Continuing their collection which celebrates dominant female athletes, adidas looks to their world-record hurdler Keni Harrison to apply her touches to a special-edition NMD R1.
The 2020 Tokyo silver medallist takes a simplistic approach to her collaboration, delivering a pair comprised of tonal light lilacs and beiges throughout, but adds unique touches through atypical materials and bold oversized bling. The latter is fairly obvious as the pair’s champion, with KENIKREW lettering — a nod to her avid fanbase — and 12.20 — her world record 100m time — clad in gold and enamel at the forefoot. As aforementioned, the minimal complexion relies on colors in the beige-cream-lilac spectrum, instead opting for material choice as its key ingredient. At the forefoot, you’ll find a typical woven mesh, before meeting a tracksuit-like fleece at the midfoot and tongue. In the rear, you’ll find a heavily tumbled leather quarter panel and pull, with the atypical materials finished at the semi-translucent cream outsole.
If you are 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.
