UK retailer size? is embarking on a sartorially themed sneaker collaboration with adidas Originals and Henry Poole, the first tailor to open its doors on Savile Row. Featuring the NMD XR1 and NMD R2, the project pays homage to the craftsmanship that goes into creating a bespoke suit. The XR1 is inspired by the fabled dinner jacket pioneered by Henry Poole in the early 1800s, finished in the same midnight blue shade on the original garment. The R2, meanwhile, uses a new take on the classic chalk stripe flannel fabric, famously worn by Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Look closely, and you'll see that each stripe is built out of the iconic three stripes, rather than the traditional two. Both are finished with suede and leather detailing on the heel panels and tongue tabs, and underneath each heel tab is Henry Poole’s signature Selvedge. The NMD XR1 launches July 21st at size stores and size.co.uk. Stay tuned for release details for the NMD R2.
