Update: This adidas NMD R1 releases on August 3rd exclusively at Champs Sports.
Remember the original adidas Consortium NMD R1 that released in December 2015 alongside the “OG” colorway? Although it was overshadowed by the blue and red accented original NMD when the shoe made its grand entrance, now it’s one of the most sought-after and highest-priced NMD’s on the secondary market. For those still after a pair, perhaps these will be an acceptable—and much cheaper—alternative. The hottest sneaker silhouette on Earth arrives in a look quite similar to the original “Key to the City” colorway by adidas Consortium, featuring a black Primeknit upper with black reflective stripes and grey midsole inserts. While this GR version has less reflective detailing than the OG Consortium release, the similarities between the two are certainly enough to make these a must-have for NMD aficionados. Check out the official images here, and stick with Sneaker News for a confirmed release date.
