Battle Of The Kicks: NB 247 Luxe MRL247LB VS Adidas NMD R1 Champs

Sharing is caring!

I’m still wondering when not if the New Balance NB 247 will totally overshadow and disrupt the Adidas NMD. One thing is very clear, the Adidas NMD has finally reached its peak and is actually now on a decline. I️ wrote a post about the current status of the NMD , see link below

The Raiders Inspired Tri Color Air More Uptempo 96 Exceeded My Expectations

I️ think  people are not totally sold on the NB 247 or any other New Balance sneakers because of the brand’s assumed conservative views. But I’m not here to talk  about politics though; yesterday I️ finally picked up a pair of the  NB 247 Luxe and put them next to the Adidas NMD R1 Champs and once again I’m amazed at how great of a shoe the NB247 is in comparison to the other lifestyle sneakers. Check out the pictures below and let me know what your thoughts are on both sneakers.

Upper materials:

For the NB 247 luxe, we have a combination of knit and  premium nubuck materials while the NMD is fully covered in primeknit.
I definitely like the pattern of the knit material on the NB 247 luxe over the Pk built on the NMD’s. Even the laces on the NB 247 are leather built
The heel features suede materials on the NB 247 luxe in addition to leather materials on the pull tab while the NMD has a nylon tab and a EVA heel counter.


Revlite cushioning on the NB 247 intended to keep you rolling for 24 hours, 7 days a week hence the 247 name. The NMD has the boost midsole reinforced with EVA inserts on the wall.

In my opinion not only does the NB 247 luxe looks better, ut it is also built with more durable materials and has better cushioning and only costs about $129 while the Adidas NMD R1 Champs costs about $170.
