Fit & Sizing
The Nice Kicks x Adidas NMD is available in men's sizing only. Sizes range from 5.5 to 13. The sneakers are offered in limited quantities and sold out in most online retailers, so potential buyers might find it hard to find their exact size.
Nice Kicks x Adidas NMD Style
Nice Kick's On-Foot Look shots reveal that the Nice Kicks x Adidas NMD looks fantastic with a variety of outfits. It matches the casual T-shirt and jeans as well as cream-colored pants and hoodies. The pair is also great with an all-black getup.
Since it features a sock-like upper, the reviewers recommended buyers to get a half size down because a tight fit looks better.
On its own, the NMD silhouette is already a very prime aspect of the shoe that is hard not to recognize. The NMD is considered by sneaker experts as the best shoe during the past year, hence its ubiquity. In this version, Nice Kick’s artistic influence is clearly represented by the red and black colors that give the shoe a very unique and charismatic look.
