Published on Author adminLeave a comment

Can’t resist wearing your NMDs in the winter? adidas Originals is dropping the lovable City Sock silhouette with the much-needed Gore-Tex layer that acts as a protectant against poor climates. While the black Primeknit version seems better suited for all-conditions wear, adidas is getting a bit audacious by offering up a white/grey color as an option to wear in the worst weather settings. For the reset of you adidas NMDs, these two-toned options should be right up your alley, so get ready for a release at select adidas retailers on Friday,

The Adidas NMD is the brand’s most buzzy line of lifestyle sneakers not called Yeezys, which is part of the reason the NMD earned a spot at number two on our list of the “8 Most Popular Sneakers of Summer 2017.” The NMD family comes in many forms, from the original NMD R1 to Pharrell’s hippie-tinged NMD Hu series. But the City Sock, which first debuted in 2016, pushes the NMD’s futuristic vibes to Jetsons levels. The laceless design still delivers convenience and comfort, but now is turning into a full-on maximalist canvas, thanks to a new leopard-print Primeknit upper and rusty orange details.

Recently showcased in a Core Black colorway with hits of red and blue, the adidas NMD City Sock 2 has now surfaced in another new color option that will be making its way to retailers next week.

This adidas NMD City Sock 2 comes equipped with a lightweight Primeknit upper in a combination of Black and Noble Indigo. Other details include orange stripes on the ankle collar, a white full-length Boost midsole with a Black EVA insert on the medial side, and a black rubber outsole.

In addition to the patterned upper, these new Adidas NMD City Sock 2 sneakers feature horizontal stitching where laces would be on more prehistoric kicks—a wink at the way sneakers used to look before Adidas booted them into the 22nd century. The Texas Longhorns–ish burnt orange color pops up on the NMD’s signature molded supports on the midsole—but is more a complement to the white/black scheme than an ill-considered design flourish. And if you think the leopard print is just for show, well, okay, it is—but it’s also weirder and cooler than it seems. Thanks to what Adidas calls its “Shadow Knit” technique, as the shoe turns, it changes how dark or light the leopard print appears. Think of the print less like a leopard than as a robot leopard from the future built to camouflage itself between city buildings. Appropriate, really, for the shoe we reach for when we’re feeling futuristic.

An all-black adidas NMD City Sock called, “Ankoku Toshi Jutsu” is a new colorway made with The Good Will Out. The shoe is inspired by Shinobi, the male ninjas of feudal Japan and “Ankoku Toshi Jutsu” is their technique which allowed them to see in complete darkness. Featuring a black primeknit upper with matching EVA insert overlays, the shoe is completed with a matching Boost midsole and ripped outsole for extra grip.
