adidas and White Mountaineering are back. After taking a relatively slow 2018, the longtime partners recently showed off a new collection at the Japanese label’s Paris Fashion Week show, including a bright new Nite Jogger collaboration.
adidas and White Mountaineering are teaming up once again. Despite a few outdoor collections in 2018, the collaboration between the German and Japanese brands has not quite made the same noise it did in 2016 & 2017, until now. Recently, during White Mountaineering’s Paris Fashion Week show, the outdoor brand debuted a new project with adidas, including the brand’s latest revamped silhouette, the Nite Jogger 2019.
First released in 1979, the Nite Jogger was built for visibility. Not the same sort of high-tech, high-fashion 3M visibility we think of now, but more along the lines of vibrant, eye-grabbing colors to help runners be spotted during low-light hours. The 2019 Nite Jogger stays true to the bright running origins, albeit with a much more modern look. The new silhouette appears to feature a one-piece mesh upper, supported by a stiff TPU lacing system and elastic bands around the heel. A plastic midsole clip rests around the heel of the shoe, and a full-length Boost midsole is added for maximum comfort.
During the PFW show, White Mountaineering and adidas debuted three initial colorways of their Nite Jogger silhouette. All three pairs add the WHITE branding hidden underneath the Three Stripes, as well as loud branding on the heel clip. Two of the colorways feature mixed color schemes in grey and black with maroon or orange highlights, while the third is the most eye-catching of the pack. Beginning with a white and grey base, layers of teal, yellow, orange and maroon are added to create a vibrant new look.
The White Mountaineering x adidas Nite Jogger was not given an expected release date, so we’ll have to wait a bit before we hear more. The retail price is likely to be more than the usual $140 for the reworked silhouette, so be sure to set some cash aside when we have more information regarding the release. In the meantime, check out the press photos from the show below, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more exciting adidas news.
UPDATE (7/9/2019): The White Mountaineering x adidas Nite Jogger has still not yet been announced for release, though our friend SoleByJC has shared in-hand images of the new look. This likely means we will see the brightly-colored pairs dropping sometime in the coming months, though this remains to be seen until adidas makes their official announcement.
UPDATE (9/3/2019): Thanks to an official announcement made by adidas through their release calendar yesterday, we now know the White Mountaineering Nite Jogger will land in stores later this month on September 26th, 2019. The special edition release will retail for an elevated retail price of $160 from both adidas and select retailers.
