While I don’t own any a pair of Adidas, it’s amazing to me how Adidas has become a brand to take a second look at. Sure, we had RUN DMC rocking Adidas and making songs about Adidas back in the 80’s. NOW, we have Super Stars Like Kayne West and Karlie Kloss being the faces of Adidas. Kayne Wests’ Yeezys sell out for $200 and then resellers sell them from $950 to $1200. Which I have seen on ebay with my own eyes. SMH!! And it’s not even like we see Kayne play a professional sport. Obviously Adidas KNEW he would have influence to move those Yeezys.
What about the Adidas NMD’s? Hot shoe. They retail for $170 and I have seen the resellers with those on ebay for $200. Not a terrible mark up price, but still.
I admire Adidas for revamping their shoe wear and promoting their brand. I would really like to get my hands on some black NMD’s. One day I will score these babies.
