adidas Originals NMD_Inspired by the mobile and fast-paced lives of today’s creative minds, the global introduction of NMD marks a new direction for adidas Originals. Driven by a desire to experience. Inspired by the past but always looking to the future. When constantly on the move, objects bring meaning to a high-paced life. The adidas Originals NMD joins this selection.

The global launch at the Lexington Armory is characterized by a conceptual presentation which embodies the signature aesthetics of NMD. This includes an installation that combines the latest technology in creative video projection with human interaction and sound design in a minimal but considered stylized setting of design-focused contemporary artifacts that the urban nomad carries with him—including, of course, the adidas NMD. It visualized the concept of a fearless contemporary nomad via huge experimental film screens of bustling international capital cities. The launch of NMD marks a bold new direction for adidas Originals.

With NMD, adidas Originals references recognizable design details from its iconic past and recasts them in a completely new silhouette that utilizes some of the most advanced engineering and technology the industry has to offer today. The resulting NMD design is the newest addition to the adidas Originals legacy, establishing a bridge between the brand’s storied past and its pioneering future. NMD ­– the past empowers the future.
