It was like love at first sight as soon as I saw these adidas Originals "raw pink" NMDs! They are the perfect shade of pink and I instantly knew I HAD to have them. The only problem was, how was I going to get my hands on a pair?!
If you've ever tried to get NMDs, you know how hard it is to cop ANY colorway. Everyone goes crazy for NMDs so the chances of being able to buy a pair at retail on release day, are very slim. Sure, you can go on eBay or reseller apps like Grailed and GoatAPP, but get ready to spend well over retail.
When these dropped on June 10th, I was up at 6 a.m. on the six02 website, ready to snag my pair. Unfortunately, they did not drop them online and instead in-store. I was devastated because by the time I tried other sites, everyone was sold out.
I went on Instagram and posted a picture of my 2 out of 3 of my NMDs and wrote in the caption how I missed out on them and was not able to get them.
As soon as the post went live, I started getting comments, direct messages, and text messages of people (whom I know and people I do not know), trying to help me get a pair. The power of social media is truly amazing! My friend Sylvia was able to help me out and now these are my 4th pair of NMDs in my collection and I am obsessed with them!
Really BIG thank you to everyone who reached out and tried to help me get my pair. I appreciate all of you!! <3
Happy Feet, Happy Me! :)
