European sneakerheads and Three Stripes fans are in for a treat later this week as Foot Locker EU took to Instagram earlier today to tease a brand new adidas exclusive: a premium “Master Craft” rendition of the beloved NMD. The “Master Craft” take on the Boost-cushioned low-top goes the luxury route, adding leather to the design’s construction while opting for a classy grey upper. That grey hue extends to the shoe’s midsole plugs while a black pull tab and matching rubber outsole join the brown leather heel tab and shank. -HB
Most of adidas’s exclusive renditions of the NMD have been resigned to giants across the pond like JD Sports and Foot Locker Europe, but now an American spot is getting in on the action as VILLA has unveiled its own exclusive take on the beloved Three Stripes silhouette. The upcoming release is one of the more colorful NMDs out there and couples a royal blue upper with black accents and hits of yellow and red to the likes of the heel pull tab and midsole plugs. As per usual, the design’s Boost midsole comes in stark white. These are set to hit VILLA locations October 15th. -HB
