There’s good news and bad news about the upcoming adidas NMD R1 Japan Black Boost. The good news is that adidas has figured out a way to create Boost in a color other than White. The bad news is that the shoe appears to be releasing internationally, and not in the U.S.. Damn.

Coming in an all-Black aesthetic, the adidas NMD R1 comes with a Black upper, a Black Boost sole unit, Black branding, laces, heel tab and eyestay. The only form of contrast is by way of the ankle collar as White accents create a striped pattern. Said to be releasing on June 10th (internationally), we will be sure to let you know if and when these get a U.S. release date.

Author’s Take

There is no doubt that if these end up arriving stateside, they will be one of the best colorways ever placed on the NMD model. Keep your fingers crossed, and we’ll make sure to let you know if that happens.
