The athleisure trend has taken us by storm in recent years, with many choosing to pair off a set of sporty-looking sneakers with their daily outfits.

The adidas NMD_R1 in talc white
A sneakerhead's favourite, the NMD model was first released last December. adidas has since released multiple colourways ranging from pastel beige to volcano red, which have all flown off shelves quickly. adidas restocks them regularly, so keep a look out for more colours coming your way. 
Several celebrities have been seen in the NMDs, including Posh Spice herself, who took to Instagram to show off her new find.
