Even though adidas Originals’ NMD comes across as a running shoe, it’s likely that most of the shoe’s owners use it as a lifestyle sneaker. Bridging this divide, the Three-Striped sportswear giant is preparing a strictly lifestyle variant of this modern icon – the NMD “Chukka.”

The NMD Chukka is, as you’d expect, a chukka boot – one that we can expect to see in both red and black variants, if these teasers on the brand’s official Instagram are anything to go by.

It’s a bit difficult to make out from the shots provided, but from what we can see, the NMD Chukka will have a suede upper and a white boost sole with colored plugs that match the upper. There are laces, although eyelets are kept to a minimum and only feature on a small section of the upper. The woven heel tab looks much like the one spotted on the NMD Runner.

There’s no release info as of yet, but adidas promises that it’s “coming soon.”
