We’re only a day away from mastermind Japan‘s upcoming collaboration with adidas Originals that prominently features one of the best colorways of the adidas NMD XR1 to date. The trefoil brand has done an amazing job at keeping people interested in the adidas NMD series with upcoming collaborations with BAPE and more, but this premium mastermind Collection will kick things off and set the bar for others to follow. Today we get the best look yet at both the mastermind adidas NMD XR1 and the mastermind adidas Tubular Instinct, both with different approaches from the Japanese boutique thanks to premium touches of suede and leather throughout.
The mastermind adidas NMD XR1 is still the main attraction here, as the protective outer cage is revamped through the use of premium leather to match the heel construction. The Core Black colorway matches mastermind’s usual high fashion yet ominous aesthetic while contrasting white hits the Boost midsole and the signature skull and crossbones logo. mastermind Japan also made the adidas Tubular Instinct a head-turning collaborative effort thanks to an additional zipper on the heel reminiscient of their past collaborations with the Vans Sk8-Hi. The large skull and cross bones logo adds a menacing touch.
The mastermind adidas NMD XR1 and Tubular Instinct will release at select stateside retailers on September 20th with each pair will retailing for $220 USD. Check out more detailed shots below and stay tuned for more updates right here on Sneaker News.
