4 Mins read

Several years ago, a Taiwanese news outlet released a video displaying a horde of consumers rushing into a plaza. It was later revealed that this swarm of consumers flocked toward getting their hands on the newly released Adidas NMDs. While other releases tend to show a calmer side to the peaceful nation, this was apparently not the case with the adidas NMD.

Due to its lightweight, breathable nature and beautiful design, the adidas NMD is one of the most popular silhouettes to get your hands on in Taiwan. With a country full of beautiful nature, hiking trails, and a humid climate, the NMD is a perfect shoe for every Taiwanese sneakerhead. As such, we take a look at some of the must-have NMDs on our platform.
