These Two New adidas NMD R1 Releases Will Feature The Classic Primeknit Construction

adidas released the NMD R1 back in December 2015 for the very first time. The “R” in R1 likely stands for Runner, considering that the low-top sneaker is often also referred to as the NMD Runner. Ever since its debut two years ago, adidas has utilized materials like mesh, neoprene and Primeknit for the sneaker’s uppers, pairing them with their signature Boost outsoles. Over the past two years, several different variations of the NMD R1 have debuted, making it one of the brand’s most popular running shoes. It is almost mid-March now and adidas seems to be ready to drop a number of brand new NMD R1 colorways.

adidas NMD R1-2Back in December 2017, adidas teamed up with INVINCIBLE and NEIGHBORHOOD for a special NMD R1 release. This collaborative iteration was designed to celebrate worldwide Asian Heritage. Overall, it may seem like a simple, nearly all-Black colorway, with plain White appearing over the Boost midsoles, the inner lining and some of the branding. However, this colorway stood out because of the tiger patch embroidered over the right shoe’s heel as well as the Japanese characters that can be spotted over the heel tabs and insoles. Back in January 2018, adidas Originals also revealed that the NMD R1 would continue to arrive with its classic, original construction.

For mid-March, adidas seems have two different NMD R1 colorways lined up. One is dressed up in a combination of Black and White, while the other is dressed up in an Olive color scheme, the Primeknit uppers of both featuring the NMD R1’s signature glitch patterns. Some contrasting detailing can also be spotted over the ankle collars of both colorways. Namely, Orange-colored accents appear over the Black and White iteration, while Neon Yellow-colored accents can be spotted over the Olive one. They are also equipped with all-White Boost midsoles. Both of these NMD R1 colorways will retail at a price of $170 each at select adidas retailers on March 15th, 2018.
