The NMD City Sock was one of the most hyped releases of summer 2016 by adidas and the NMD City Sock 2 was equally hyped when it was introduced earlier this year, back in April. The overall aesthetic of the NMD City Sock 2 was similar to that of its predecessor, with the exception of some subtle changes. Its Primeknit uppers featured a never-before-seen embroidered stripped pattern and a wrapped ankle. Instead of EVA inserts, the BOOST midsoles simply feature the same pattern embossed over them in the rear. While a NMD City Sock 2 release arrived at retailers earlier this month, apparently more colorways are on their way.
July 16 marked the retail debut of the adidas NMD City Sock 2 “Bright Red,” which featured Bright Red- and Orange-colored uppers with Black-colored camo/glitch detailing on top. Earlier in July, it was revealed that adidas and Japanese fashion brand United Arrows & Sons would be collaborating to drop a brand new NMD City Sock 2 iteration. The sneaker’s Primeknit uppers were dressed up in Black and Grey, with the medial sides featuring a half circular design. The logos of adidas and United Arrows & Sons can be spotted on the tongues of the left and right shoe, respectively.
With Fall 2017 nearing, it seems adidas is already preparing to upgrade the NMD City Sock 2 with a premium suede makeover instead of its usual Primeknit uppers. So far, two colorways of this NMD City Sock 2 Suede variation have been unveiled, one featuring sleek Black-colored uppers and the other with suede uppers dressed up in a Sand-like Grayish hue. Leather detailing can also be spotted over the heel tabs and medial sides of both iterations. Both are also equipped with identical, contrasting, plain White-colored BOOST midsoles and Black-colored Gum Rubber outsoles.
As of now, it is uncertain when exactly the United Arrows & Sons x adidas NMD City Sock 2 will be making its retail debut, but it will likely happen at some point in 2017, later this year. As for these two adidas NMD City Sock 2 Suede colorways, each of them will reportedly retail at a price of $200, arriving at retailers somewhere in October 2017.
