Just as they did with Pharrell’s debut NMD colorway, adidas will be celebrating the 5th anniversary of the silhouette with a special Primeknit edition of its linage’s most famous colorway.
Despite only being half a decade old, the adidas NMD has seen the highs and lows of the sneaker world. An explosive start saw it rise almost instantly to the top of popularity — and when we say top, we mean the very top. It, along with the Ultra BOOST, since saw a steep decline in “gram-worthy” shots, but still remained one of adidas’ biggest movers — and that’s something worth celebrating. The OG burst onto the scene with its iconic royal and red plugs popping from a stark black and white base. Its simplicity was unmatched, as was its out-of-this-world comfort. This new NMD boasts those exact two factors in an all-new sock-like Primeknit upper. Taping is gone, instead relying on barely-there stitching for its Three Stripe and vamp detail, while added pulls now appear in leather.
A release date for the adidas NMD R1 Primeknit “OG” has been set by adidas US for March 11th, 2021, with pairs set to arrive here via their official webstorefrom 3 am ET for $180.
If you’re planning on picking up a pair on the day, make sure you head to our dedicated adidas Release Dates Calendar to set yourself a reminder for the drop.
