Could we possibly see mid-top versions of the adidas NMD in the near future? If so, don’t be surprised if it looks like the sample you see above. Let’s take a closer look at the adidas NMD Mid Suede Sample.
The mid-top NMD sample opts to ditch the Primeknit/mesh upper in favor of a premium suede construction placed all over the chukka-style upper. Giving the shoe a more sleek and premium look is that fact that it comes with a seamless construction. Below you will still find the Boost midsole coming in an all-white aesthetic to create some nice contrast and overall balance. German branding, which translates to “3 Stripes World Market”, is placed on the heel tab. The shoe you see above is a rarity owned by Index PDX which can be yours to own for a cool $1,200. Who knows, maybe if there’s enough hype behind the shoe we could see something similar release somewhere down the line.

One of the reason I like the NMD is because of it’s Primeknit/mesh consturction, which helps make the shoe a comfortable option. Removing that aspect of the shoe makes it less appealing to me. If they were to drop something similar to these, I would no be picking up.
