As 343 Industries first foray into the modern live-service gaming industry, Halo Infinite has returned the iconic franchise to its gameplays true single player format while catering to the communities ever-growing appetite for free matchmaking games such as Fortnite and Apex Legends.
In celebration of the game’s one-year anniversary this November, adidas has released plans for a commemorative NMD V3 in collaboration with XBOX, designed to evoke Master Chief’s tumultuous journey through the main story campaign that’s been heralded as one of the best in the six-game series.
Sampling the varying blue hues that construct Master Chief’s AI – Cortana – the silhouette harkens a vibrant turquoise base affixed with titular baby blue accents that center themselves across the semi-translucent sole unit, mudguard and various trefoil logos. Contrasting the luminous tonal spectrum, steel gray shades treat the midfoot Three Stripes, heel counter, pull tabs, laces and sock liner while the underlying BOOST midsole renders a crisp white offering. Diehard fans of the series will notice inspired embellishments such as the Capture The Flag and Stronghold game icons that outfit the heel clip, Fret and Lumu AI insignias and UNSC branding which proffers the medial side in conclusion.
Set to release on November 5th at adidas.com and select retailers globally, enjoy official images of the XBOX Halo Infinite x adidas NMD V3 below in the meantime.
