adidas has unveiled a brand new iteration of its NMD_R1 V2. Following its bright “Mexico City” colorway seen around the beginning of the month, the German sportswear giant, this time around, has opted for a darker “Munich” makeover that honors the national colors of Germany. This release is part of the “United By Sneakers” collection, a series of models that nod to popular destinations around the globe.
Starting at the top of the shoe is a gradient “adidas” patch logo stamped over a breathable mesh tongue. Most of the uppers come in a sleek black mesh and Primeknit weave, complemented by hits of rubber and taped overlays, offering textural contrast to the monochromatic body. A large ripstop pull tab is placed at the heel, held together by a black rubber EVA insert that extends out to the rear quarter. Furthermore, bold Three Stripes branding is placed at the sidewalls, while a bright red-yellow two-toned BOOST midsole rounds up the design of the patriotic colorway.
The adidas NMD_R1 V2 “Munich” is currently available on adidas’ website for $140 USD.
