The NMD Craze

I finally got my own pair of NMDs. I’ve been on a hunt since it got released last 2015. I wanted the first-ever NMD Primeknit but it’s just so hard to find one that is not overpriced. Luckily, I saw this pair in End. ClothingAdidas Originals NMD Wmns XR1 “Ice Purple/Midnight Grey”.

Unboxing:

I liked that End have their own box and I like how classy the packaging looks like. And they still included the original Adidas box. In which I find useful just in case I had to sell these (you know, maybe not the right size).

Details:

My first impression was that the actual colour is darker than what it looked like on their website. Not a problem though, I still love how the purples and greys blend together. And look at those knitted patterns, gorgeous!

What I also like about this is how subtle browns of the back strap and soles can bring the whole design together.

Lookbook:

And now, let’s try out these babies.

They may be not the comfiest pair of kicks but the design is dope. So having a pair or two would be a nice addition to sneakerheads out there.

For those interested, I got my snapback from Kore Limited. I came across this brand through JunCurryAhn, a YouTuber that I follow. Anyway, Kore have a lot of interesting designs and the quality of their merchandises are good. Mainly the designs are something related to Korea, you can check them out if you want.

Online shoe shopping

I ordered Vivi Captoe in mint (P850) from Satchi Store arrived today. But I got mine for only P799 since it was already on sale. Lucky me.

I am so in love with it. Who wouldn’t? Mint + gold, perfect combo! But buying online could be risky. Let me share some personal tips I consider first before clicking that checkout button:

  1. Check customer’s reviews & comments about the store/product. Sometimes, you can spot a bogus shop or if the product you want doesn’t live up to the photograph.
  2. Make sure to ask for the dimensions/sizes before purchasing. Sizes vary from one shop to another like dresses indicated in S/M/L. Shoe sizes sometimes come in smaller sizes than the usual so it is better to ASK.
  3. Find out what materials used in the item is it made of—cotton, chiffon, suede, silk, etc. And for shoes, some are made with pig’s lining, and I think some people are quite sensitive about this.
  4. For meet-ups, try to bring someone with you. Don’t go and meet a stranger in shady places.
  5. For deliveries, make sure to check the goods upon receipt. If the item is damaged or wrong item was sent to you, inform the seller immediately.
  6. Lastly, don’t be shy to ask. Ask, ask, ask. Get my point? Lol It is important that you are sure on what you are paying for.

Happy shopping! 🙂
