Featuring a new runner silhouette and facelifted r1 design

Not much is stopping Adidas now. While Nike on a roll coming out with classic throwbacks, the brand with three stripes steps forward with an expansion of the NMD range, dubbed the Urban Racer Pack.

Primary portion of the pack is a new variation of the R1, called the Racer. We’re not sure whether this is a direct competitor to Nike’s Flyknit Racer, but regardless of its performance capabilities, the look of this model is divisive, to say the least.

The Runner is basically the R1 silhouette reimagined with a sleeker design. Notice that the lace straps are more a bit more refined compared to the R1 PK, and the one piece construction closely resembles the patterns found on the Ultraboost 4.0. Introduction colours will mostly be black and white, but adds highlighter colours onto the now deconstructed front block, while the rear block has been moved further back to reinforce the heel section. The rubber heel guard is now replaced with suede, but the NMD heel pull still remains.

Meanwhile, the updated R1 design still retains most of its original cues, save for a cageless design and STLT weaving adorning the upper. Parley already has a collaboration model on the way, featuring triple black colours with ‘Spirit Blue’ STLT weaves.

Will this revive the hype of the NMD? We think not, and we honestly fear that the NMD will soon go out the way the Roshe 2.0 did, on the shelves, awaiting a buyer to come and snatch one up – which isn’t very likely, but then again, the hype is all up to you readers. Y’all decide whether this is a cop or drop.
