the adidas NMD_Racer has had one of the slower rollouts we’ve seen from the Three Stripes in recent years. This week, we got an early look at the next new colorway arriving soon. Check out the “Shock Red” NMD_Racer, coming soon.

adidas is back with another new look for their NMD_Racer. The silhouette has been slow to gain as much popularity as other versions in the franchise, but that doesn’t seem to bother the Three Stripes. The Racer, a lifestyle shoe, takes inspiration from some of the iconic athletic shoes in the history of adidas, the adiZero series. adiZero was created for running with two different ideas in mind: reduce weight, and increase speed. The Racer hopes to combine these two design directives with the popularity and comfort of the NMD, slimming the silhouette into a more distinct runner shape. The latest colorway of the Racer to surface online shows a slightly new look for the silhouette. The Primeknit upper of this pair begins in black, including the lacing system and striped branding. The toe box features a wide set of rectangular stripes reaching from the toe towards the midfoot, all constructed from neon “Shock Red” threads. This same tone is present on the heel, where it eclipses a piece of the supportive heel cup. Finally, the new look is completed by NMD branding along the top of each quarter panel.


The next new adidas NMD_Racer Primeknit colorway is scheduled for release sometime soon, though no date is currently available. The special “Shock Red” makeup will retail for $180 from both adidas and select retailers. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more NMD release news.
