2015, by any sort of standards, was a banner year for Adidas NMD R1 Pink Grey Womens
. From a business standpoint, sales boomed for the brand with the three stripes, while culturally, the label was more prevalent than ever with both discerning sneakerheads and the athleisure-loving masses. High-profile collaborations with Pharrell and Pusha T helped and Yeezy—an entire brand of sneakers and apparel built from the ground up alongside perhaps the most influential man in street fashion alive today—opened the company up to new fashion frontiers. But even without celebrities driving home the idea that Adidas is the "it" sneaker label of the moment, the brand's own products have reach new levels of awesomeness. The insanely cool and comfortable Ultra Boost, deemed by Adidas when it first debuted as "the greatest running sneaker of all-time," can actually make a legitimate claim for that title. Futurecraft, Adidas's new line of concept shoes, was responsible for the world's first running shoe with a usable 3-D printed sole.
Last January the Adidas NMD Primeknit Black And White
“Pink/Grey” pack quietly released, and most missed out on a chance to cop the beauts. It was an exclusive to Offspring so a restock wasn’t likely – until now. Our prayers have been heard because it’ll drop again on adidas.
The “Tri-Color” Pack consists of two adidas NMD releases that are dressed in either Black and/or White. Built with a Glitch Camouflage upper with a Tri-Colored Three Stripes on the sides. Each shoe is completed with a clean White Boost sole.
This Adidas NMD R2 White Core Red Two Toned
comes in a Running White and Core Black color combination. As you can see, the uppers will feature a White glitch camouflage across the uppers while crafted with Primeknit. The Tri-Color nickname is due to the three colors used across the three stripes which are Black, Black and Red. Completing the look is White on the Boost midsole, EVA Pod overlays and outsole.
Futurecraft is showing our intent for the future. It goes much deeper than just the two shoes, the Superstar and 3D printed runner. I've always been given an opportunity to be pioneering. And I want to give that freedom to new designers. Don't just sit at a desk and draw [a sneaker]—think about how you could make it. What do those processes allow you to do that you couldn't do before? And you'll see those elements start to show up in Adidas products in the future. But it's a mindset, not just a product.
