adidas Originals Primeknit NMD_R1
Last updated on May 24th, 2016 at 10:16 am
It was only in December last year that adidas Originals dropped the stunning looking new NMD silhouette to much acclaim. While we’ve been gawping at the beauty and hissing at the fact we can’t get hold of a pair anywhere, adidas have been preparing for a follow-up in the shape of the NMD_R1 Primeknit!
The adidas Originals NMD_R1 takes on the majority of the properties from the ground-breaking NMD Runner silhouette but simply gives it a techy makeover with the addition of some of adidas’ revolutionary Primeknit textile and a new dark colourway. We think we might even love it more than the original NMD!
The shoe blends the futuristic aesthetic of the NMD Runner with adidas Originals’ most forward-thinking technical elements. That means the superlight upper is constructed from their Primeknit. This means a single yarn is knitted to a high performing upper structure layer rather than using the conventional method of stitching and laminating upper pieces together.
The Primeknit offers unrivalled comfort and freedom for your foot while still giving plenty in the way of protection. On the NMD_R1, adidas Originals have used it in an all-over noise graphic with welded tape structural overlays. The trainer is then finished off with the trademark tonal three-stripes on the shoe’s distinctive midsole with EVA inserts.
The adidas Originals Primeknit NMD_R1 comes in a Grey colourway and is set for release on Saturday 30th January. There won’t be many knocking and if December’s release is anything to go by, competition to grab a pair will be tough. They’re being sold in various stores and on a few Websites including Size? Good luck!
