    Is it PrimeKnit like the upcoming re-stock found here? http://www.adidas.com/us/nmd_r1-primeknit-shoes/BY1887.html

    I was lucky enough to get the OG One via adidas.com/us, I was automatically blocked when they saw I used PH IP address (quickly rectified by VPN Unlimited).

    The website randomizes who could get in and I got in during the final 5-10 minutes before they ran out of stock. Will have them next week. It'll be my first NMD and I'm so excited!

    PS Use VPN + Gcash Amex because Adidas US requires US CC and I.P. (for special releases). I got my UB 3.0 using PH citibank card before, now they just decline it.

    Shown in my pic is the Mesh version. I am actually waiting for the PrimeKnit version to be available in our local footlocker store, that is why my caption is to be or not to be:LOL: else, if it will not arrive, I will settle with the mesh.

    I don't remember seeing any option for courier service. I chose express delivery as it showed the same price (£14.99) as standard delivery.

    It is on display in a Footlocker store here in Muscat, Oman. 65 Omani Riyals, that is equivalent to around 8,300 Pesos.

    I have that, the triple white NMD, but the laces on mine are the flecked ones. Got it at SA in UPTC.

    Hi. Planning on getting this model for my first NMD. Asking the group if this model fits true to size or should i order 0.5 size up or down? Thanks!

    ^My experience with NMDs...
    For mesh, true to size.
    For PK, minus half size.

    For me if your 9 1/2 for Nike, your NMD R1 should be 10. Based on my preference. 9 1/2 fits but its really snug.

    Should be half size down for UB or NMDs.

    I went to Tokyo last month, hoping to buy the ACRONYM X Nike Air Presto and some ACG stuff. A sneaker store clerk was kind enough to tell me to head to NikeLab MA5 and sure enough the shop was like a candy store for me.... The store was filled with NikeLab and ACG stuff. Unfortunately, they only have the shoes in XXS and XXL.

    Luckily, I was able to get a couple of Nike Air Presto Mid Utility at SportsLab.

    Here's a water repellant Nike Air Presto Mid Utility,
    Grove Green/Khaki/Black.
