UPDATE: After the initially unassuming 'White/Core Black' NMD City sold out immediately and began fetching anything from $500-$1000 on eBay, we thought you might be interested in another look at its sequel. These new brooding images from adidas show the City Sock polished and ready for retail. These won't be easy to come by, but if you scour adidas Originals accounts on May 28 you might just be able to make them your own.
The NMD City Sock is a laceless interpretation of the internet-melting nomadic runner. With no laces and a snug Primeknit upper, it fits like its namesake. In less aesthetically-capable hands, there's a chance the City Sock may have ended up looking like a neoprene reef bootie. But adidas are experts of the deft touch – the premium black upper paired with a controlled hit of 'Lush Blue' shanks in the heel is a masterclass in restraint.
NMD fans will need to stay caffeinated and keep their trigger fingers on perma-twitch to secure a pair when the next round of the City Socks drop on May 28 at select adidas Originals retailers.
