There is never too much time between sneaker posts and this time I’m sharing my favorite brand, style and print, all in one!
I couldn’t have lucked out more when Adidas decided to bring back the super popular coveted NMD R1 snake print from last year that I featured in this post in an updated leopard print version. Both the black and the white version of last year’s style sold out in days, never to return to shelves and anyone looking to score a pair had to pay hefty gouged prices from third party sellers on sites like Ebay.
Adidas got the memo and brought back the look, this time with trendy leopard trim. They come in a white with tan and black with gray, and both are super cute! If you’ve followed around for a while, you’ll have seen me gush about these sneakers in the numerous styles I own them in. But in case you’re new around here, the Adidas NMD R1 running sneaker style features a sock-like design that enhance the fit and breathability. I don’t typically get my sneakers to up my workout game, but rather as a casual fashion style option but makes it’s case for a viable athletic shoe that ticks off boxes in both the practical and style departments.
The animal print take these over the top for me, making them my new favorites in my whole NMD family. I love the low-key retro ‘80s Adidas silhouette with the modern touch and improved comfort technology. I will easily be wearing the black pair through fall and non-inclement weather days in winter, and the white pair will be my go-to for warmer sunny days.
I highly recommend either pair (they run a little big so be sure to size down a half size), especially if you wanted last year’s version and missed out. I linked a bunch of options in my Shop the Post and you can find other pairs I own and love in a previous post here.
