“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.
