adidas NMD sneakers combine sports traditions of the brand and technological innovations, that best demonstrates a slogan expressing their philosophy: "Draw from the past and look to the future". Already at the stage of projects the NMD shoes were expected to be the number 1 on the streets in 2016. Adidas designers love to pull out archival brand models, and so it is in this case. For inspiration they reached for reigning in the 80's running - training silhouette: Micro Pacer (1984), Rising Star (1985), and Boston Super (1986), from which impact-resistant elements of EVA foam in the midsole were taken. *Looking for references to modernity and the impact of still evolving technology it is impossible not to mention the futuristic look itself, which draws attention from the first moment. There is also an upper in a form of a "sock" adhering to the foot. As icing on the cake, we can treat the breaking popularity records, used in the sole, Boost™ foam, providing soft cushioning on the highest level.* NMD_R2 is a version that appeared on the market in December 2016, exactly a year after the release of NMD_R1! It is difficult to trace here drastic changes compared to its predecessor. *Designers introduced only cosmetic changes, such as changing an element on the heel from a rubber one the leather, and they reduced the number of components made of EVA foam in the sole from 2 to 1, and hid it from the outside.
