After teaser images hit the net a few weeks ago, the UNITED ARROWS & SONS and adidas Originals Japanese calligraphy artist MIKITYPE‘s collaborative NMD City Sock is finally here. The joint NMD City Sock features a relatively simple “Core Black” primeknit upper, a white BOOST midsole with black EVA sole plugs, and a translucent gum outsole for additional variety. The real kicker here though is MIKITYPE's display of his calligraphy skills on the inner sole arch, heel tab, and insole of the shoe spelling out UNITED ARROWS & SONS and adidas Originals in Japanese Katakana.
For us, this unmatched take on the NMD City Sock is yet another opportunity for us to get our hands on the City Sock silhouette that seems to sell out at every turn. Get a better look at the sneaks below.
While it looks to only be a Euro and Asian release, the $156 USD United Arrows & Sons x Adidas NMD City Sock will hit the net on March 25th via various adidas stockists including Naked CPH. So, there's definitely a chance for you to nab a pair before they hit the resell market.
