UPDATE: The drop date for the reissue of these OG NMD_R1s is looming – and just as everyone is clamouring to try and secure a pair, Livestock have come through with an alternative option. The retailer’s Roncesvalles, Spadina and Chinatown Vancouver stores are holding in-store raffles that will be drawn on January 13. Head along to either location to enter, or keep it locked to adidas online where you’ll be able to buy the shoes on January 14.
UPDATE: Good news! The adidas NMD_R1 OG Retro, the nomad that started it all, has an official release date – and it’s soon. The Three Stripes have taken to Twitter to announce that the OG colourway will drop on January 14. Snare a pair at adidas online and select retailers worldwide.
The inaugural release in the NMD range – the OG NMD_R1 that birthed a global sensation – is getting rereleased and we can say for sure it’s going to be a sell-out event. What we can’t say for sure is when exactly this OG retro is going to drop. Though it was widely reported as a December 15 release, exact details on this NMD_R1 are hard to nail down. We’re mere days away from drop day, and there’s still no word of confirmation from adidas Originals. What we have got however, is a countdown timer that has appeared on the webstore of a German retailer. Inflammable have got a clock whittling down the seconds to January 13th and, while the Three Stripes haven’t piped up yet, you’d be wise to mark the date and keep coin on hand just in case.
