interested to see others opinion on this but the hype game has swung wholy toward Adidas recently hasn't it?

Nike had it locked down with the whole Fly, Free, Fuel bank era but haven't seemed to release anything decent in ages …

true og sneaker heads - I know there are some on here like Syd - will have appreciated Adidas as much as Nike - so a new design that gets release that incorporates new technology and materials will always receive interest. Kanye has just made the appeal spread to the sheeple who need the media to tell them how to dress and what to wear.

Hype game is everywhere not just Adidas and Nike - Nike been churning out bolloks for the last decade in terms of quality and build and still people buy it.

Adidas for me are replicating Nike by releasing a new trainer in 1 or 2 colourways in limited numbers then slowly but surely releasing more colourways and offshoots. Look when the NMD first got released - how man colourways have there been since this. But this is nothing new.

Seem to be in store only. Apparently they're quite freely available in Italy still which is annoying as I was in Milan the day before they dropped at the start of the month

Foot Lockers in Italy have full size runs.

Foot Patrol have apparently 30 pairs but this may be a lie because they're stocking mens and womens.
Niketown LDN have unreserved pairs for sale tomorrow but not that many.

Spring 2017 is GR.

Adidas have made big moves in restructuring their product teams/ranges too, nmd is a great example of this - cutting the number of styles offered and going really deep with colour & material iterations - pushing that really hard as they are focused on less messages. Granted not new but it's very effective and the result is a really clear impression of what Adidas 'is'

They have hired a lot of designers recently, (3 high profile hires from Nike). Kanye is a(n effective) of the overall strategy

Opening their own US factory is a big move too so will be interesting to see what comes out of that

This is an interesting read

Err that 'less than 50 pairs in UK' can't be true surely? If so, how has this twat got 12% of the UK's stock.
