Adidas NMD_ Is Nomadic

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, […]

Good Bye Easy Mint

(Not) so easy come, but easy goes goes this Easy Mint colorway of the Adidas Ultraboost. Adidas’ inconsistent sizing strikes again where this women’s size 7 was bigger than a women’s size 7. Oh well. I still love the color, but if it don’t fit right, there’s not much choice…

Kicks Analysis 2017 #8: The Champ

Too much Jordan. Has to be, but in any case, North Carolina barely outlasted Gonzaga in the Finals of 2017 Men’s NCAA basketball season. It was tight until the end before that 9-2 burst by the Tarheels did in the Bulldogs. Of course, I was rooting for the underdog since the Gonzaga basketball program has […]

Kicks Analysis 2017 #7: The Finals

It’s over… from a kicks point of view anyways. Nike has another championship locked down with North Carolina and Gonzaga playing in the finals. Starting out, Nike had a 59% chance for one of its teams to win it all. Under Armour and Adidas were close to each other at 19% and 22% respectively. For […]

The odds, the percentages – forget them. It’s March Madness, baby! All shoe brands are still in it with Nike having 75% of the Elite 8. UA and Adidas each have one team repping their brand. Seed: Team, Shoe 11: Xavier, Nike 1: Gonzaga, Nike 3: Oregon, Nike 1: Kansas, Adidas 7: South Carolina, Under […]

Kicks Analysis 2017 #4: Shoes of Champions

I vowed that if my bracket won this year’s tournament then I would buy shoes from the popular Adidas basketball lineup. There are no losers in the current lineup of Crazy Explosives (low), Harden Vol. 1, and the Dame 3. Currently, Adidas adorns the remaining Kansas and UCLA squads. Lonzo balls in the Hardens. Oddly […]

Kicks Analysis 2017 #1: Shoe Sponsorship

The first kicks analysis of every Big Dance is the overall makeup of the dancing shoes, specifically who makes’em. My first kicks examination failed for several teams – North Dakota, Middle Tennessee, Dayton, NC Central, Vermont, Iona, and the play-in matchups. Obviously, I’ll have to update my charts after the first round when I get […]
