UPDATE: The second-gen White Mountaineering nomad has arrived and we like what we see. Both the black and navy colourway have a streamlined silhouette on-foot and they look super comfortable. They've just sold out at Overkill, but get hunting and you may still be able to snag a pair elsewhere.
The ongoing collaboration between White Mountaineering and adidas continues to bear fruit with the NMD_R2. The shoe features the rejigged Boost sole with its conceptual shank design, taped seams and dagger-sharp silhouette. White Mountaineering have completely reworked the R2's streamlined upper with a multi-segmented design and the addition of tongue in place of the typical sock-fit design. Branded Three Stripe taping has also been added to the toe, as seen on previous WM colabs, as well as an extra heel piece for some tiered goodness.
The White Mountaineering x adidas NMD_R2 is set to drop on March 1 from select stockists, including Caliroots.
