A couple of years ago when the NMDs were the hottest lifestyle shoe on the market, Adidas and Champs joined forces to release one of the best winterized version of the NMD- the Champs X Adidas NMD R1 Burgundy. The shoes released incognito via Champs stores but sold out instantly especially in GS sizes. Both companies worked on several other similar projects after that but could never produce anything with the similar effect. So they decided to just retro the model this year and this morning I came across a fresh pair via my local Champs.
There was no upgrade to the shoe ( the color distribution remained intact). The uppers are covered in a fuzzy wool material in white and black with burgundy accents. Adidas branding comes in three black stripes on the side panel ; the laces sport the 3M reflective material that also covers the entire shoe. Equipped with the boost technology , the midsole features burgundy insert for maximum cushioning and comfort.
