While it is not often, there have been instances several times before where multiple adidas NMD colorways have hit the shelves on the same day. It seems that adidas Originals is planning to drop a number of popular NMD releases on April 20th, 2017. This major NMD launch will consist of eight different colorways of models like the NMD R1, NMD R2 and the NMD XR1, including versions for both men and women. These colorways will include the adidas NMD R1 Primeknit “Pink Shock” and the NMD XR1 “Zebra.” Also joining them among this week’s adidas releases will be the NMD City Sock “Gum Pack.”
While these NMD releases are on their way to retailers, there is also one scheduled to arrive next month. Sneakerheads who have been waiting to cop a pair of the adidas NMD XR1 OG will finally have their chance to do so because the sneaker is set to make its highly anticipated retail debut next month on May 20th, 2017. The NMD XR1 OG colorway features the exact same color scheme as that of the NMD’s debut colorway. Thus, it’s mesh uppers are dressed up entirely in sleek Black, while it is equipped with clean White-colored Boost foam midsoles that feature Blue- and Red-colored EVA inserts.
For sneakerheads who do not even know, the NMD City Sock is a casual, mid-top model that adidas Originals introduced last year. The silhouette combines woven Primeknit uppers with Boost cushioning and does not feature any laces. The NMD City Sock made its debut on May 21st, 2016 and retailed at a price of $170. The NMD City Sock “Gum Pack” is actually a re-release that made its retail debut last year. The colorways are relatively simple and subtle, one in Black and one in White, and both equipped with clean White-colored Boost midsoles and Gum Rubber outsoles. The midsoles of each iteration also feature EVA inserts matching the uppers.
Along with the multiple adidas NMD releases that are scheduled to arrive at retailers on April 20th, the NMD City Sock “Gum Pack” will make its comeback on April 27th, 2017. The adidas NMD City Sock “Gum Pack” already made its retail debut last year and was quite popular, but this time it will not return in the U.S., rather this re-release is a Europe-exclusive.
