Try your best not to squirm as you watch these video clips of Australian pro skateboarder Al Boglio shredding in one of Adidas’ most-sought-after shoes.
The clips were uploaded by Boglio to Instagram over a four-week period and show the skateboarder in action while wearing the original Adidas NMD in “Core Black/Lush Red.”
This particular colorway wasn’t only the first Adidas NMD that was released; it’s also one of the most valuable. Sneaker boutique Stadium Goods currently has these NMDs in stock priced from $1,000 to $1,500 — and that’s if your size is even available.
In December, Adidas struck gold with the NMD lifestyle sneaker. Serving as a showcase for two of the brand’s most cutting-edge technologies in Boost and Primeknit, the NMD was also firmly rooted in Adidas’ history with references to heritage models such as the Boston Super, Micro Pacer and Rising Star. Less than a year later, the NMD has become one of Adidas’ most successful sneakers, consistently selling out despite a flood of colorways and styles.
If you weren’t able to get your hands on the original Adidas NMD in 2015, it’s rumored that this “Core Black/Lush Red” Primeknit colorway will be rereleased in December. However, we’re still awaiting official confirmation from Adidas.
