I’m guessing that the NMD line for Adidas is a shortform of “nomadic.” Because after getting this pair of NMD_R1, they’re already on the move, headed back to Adidas.
That glitch colorway is fun but subtle. It’s that PrimeKnit upper that is of issue. Because it’s a single piece construction without a separate shoe tongue, there’s just not a whole lot you can do to adjust fit. The laces essentially just cinch up the unstructured woven “sack” that is the shoe upper.
The NMD looks distinctive and is popular, but its fit is definitely not for everyone.
