Adidas Originals and one of London’s most esteemed tailors Henry Poole have joined forces to create two sneakers styles for the modern man.

The brands have worked together, mixing Henry Poole’s rich heritage in bespoke suit design and Adidas Originals’ street style credentials, to adapt two Adidas NMD silhouettes – the style first launched in 2015.

Both shoes feature custom made fabrics and are inspired by Henry Poole’s signature day and evening suit styles.
Launching on 21 July, the NMD XR1 evening shoe takes its cues from the Henry Poole midnight tuxedo dinner suit, while the NMD R2 day shoe comes with a three stripe design, evoking the chalk stripe flannel suit. The NMD R2 style launches on 4 August.

The styles also incorporate other bespoke touches like the use of the Henry Poole classic Cundey Weave, more commonly seen in the brand’s ties and bow ties, to line the sock of the shoes. Finishing details include Adidas Originals x Henry Poole selvedge – subtly positioned on the heel.

The limited edition sneakers will come with a garment bag and sealed within a limited edition wooden shoebox. They will be available exclusively at Size? stores for £150.
