So, after coming to the realisation that I need to purchase clothes more regularly in order to keep my content fresh and up to date, I decided to treat myself to a fresh new pair of trainers. Now, it’s been four years since I last purchased a pair of trainers! That’s a hell of a long time right?! And, if I can remember correctly the last pair of trainers that I purchased was over a year ago which two pairs of Ralph Lauren tennis shoes from the Ralph Lauren outlet in Cheshire Oaks.
When I was a child I had a huge interest in trainers just like any other regular kid, although it wasn’t until my mid-teens where my interest shifted towards shoes and boots. Especially when I was working for Diesel and Allsaints when my fashion sense had changed for the better.
During my college years in the early 2000’s, I remember having a huge obsession with Timberland boots and being fascinated by the whole hip-hop culture. Who remembers the oversized baggy jeans, du-rags, crisp white tees, sports jerseys and fresh tight braids that majority of people were rocking back then?! Ah yeah, they were the days!! ☺
Okay, now back to the trainers before I get side-tracked again. So, the trainers that I purchased were my first ever pair of Adidas NMD trainers. I picked up a pair in Olive at my local Footlocker store and they’re Footlocker EU exclusives! For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Adidas NMD range, which I’m sure a lot of you are by now because they’re literately everywhere you go and plastered everywhere on social media.and I mean everywhere.
They’re classed as lifestyle shoes that incorporate Adidas’s renowned boost technology sole, which originates from the ultra boost running shoe. The NMD footwear range is treasured by thousands of sneakerheads worldwide and the cult just seems to grow stronger and stronger. The Internet and the social media have generated humongous hype over these sneakers, especially with some of the official Adidas colourways and not to mention celebrity endorsements and collaborations.
Okay so here they are.
The main feature that I like on this sneaker is the boost technology sole which is made up of thousands of specially formulated foam pellets called energy capsules, therefore making the shoe light and comfortable. The sole itself resembles a thick layer of polystyrene, and has a pointed rear on the shoe which gives it that urban street look. Furthermore, the white fluorescent sole adds a nice contrast to the main colour of the shoe whether it be neutral, vibrant or dark. This colour will go well with a pair of grey, navy or black denims.
Another great feature that I like about this shoe are the Lego looking blocks that are located on both sides of the shoes. The block at the rear is like a grid block, whilst the one on the front has Adidas subtly printed on it which adds a nice little touch to the shoe overall.
I also adore the little hoops that are attached to the back of the shoe which I think is a pretty cool feature, I mean not only does it look good but it also comes in handy if you ever wanted to carry them effortlessly with your finger tips lol.
I haven’t had the chance to wear these shoes out yet but I will be showcasing them soon in an upcoming outfit blog, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for it. I have only ever worn these sneakers in the house and I kid you not that these are the comfiest pair of shoes I have ever worn in my life! It literately feels like you’re walking on thin air. These are definitely my favourite trainers right now and I intend on continuing building my NMD collection!
What are your favourite trainers at the moment? What new releases are you most looking forward to?
