5. NMD_XR1 by Adidas
Whereas other brands have found success by thinking retro, Adidas has thrived in the footwear space—and even overtaken Air Jordan—on the strength of its new models. The Boost sole on this NMD isn’t quite as forgiving as on the vastly popular Ultra Boost model, but the NMD is far from uncomfortable. If you’re not a fan of the simple black colorway, you can keep an eye out for the new colors Adidas is perpetually releasing.
The NMD is an extremely versatile look, with only one real style commandment: Wear pants that are tailored nicely to your ankle. The shoe already has a low profile as is, and you don’t want to hide any of it under baggy pants. ($150, adidas.com)
