We’ve seen some radical NMDs in our time, but this new nomad takes it a step further. Previewed by an Instagram leaker as the ‘NMD_Runner PK’, this oddity tinkers with R1 tooling to birth a whole new beast.
Most of the sneaker's features follow a straight and narrow design path: the suede overlays, heat-bonded branding and striated Primeknit are all sensible. Where things start to get a little freaky is on the midsole. The beloved nomad shanks have been geared for treacherous trails by taking elements from the terrain itself, with little rocky nodes covering a split shank and seeming to flow over onto the toe. You’ve got to give it to adidas – this is one wild creation!
No concrete release date for the NMD_Runner PK has been named (nor has it been confirmed as legitimate) but the leak says it will hit stores in 2018.
