A lighter and cleaner version of the original NMD is about to hit retailers. It features a unique lacing system and Primeknit uppers…but is the price-tag too much?
A new colorway of the Human Race NMD is set to hit stockists in just a few days. There’s been quite some hype about this sneaker and the official release date has finally been revealed. If you’re unfamiliar with this sneaker, it’s a collaborative NMD between Pharrell Williams and ADIDAS.
The sleek looking sneaker is an even more minimal version of the original NMD. Primeknit cover the foot in comfort. The plastic hardware reinforcement sits lower on the shoe – this allows less clutter, ensuring a clean design while still offering support to your foot. The reinforcement cage also acts as an eye-stay. This unique lacing system results in a sneaker that is laced like a military boot. The PHARRELL x ADIDAS Human Race NMD ‘Scarlet’ sits on a white BOOST midsole and will retail for $215 USD.
For such a light sneaker it sure comes with a heavy price-tag…would you pay over $200USD for this shoe?
