A London sneaker store, a Savile Row Tailor and a German sportswear brand walk into a bar – it sounds like a set up, right? As unlikely as this combination of collaborators might seem, the three-way design of Size?, Henry Poole and adidas really is something special.
The colab’s collection contains two NMD variants: a grey NMD_R2 built in the style of a dinner jacket, and a tuxedo-styled navy blue NMD XR1. Both models have polished up nicely, but the standout for us is the striped grey fellow, with rich burgundy accents and – for the first time – a blacked out R2 sole. Each sneaker is ritzy enough for a reception with Her Majesty, and may just be as hard to attain.
