Titolo x adidas Consortium NMD XR1 Trail "Celestial"

by Henrik Buzzi

Titolo has looked to the region’s dramatic outdoors to create a sneaker inspired by alpine snow zones and hidden glacial phenomena. The Titolo x adidas Consortium NMD XR1 Trail "Celestial" reflects this landscape via a loose gauge pattern in the sneaker’s Primeknit upper and perforated leather details, while the asymmetric overlay resembles a snow coated ridge in the sunlight. Mountainous patterns are further echoed in the textured structure of the BOOST™ midsole. The outsole, the only part of the shoe that is not white, summons the image of an exposed glacier.  Millions of years in age, wondrous, translucent and impossible to explore beyond the surface, it is a smart and evocative source of inspiration for the rarely-seen underside of a sneaker. Releasing march 18 at Titolo.
