Bold and graphic, expect nothing less from sporting authority Adidas as they launch the NMD_R1 Primeknit. The successor to the first NMD, the new Runner is the darker, grittier sibling donning a striking disruptive visual.

Built upon the advanced technology that shaped the original NMD, the upper canvas of the shoe is constructed with lightweight Primeknit material and designed in a textured grey colourway. Finished with an overlaid insert of tonal three-strips over the distinctive midsole, the NMD_R1 Primeknit is as structural as it is stylish — the very model of urbane utility.
