The Primeknit Japan Pack Core Black was introduced a couple weeks ago and the sneaker has finally arrived at select retailers. The upper features a black stripe Primeknit pattern with a “Brand With Three Stripes” text in Japanese and it sits on top of a contrasting white Boost midsole. The translucent rubber outsole finishes the sneaker off by adding a nice touch.
This comes constructed out of a Primeknit upper that has been colored in black with a subtle texture placed throughout. Additional features include a black leather heel tab, an elastic ankle, “The Brand With The Three Stripes” text in Japanese on the Three Stripes branding on the side panels, a full-length white Boost midsole, and a gum rubber outsole.
The you see above comes dressed in a Grey and Shock Pink color scheme. The open mesh upper comes dressed in a light Grey hue, as does the heel tab and laces. A darker shade of Grey is spotted on the Three Stripes to create a semi-tonal look up top. So, where’s the Pink? It’s kind of hard to tell with this picture, but the Pink hue claims the entire pull tab on the heel, that’s it. A White Boost midsole and Gum rubber outsole complete the look of the shoe.
Dubbed the Raw Pink, what really set this pair apart from past releases is the new geometric shadow knit pattern placed on the Primeknit-constructed uppers.The adidas NMD R2 starts off with a Raw Pink upper paired up with asymmetrical EVA plugs. Creating contrast to the shoe is the Trace Green hits noted on the sock-like collar and stripe detailing on the lateral side. A tonal suede heel tab, a Black and White branded heel tab, White Boost midsole and Black outsole complete the major components of the shoe.
