Building on the design language of the NMD S1 and the original NMD before it, adidas Originals and Humanrace have announced the release of the NMD S1 RYAT, a hiking-inspired boot stemming from celebrity Pharrell Williams’ renewed appreciation for the outdoors. 

“The RYAT is a cultural artifact and an object for humans pushing forward on our planet,” says Williams. 

The NMD S1 RYAT offers functional design, made from durable materials, in which every element and detail serves a purpose. The shoe’s upper is constructed from a mix of premium suede and leather overlays, while a rubberized TPU mudguard and toecap add to the shoe’s sense of utility. The design is completed with a Boost midsole for underfoot cushioning and a rugged outsole featuring Trefoil-shaped grip.  

To accompany the shoe’s release, illustrator, Gangbox, has offered an interpretation of the design in his signature maximalist style, creating a character who is seemingly equipped for every possibility.  

Launching on April 23,

the NMD S1 RYAT will be available through
