For its third flagship exclusive drop, adidas Originals is releasing an NMD_R2 inspired by Tokyo and the Japanese capital’s role in global culture, fashion and technology. The latest take on the NMD_R2 is influenced by the city’s urban explorers, with a knitted-mesh upper on top of classic white BOOST to ensure comfort. Other features include metallic lace tips, reflective yarn in the shoelaces, and strips on the heel patch, tongue logo and sockliner which represent Tokyo’s famous Shibuya crossing. This elevated NMD_R2 is dropping globally on May 20 exclusively in store at adidas Originals flagships in Berlin, New York, Mexico City, Paris, London, Milan, Moscow, Shanghai, Tokyo and Seoul.
As well as the flagship-exclusive drops, adidas Originals is also working on some new YEEZY colorways. Check out the latest potential YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 which will apparently drop later this year.
