LAUNCHING 19TH NOVEMBER
For the latest adidas Consortium collaboration, Packer has created an NMD Runner in a colourway that pays tribute to their long legacy and vast knowledge in the field. Bold and simple, vibrant and fresh, but also steeped in history, the colours conjure the image of athletic apparel worn in years bygone.
With the NMD, adidas has firmly established a philosophy that emphasizes the close relationship between heritage design references and progressive product innovation. Launched as part of the Originals range, it is equipped with a boost™ sole, flexible upper – Primeknit in this case – and an elasticated ribbed collar for sock-like comfort.
It is almost as if the sneaker’s colourist has time-traveled forward from the mid-1980s. A light blue/indigo upper with navy and turquoise detailing plus flashes of red combine on a shoe reminiscent of the iconic tracksuits from that era. Inspired by a vintage piece from the adidas vault, Packer reminds us of the rush of color so omnipresent in sportswear 30 years ago.
The adidas Consortium x Packer NMD Runner PK takes established colours and presents them in a way that looks completely 2016. It is a bold statement in an often-monochrome marketplace.
