With the successful launch of the Addidas NMD from year one, Adidas is following up the NMD R1 with the R2. This model looks very similar to the first one but they made some slight adjustments that I think will add to the comfort of the Adidas NMD. The biggest adjustment I think was removing parts of those”Lego” blocks that raised eyebrows from the beginning but ultimately was a cool style point. I believe that they also added stability to the shoot that was not needed in a relaxed lifestyle model, so the R2 has more of a pure boost feel which I think is the most comfortable model next to the utra boost.
The prime knit upper on the R2 has an interesting design, reminds me of the Nike Roshe Run. What are your thoughts on the new model?
