The Gore Tex version of the Adidas NMD combines various elements of past NMDs to create something entirely new and unique. The Primeknit upper utilizes a pattern similar to the recent NMD_STLT silhouette, which features Riemen system stripes locking the foot in place. The laces run through the knit, but are covered by a flap in the front, which is held in place by elastic bands. An easy-access lace lock is threaded through the front flap to provide an easier way to put on or remove the adidas NMD_TS1. The new silhouette also features protective ATR taping between the signature NMD midsole pods. Finally, dual NMD-branded pull tabs are features on the heel and tongue. The best part is, its 100% WATERPROOF!!!!!
