To develop the Adidas NMD, the makers of the shoe went rummaging deep in the Adidas archive in Herzogenaurach. And they emerged successful, having found inspiration in three running classics of the 80s – the Micropacer, the Rising Star and the Boston Super. Of course, the Adidas NMD does not forego today’s innovative technical standards. This makes the shoe’s slogan, ‘the best of the past and the future’, a fitting description.
The innovative technologies that the NMD boasts include, for example, the iconic Adidas boost sole. What is so special about this sole? It gives you a wonderfully light and supple feel. The sole is made of thermoplastic polyurethanes that are moulded together into many small capsules. These compress under pressure to absorb shock, relay it into the ground and ping back to their original shape.
