Now Available: 4 New adidas NMD Colorways

I had a different reaction than most the first time I saw the adidas NMD. Most within the sneaker culture loved the shoe. Adored it. I didn’t. It was a unique lifestyle look that featured an almost Lego-like quality to it. But as with all things ahead of their time, I eventually got hip to adidas‘ game.

And now? This is one of my favorite new silhouettes and one of the shoes I’m most excited about in 2016.

The NMD began as an updated take on three classic shoes: the Micro Pacer (1984), the Rising Star (1985), and the Boston Super (1986). All three pushed the envelope stylistically and the NMD used this history as a starting point. From there, designer Nic Galway gave the old technology a modern twist with a Boost midsole and a Primeknit upper. In that way, Galway turned the NMD into somewhat of a cousin of many of the other sneakers he has designed, including the Pure Boost, Tubular, Qasa Racer, and Yeezy Boost.

This shoe is a perfect example of how adidas Originals is killing the game right now. The NMD is here to promote an on-the-go lifestyle. It’s built for someone who has a lot going on in their life while featuring a definitive lifestyle look. Within hours of its unveiling, you could tell by reactions that it was going to be a key lifestyle sneaker for the spring season and beyond.

The only initial problem? It was often hard to get. People loved it too much.
