For its latest partnership, adidas Consortium paired up with popular German sneaker boutique, The Good Will Out, to deliver a sleek, monochrome NMD CS1.
With over a decade in the game, The Good Will Out has built a strong reputation as one of the best sneakers shops in all of Europe.
The design pulls inspiration from the Shinobi— the male ninjas of feudal Japan who were often tasked with espionage or assassination. Their legendary fighting technique, “Ankoku Toshi Jutsu,” allowed them to see in complete darkness. Taking many years to master, its practitioners were forced to “see” using their other senses. Dressed in all black, they moved throughout the night surreptitiously. In true homage to the ninjas of feudal Japan, the NMD CS1 arrives in full-on stealth mode.
Take a closer look at the adidas Consortium x The Good Will Out collection (shown above), available for pre-release September 16 at The Good Will Out shop and thegoodwillout.com. The styles will be available for general release on September 23 at global consortium accounts with a retail price of $220.
