Got mine, they're ok enough to keep. Lego bits not so bad if they match the show colour.

Gats to me fit true to size so if you were a 42 in CP's you'd be 8.5/9 in them

this isn't a dig at you mob, I think you dress well but NMD's are the lowest of the low, the Limp Biscuit of the trainer world.
They have been made, marketed and distributed to be a commercial, obtainable instagramable "sneakerhead" shoe.
Adidas are really offensively killing the game at the moment, they are just churning out model after model, colourway after colourway, collab after collab. Milking everything for what it's worth.
Just looking at what trainers they have released to prestige accounts in the past month alone… Tubualr instinct, tubular doom, nmd rx1, nmd cs1, tubular invader strap, pureboost pk zg, nmd human made, tubular nova, ultra boost, ultra boost uncaged.
You wouldn't even have that many releases across all brands in a month at Foot Patrol back in the St Annes Court days.
It really does seem like a case of if you throw enough shit at the wall, some of it will stick. And when you can shift 700,000 pairs of nmd's in a day then you can't blame them, but i thought it was a trend that people who have been "in the game" for a while would have seen and ignored.
Every single trainer i've listed up there to me is completely irrelevant minus the ultra boost. Just cannon fodder that will be forgotten as quickly as they arrived.
This is the person that adidas are currently marketing to…

NMD's are everywhere. Pretty much on the feet of any Instagram kid/girl.

Also bar the ultraboosts which are performance the rest are 'originals'. That really is their customer, mass market.

@themistake

Even tho I totally agree with you - I think Nike killed the game along time ago and Adidas just following suit.

whilst I do agree to a lot of extent I'm surprised people have this attitude with Adidas and shocked of their tactic. whys everyone shocked they're over saturating the market with a highly commercial popular shoe and making shit loads of money. They're not an underground niche brand, its not like it will damage their credibility. They have absolutely nothing to gain by keeping those styles limited. Plus the same company has done the opposite with the Yeezy's – made it impossible to get and then the same people criticise them for making NMD;s, Boosts etc etc in a million colour ways.

just my two cents, as I said I agree a lot, Adidas is pure fodder, but I reckon from some head honcho they're making a big attempt at hitting Nike off the top spot…

Nah, enter a raffle, which if you win you need to respond within a limited time. To then travel God knows how many miles to purchase in store. I'll leave it thanks
