Cause who doesn t love a little ï»¿adidas shoes for men friendly sneaker competition to make the other step their game up?This year brought us more collaborations than I think we ve ever seen when it comes to sneakers. Not only did we have the usual brands dishing out collaborations left and right like New Balance, Asics, PUMA, Vans, and Saucony, but we also had adidas, Nike and even Jordan Brand joining in on the fun. Some of the most noteworthy collabs that dropped in 2015 include the Just Don x Air Jordan 2 (btw there s another colorway expected to release in January), the Pigalle x Nike LeBron 12 Elite, the Supreme x Air Jordan 5s, and the PSNY x Air Jordan 12.
I almost failed on every single Yeezy release this year and it s a little disappointing. This is not some sort of pity play on my part because nearly everybody I know that wasn t connected to a retailer or adidas directly suffered a similar fate. Rather, the disappointment is a feeling of missed opportunity that nobody adidas nmd mens took advantage of. Instead of finally giving in to the multitude of times Kanye promised that there would be Yeezys for everybody, instead we got a multitude of Sadderdays as the year went along. From so-called increases in production numbers to raffles protecting customers to apps that determined a person s worthiness to cop a pair by geography, there were adidas zx flux womens plenty of ways to score Yeezys, but often times we came up short.
With it, it s a pair I want to wear all the time but can t because the damn thing is so annoying. I would love to own a fixed or sample version that didn t have the wording on there, but I also wouldn t want adidas to come at me and say please return your Belugas and we ll send you the new version either. The shoe happened, we aired our grievances what we like and don t like about it. They fix it, it s fine. If not, we ll live too.As for the man who really made PUMA adidas zx flux mens a household name in the world of basketball, Clyde Frazier is to the brand what Stan Smith is to adidas.
And just for the record, adidas Originals, a Kicks On Fire x adidas NMD would be also be pretty cool. Hint, hint, hint& I know we all cursed the moon when alleged backdoored pairs started making their way to the Internets, but congrats if you were able to score a pair to actually wear out at retail. While I bristle at the thought of camo still being relevant in this day and age, I m happy to see early 2000s staples like BAPE still maintain relevance this decade. Bringing them together with the adidas NMD was a masterstroke of marketing on both sides.
You might think the adidas City Sock is a little too simple for it s own good, but think of the blank Primeknit upper as just that, a blank canvas where anything is possible. But as expected, adidas is taking a more sedate approach with collabs like this one with White Mountaineering where the branding might be all over the place but it s still classy enough to pull off that it s not overwhelming the shoe. Although some might say it could the silhouette could use some of that.Save for Yeezys, this might be the most bootlegged adidas sneaker this year so it only made sense that I pull a picture from adidas Originals Snapchat where this particular colorway of the NMD Human Race was on the feet of on Pharrell adidas flux white Williams.
Reaction for this slate of drops has been mixed, but those who are fans are no doubt repping hard for these, thanks to the bright colors and limitless ways you can lace them up thanks to the cage system that we ve seen since on other NMDs.Spoiler: we keep it simple for the top 2 NMDs. First up is this ultra rare friends and family Pitch Black colorway that features the much-desired black Boost cushioning and a raffle that had everybody on their phones for several hours hoping to be among the lucky ones to score a pair.
Here we talk about the next tourism fairs.
