The adidas NMD franchise has taken on plenty of new looks and colorways since it’s 2015 release. Now, adidas is taking a slightly newer approach to the standard R1, retaining most of the same features but adding some bold new branding.

The adidas NMD_R1 is getting an interesting new update later this year. Thanks to German-based sneaker The Good Will Out, we have an official look at a new pair of NMDs not set to release until August. This pair appears to a very standard NMD_R1, though there are a couple of very noticeable factors that make this “Solar Yellow” colorway one to keep your eye on. First, this NMD begins with a chalk white knit upper. The knit pattern of this pair is intriguing, appearing to feature directional lines similar to the Primeknit of the adidas NMD City Sock. While very little information is available, these are sure to be not your average pair. Next, the bright new NMD colorway adds purple to the forward midsole brick and heel tab, as well as neon yellow to the two rear bricks, providing all of the vibrant colors in this pair. Finally, the “Solar Yellow” NMD_R1 is complete by purple NMD branding across the medial side of the shoe.


The clean new take on the adidas NMD_R1 is scheduled to release on August 1st, 2018. The “Solar Yellow” look will retail for the usual $130 price point from both adidas and select retailers. Check out the official images below for a better look at the exciting new colorway, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more adidas NMD release news.
