adidas nmd r2

ADIDAS NMD R1 is no doubt the hottest sneakers of 2016 but ADIDAS have not been lazy and been some re-designing work. The new version of the NMDs was due to be released in 2017 but I guess ADIDAS didn't want to delay the release and decided to do it as fast as possible! The NMD R2 still retain its lightweight, comfort, and simple design that has attracted millions of fans.

The design has been simplified as ADIDAS removed the micropacer elements to feature a full length boost side. The medial side features an enlarged shank for support.

Primeknit pattern has also changed drastically compared to the R1. Large chunks of stripes fill the upper with a suede heel and of course a sock fit on the ankle. What do you think of the NMD R2? Personally, I feel that the Primeknit patterns on the Ultra Boost 3.0 looks so much better and they should have just used the same pattern on the R2 but who am i kidding? That will never happen. Give me your views!
