Powerhouse sportswear brands Nike and Adidas recently came together to create a sleek shoe model that highlights a sleek and modern sport aesthetic paired with vintage design patterns. The shoe, dubbed the NMD, offers a stylishly bright red and black tie dye pattern on a sneaker silhouette that pays tributes to fashion elements popularized by both brands.

It might be an unlikely match to see what might be considered athletic fashion revivals Nike and Adidas come together to work on a shoe design, but the two companies have together for the Consortium Tour in which Nike is the guest host. The NMD shoes capture the vintage flare of the Haight Street district in San Fransisco that is known for its large music scene and street art. The sneakers feature a bold tie-dye red and black upper coupled with a fitted frame and white soles.
