Back in July, sneakerheads got a first look at the adidas NMD R2, which has quickly become one of the most popular sneakers on the market at the moment following its recent retail debut. During the unveiling of an adidas Originals x White Mountaineering collaborative collection at Paris Fashion Week, models were also spotted rocking what was later identified as the successor to adidas’ highly-coveted NMD R1. Despite resembling the NMD R1, the R2 features two particularly major upgrades that set it apart. Along with the debut adidas NMD R2 colorway, sneakerheads will soon also have another chance to grab a pair of the NMD R1 Primeknit “Tri-color.”
The adidas NMD R1 has undoubtedly been one of 2016’s most prominent sneaker releases and merely a year after it was introduced, adidas has already taken the model to the next level. Unlike the R1, the toe boxes of the of the NMD R2 feature three stripes and its Boost midsoles do not have any foam inserts on their lateral sides, instead each medial side sports a single rear bumper. Furthermore, the adidas NMD R2 has made its retail debut on December 3rd in two different colorways, namely a Black and Charcoal one, and a Black and Olive one. The retail price of each pair is $170.
In addition to the two adidas NMD R2 colorways discussed above, sneakerheads also being provided a second opportunity to cop a pair of the NMD R1 “Tri-Color.” adidas recently dropped the sneaker on December 3rd, but it is likely that plenty of sneakerheads were not able to get their hands on a pair for one reason or another. The NMD R1 Primeknit “Tri-Color” features primeknit uppers dressed up in a predominantly Black and White color scheme with a glitch camouflage patterns on top. The sneaker gets its nickname from the three Black-, Blue- and Red-colored stripes on its side panels. Finally, both its Boost midsoles and the EVA inserts are all-White.
The two adidas NMD R2 colorways already made their retail debut recently, but the should still be available. Moreover, even though the adidas NMD R1 Primeknit “Tri-Color” hit the shelves earlier this month, sneakerheads will still be able to cop it at a price of $170 on December 26th, the day after Christmas.
