adidas NMD_R1 PK (White OG)
UPDATE: Weeks after its European release back in May, the NMD_R1 PK 'White OG' finally has a US release date – July 15. The day will also see the stateside release of the NMD City Sock Primeknit 'Core Black'. Mark it in your calendar, NMD day is coming!
UPDATE: It's coming! The May 28th release for the pure white reincarnation of the OG NMD_R1 PK is only a matter of days away now. As one of the most eagerly anticipated releases of 2016, this is one shoe that doesn't need any extra temptation to lure away our hard-earned dollars. that said, adidas have gone and done it to us anyway with these tantalising shots of the pristine runner. Releasing May 28th at top-tier adidas Originals stockists.
UPDATE: Get ready to mark those calendars, because adidas have finally announced a release date for the whited-out incarnation of OG NMD_R1 PK. They'll go on sale May 28th, but don't expect to cop a pair without a struggle. These will no doubt be the most coveted release of the month.
Is there any new silhouette more hyped than the NMD? We think not! Retros will always dominate sneaker culture, but a model able to cause camp outs and resale blow outs without the validation of a celebrity co-sign or bounty of colabs? That's a feat all but unheard of in this day and age. You can expect a flood of NMD releases to hit the market over the coming months to satiate the parched masses, but expect few to be as sought after as this white-out take on the OG NMD. All-white upper + patriotic red, white and blue midsole + summer = instant sell out! Comprende?
Available from select adidas Originals stockists this May.
