Adidas is a giant of the sneakers industry which has pushed European Sneaker brands forward alongside it. The massive history of Adidas has seen countless successful launches over the years. These releases have challenged the competition continuously with innovative technology and design. The ingenuity of the several advancements that came about thanks to Adidas is not lost on anyone.
What are Adidas NMD Shoes?
Adidas NMD debuted in a relatively low-key manner in New York City in a special launch event back on the 9th of December, 2015. It was designed by Nic Galway, a 16 year veteran of Adidas. Working on the massive success of the UltraBOOST, the new design was able to take the German sportswear giant’s flagship Primeknit and BOOST technologies, and successfully combine them with design cues from Adidas classics like the Boston Super, Rising Star, and Micropacer.
Consequently, a perfect blend of the old and the new, and a relative oddity was born. Inspired by the classics while being a fresh take, the NMD is a triumph in an era where celebrity collaboration and endorsements, and the craze for limited-edition collaborations rule the roost when it comes to the success of new sneakers. One would be hard pressed to find any modern silhouette from the recent past that can compete with the NMD’s ‘instant classic’ status. Some NMD models are available without laces, furthering Adidas's intent for the past to embrace the future.
The NMD name is a take on the word 'nomad'. A reference to the nomads' nature into the core values of the shoe itself. The Adidas NMD is somewhat of a lifestyle shoe, packed with cutting-edge technologies that pay tribute to Adidas shoes of the past; the Adidas NMD looks forward towards a new future that is always evolving for people on the move. Keeping strength, flexibility and stability in mind, the concept of movement was the main objective of this line. This shoe is sure to keep you going for the whole day with comfort. It's built to last through the long days of walking around grinding away. Sneakerheads can definitely respect the hustle life.
