The Adidas Boost has been a running-shoe inspired technology that provides excellent energy return. As a result, no energy is wasted on every step.

The removal of the rubber plugs on the lateral side, retaining only the lateral plug makes for a cleaner silhouette.

Underlying Story of Adidas NMD_R2 Primeknit

The Adidas NMD_R2 Primeknit originates from the original Adidas NMD sneaker which launched in 2015.

The creation of the NMD was led by Nic Galway, Vice President of Global Design for Adidas Originals. In creating the shoe, the Adidas veteran designer wanted to make this silhouette recognizable even from a distance.

The Lego-like block may seem like it’s just for the NMD aesthetic, but in reality, it supports the Boost foam.

The NMD silhouette doesn’t have reinforcements, so it’s the elements of the upper that give structure to the shoe.

This revolutionary silhouette was the most talked-about in Adidas history. It was released in various colorways, and further models were issued based on the Adidas Originals silhouette.
