The adidas Originals NMD_R1 'Sashiko' is here. Inspired by the Japanese folk embroidery technique, the NMD_R1 features a patterned Primeknit upper and an elasticated collar for a custom fit. Cushioned, lightweight and breathable, the NMD is finished with a heritage hovering heel unit with a contrast printed heel pull loop, flat laces and a thin grid-like insole that maximises the experience underfoot.

These are limited edition, so get into Hype DC quickly before they sell out.

The EQT has everything that is essential, and nothing that is not.  These running-inspired trainers look sporty, but they're ready for modern urban adventures. Boasting retro DNA, the sleek build celebrates '90s equipment athletic gear. The new EQT Support RF shoes bring fresh energy to this iconic favourite. The upper features the original mix of mesh and suede-look detailing. 3-Stripes extend into the midsole, while a wraparound "burrito" tongue gives you a secure fit.
