Foot Locker Has An Exclusive Pair Of The adidas NMD

adidas NMD 1 adidas NMD 2

The adidas NMD just might be adidas’ most popular sneaker at the moment behind the adidas Yeezy line and the adidas Ultra Boost. Fans of BOOST technology have fallen in love with the new silhouette that draws inspiration from adidas runners of the past.

Every time a new colorway releases it sells out pretty quickly and this pair should be no different. Foot Locker has collaborated with adidas to create this new pair that features an all-black Primeknit upper with black and red detailing on the overlays of the white BOOST midsole. There is no evident Foot Locker branding on this pair of NMDs but it appears that they’re exclusive to only Foot Locker Europe making them extremely difficult to get our hands on them for those of us stateside.

Would you like to see these get a stateside release? Stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for updates in the future on a potential US drop.

Author’s Take

I’m sure that many fans of the NMD are disappointed that they’ll never be able to their hands on this colorway. Oh well I guess, we can’t have it all.

It’s cool to see adidas give a lifestyle look to one of their newest popular basketball sneakers. I like the olive upper but i’m not too sure about going with suede as the material of choice.

adidas Releases The Superstar Strap Globally

The rise in popularity of Yohji Yamamoto’s adidas Y-3 imprint has led to adidas Originals imitating some of the sleeker designs to appease those who wouldn’t readily shell out the usual $300-$400 for a Y-3 pair. That thought process has been readily apparent with the Tubular and Boost series and now another silhouette is benefiting from the overhaul: the adidas Superstar. Let’s be clear that this isn’t by any means a new model. In fact, a few years back the three stripes released this women’s exclusive adidas Superstar Strap featuring crisscrossing neoprene straps and a slip-on construction similar to the Qasa series. It didn’t do all that well back then, as it came and went in a flash and was forgotten quickly. Now adidas is hoping the changing atmosphere and how we look at lifestyle sneakers will also change how this pair is recieved. Two simple colorways are available for purchase in a subtle black and white exclusive to a women’s size run once again. Check out more photos below and know that international retailers like Titolo have started stocking this pair.

adidas Just Won Legal Battle Of Their Three Parallel Stripes Branding

adidas stripes adidas-logo

Ever since I was a kid, I would see plenty of shoes rocking the stripes-on-the-side look. Only problem is, not all the shoes rocking the stripes were adidas. Many brands have decided to mimic the adidas Three Stripe look without their proper consent. adidas has not taken than lightly and it appears as if they finally took legal action to stop the wrongdoing.

It has been reported that the Court of Justice of the Europen Union has ruled that adidas can now oppose the trademark registration of parallel stripes on the side of sport-related sneakers designed by other brands. One reason adidas has decided to move forward with this is because back in 2009 there was a Belgian company called Shoe Branding Europe that filed an application to register as a trademark the two forward slashes on the side of their shoes. Although we all know adidas uses three stripes, the similarities are too similar between the two that it’s easy to mistake the two. This caused adidas to oppose the registration, but surprisingly it was dismissed on the basis that the two designs were “significantly” different. Fast-forward to a few years later and in May of 2015 the General Court has now sided with adidas’s argument now saying that the marks were not different enough being that the stripes were parallel, had the same distance between each other and shared the same width, colors and contrasting base color. Essentially it was the same look except for the lack of the extra stripe.

This latest decision has the Court of Justice uphold the General Court’s stance. A definite win for adidas.

Following a detailed overview of the men’s pair, new images of the women’s Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost are now provided, as the silhouette is a complete counterpart of the aforementioned pair.

Flaunting a pristine profile overall, the sneaker’s breathable primeknit upper is rendered in white, while its recognizable TPU cage lacing component has been replaced with a midfoot strap instead. Bearing a perforated slit design on the component to coordinate with the sneaker’s lightweight build, the sneaker is essentially a slip-on with this refined finish.

Further detailed with a matching heel unit for more reinforcement, the heavenly hue is continued towards its midsole unit as well. Subtle black accents on the tongue label and outsole provide a sense of contrast, as additional pops of red and blue are seen on the pull tabs and insoles.

You can purchase a pair at select adidas retailers now for a retail price tag of $180

I’m a fan of the model overall. I’m not entirely sold on the strap, but I do like the colorway. It’s definitely versatile for both females and males as well.

Following its initial look, a closer view at the men’s Wood Wood x adidas Ultra Boost is provided, as the sneaker essentially flaunts a clean profile.

Sporting a versatile colorway overall, black covers its primeknit upper which bears perforations throughout to allow breathability as well as ensuring a lightweight feel throughout daily wear. Unlike its traditional TPU cage lacing system, this variation’s three-stripe branding is styled individually and reinforced with canvas overlays. This refined component essentially holds the two-tone rope-style laces, while also allowing a more freedom of movement.

All resting atop a clean white midsole unit, additional white accents are applied on the heel tab and tongue label. Furthermore, the outsole is shaded in black to perfectly coordinate with its predominant colorway. Finishing touches include co-branding on the insoles and tongue. In addition, the sneaker’s monochromatic palette is subtly contrasted by touches of red and blue, which is seen on the model’s rear pull tabs. Also, it can be seen on the insoles via its respective logos.

I’m a fan of the Denmark-based fashion label and while this model is pretty straightforward, I still like it. The refined caged system is pretty nice as well. You can’t go wrong with the colorway too.

Check Out The Brand New adidas Ultra Boost Grape

ADIDAS ULTRA BOOST a ADIDAS ULTRA BOOST b ADIDAS ULTRA BOOST c

 

Whether or not you like the look of the gradient upper on some of the Ultra Boost models, there’s no denying that this new look makes the shoe more versatile when it comes to what you can do with it. Take for example the adidas Ultra Boost Grape, making good use of the gradient design on the Primeknit upper, this is definitely one of the cleanest colorways I’ve see on the shoe.

This Grape colorway makes good use of the gradient design as it utilizes it to place similar colors such as purple, turquoise and black to create a very harmonious feel on the shoe. The rest of the Primeknit upper appears to follow suit as the same colors are knitted together to create a really dope look. A white Boost midoles, black rubbed outsole, black Three Stripes branding and the two-toned heel cage complete the look of the shoe. Stay tuned to find out when these will release.

Author’s Take

For the most part, I really don’t like the gradient look on the Ultra Boost, but this Grape colorway works so well that I may just have to go ahead and pick up a pair. Great looking shoe!
