Waves of uncertainty have been sweeping the UK ever since the vote to leave the European Union was revealed in June. How will the economy be affected? Will we still have a place in the Eurovision Song Contest? And now, will we be able to get our hands on these Europe-exclusive Adidas NMD_R1 sneakers?
You can breathe a sigh of relief, at least on that last one, because they launch this week and the answer is yes. Unless the PM triggers Article 50 and fast-tracks the nation’s exit from the EU, the sneakers, which feature a lightweight olive green mesh upper atop a Boost midsole and black heel tap accent, will land in European retailers and online on Friday.
It follows the launch of an exclusive Red Apple pair of NMDs in New York to symbolise, you guessed it, the Big Apple. We can only assume the Europe-wide colourway is some form of olive branch.
The Adidas NMD_R1 Olive will be available at Footlocker from 26 August, priced £99.99.
