Saturday February 20th, the day after Yeezy Friday , which caused various websites to shut down for a while. On this Saturday sneakerheads tried to get a pair of Adidas NMD R1 Yellow Camo or Nice Kicks Red. We stayed up until Midnight when both pairs dropped and as always we manage to get them into the basket but then, surprise: the website dropped. It was pointless at this moment to wait anymore for Adidas NMD R1 Yellow Camo so we went to sleep.
In the morning they dropped on other websites but again same issues the website domain hosting of those special sneaker retailers crashed and only a few lucky sneakerheads were successful with their purchase.
We than decided to take another approach, the one that opened between 10am-12pm, and so we went to certain retailers that were selling the sneakers. The first one was Baskets Amsterdam which within 15 min sold out all their stock of Adidas NMD_R1 Yellow Camo. The next best thing is to go to Concrete Amsterdam which opened at 12pm (actually 12:20pm because of a small delay). Outside 10-15 sneaker enthusiasts were making lists on their phone who can buy them first so things will go fair once the store open.
At 12:34pm the sneakers were in our hand and after 10 more minutes they were also completely sold out.
Now the shoe: The shoe is simple and just perfect. It is easy to fit in and it’s a very light shoe to wear. The color of the shoe it’s meant for the spring/summer which is just around the corner.
Did you manage to buy a pair if so tell us how? If not don’t worry there are several more Adidas NMD R1 models to be launched in 2016, which you can find here.
