These adidas NMD R2 “Collegiate Blue” & “Core Red” Arrive On The Same Day

adidas introduced the NMD R1 back in December 2015 and just after a year, they announced that they would be dropping an upgraded, second version of the model. adidas aimed to improve on the form, function and style of its predecessor, which they succeeded in doing, making the NMD R2 both look and perform better. While it was introduced with Primeknit uppers, its Boost tooling had been revised and its EVA plug detailing had been upgraded. Since the beginning of this year, the NMD R2 has already arrived in a bunch of colorways. Now, two more adidas NMD R2 colorways are scheduled to make their retail debut this month.

adidas NMD R2 “Collegiate Blue”-1Something about the NMD R2 that particularly stood out when it was first introduced was the fact that it midsoles have any blocky “bumper.” On all the NMD models that had been introduced until then, that feature had always been present. However, on the NMD R2 it was replaced with a pattern that was etched directly into the Boost soles in place of the bumper. This was a first-time thing for a Boost sneaker. The midsoles themselves were designed to be just like those of its predecessor and the R2 also had sock collars. The NMD R2 debuted in Black and Olive colorways back in November 2016.

These upcoming two adidas NMD R2 colorways that are featured here are dubbed “Core Red” and “Collegiate Navy.” However, the two look quite different from one another. The “Core Red” one is more bold and eye-catching, while the “Collegiate Blue” looks sophisticated and subtle. While both are equipped with clean, all-White Boost soles, the “Core Red” Black- and Red-colored uppers, and the “Collegiate Blue” has Blue and White-colored uppers, with some Red-colored accents. Both of them also appear to be featuring translucent outsoles.
