adidas’s NMD Racer has seen its fair share of bold reworks over the last little while, including a punchy “Solar Pink” model that first appeared back in January and a pattern-heavy release designed in tandem with JUICE. And now, the signature Three Stripes runner returns sporting an all-new design dynamic.

Helping to complement the white Primeknit-infused upper is the decorative splashes of black found on the vamp and side area stripe pattern, in addition to the speckled accents found on the ankle collar. However, the brown-hued leather heel counter and the “Whitaker Car Club” heel tab steel the show, acting as the shoe’s artistic points of difference. Expected to fetch a price of $180 USD, the release date for this new adidas NMD Racer still has yet to be confirmed.
