Def legit.

On the NMDs, stock here in Ireland didn't sell out too quickly and saw some Asian lad buy 6 pairs. Supposedly the NMDs are the least comfortable out of the pures and the ultras.

I've got to say, I own a couple of pairs of pureboosts and a pair of the first black NMDs and the NMDs are way more comfortable.

When did comfort come into play? The Asian breh ain't buying 6 pairs to protect his feet.

New NMDs are really uncomfortable in the heel imo no padding and quite a solid bit of plastic
Knitted ones might be better

US drop aswell. Definitely weren't to kit out his brahs back home. Straight up on the resale market. Not sure if the resale margin on the non-Primeknit NMDs is worth the hassle, although the footlocker exclusive blacks are commanding a higher price.

Really? Haven't tried the NMDs but first version pure boost were near unbeatable for comfort. Second version not as much.

I meant to say ultra boosts, I've never tried on pure boosts but the NMDs I have are amazingly comfortable. They're not the new knitted ones, they're made out of a neoprene type deal.

Do Concepts releases drop outside the Concepts store? And they don't ship from their Cambridge location do they?

All those new Adidas look like a Nike rip off with a few years lag. They just have their own sole, which is cool mind, but the design is way too similar…

Anyone grab the mesh NMD? Thought about it but thought they looked a bit wank compared to the primeknit.

Not a fan (at all) of the Air Max 1 silhouette, but these look interesting

Pretty neat.

Like those AM1's but they look kinda flimsy. Like those wafer-thin leather deconstructed NB's.
