhood x Invincible x adidas NMD R1 | Sold Out

adidas Consortium, Japanese label NEIGHBORHOOD and Taiwanese retailer INVINCIBLE come together for a special collaboration on the NMD_R1.

Established in Tokyo, 1994 by young motorcycle enthusiast Shinsuke Takizawa, Neighborhood was built out of a desire for well-designed, premium quality motorcycle apparel. Rammed with Asian iconography. The project delves back into the NEIGHBORHOOD archive with past designs serving as a reference whilst also utilising innovative materials and futuristic applications.

The inspiration for the NMD_R1 first came from the 2004 adidas x NEIGHBORHOOD Superstar which was produced in celebration of the 35th anniversary of adidas’s Superstar. In addition to the commendatory references, the current colour wheel and materials nod to the previous collaboration.

INVINCIBLE reinterprets NEIGHBORHOOD’s “Mash Jacket,” an outlandish souvenir jacket embroidered with tigers, dragons and ornate lettering. The tiger, in turn, is applied to the NMD as one of the sneaker’s most prominent embellishments. From tiger stripe camouflage to a golden tiger head on the right heel, East Asian’s largest and most recognised cat is well-represented on this triple branded collaboration. The NMD’s monochrome upper is crafted from hard-wearing nylon while both NEIGHBORHOOD and INVINCIBLE branding have been applied to the EVA plugs. Complimentary hits of black feature on the three-stripe branding as well as the inner lining and laces.

The adidas Consortium x INVINCIBLE x NEIGHBORHOOD NMD_R1 is now SOLD OUT.
