|First launched in Dec. 2015, the original adidas NMD Runner PK.|
FYI, no sneaker is hotter right now than these - launched under the adidas Originals, it called the NMD, a new silhouette which uses two of adidas most popular technologies - Primeknit and Boost. The NMD is not really for running or basketball, but for traveling the streets on a daily basis.
The NMD_R1 Runner looks like it have been sent from the future. At first glance the sneaker has a Primeknit, sock-like upper and a Boost sole. But if you look closer, you'll notice classic 80s-era adidas design elements like the colourblocked panels on the midsole.

What does the acronym NMD even means? According to adidas Original VP, "We started talking about what does 'new' mean, both in terms of design and how we live our lives. We kicked around a lot of thoughts on new modern design and the new nomadic traveler, but we didn't want to give a name that was too descriptive." As the shoes defies traditional categorization - blending technical running elements within a lifestyle product - the team decided to keep the name in code form.
I'm really loving the NMD R1! They're super popular right now - line ups and selling out the day they drop. Luckily, I scored myself (above) TWO pairs : ) I just LOVE the look of them - plus they're very comfy and incredibly lightweight. Stay tuned, more colourways and styles are coming soon. What do you think of them? For more info about the NMD and their release dates, click here.
