Some of them definitely went under the radar!

When it comes to being a big fan of adidas, Mervin Kei is one personality you should check out. As a DJ and the founder of adidas Talk Philippines, Mervin is your go-to person when it comes to anything about the Three Stripes. Be it general releases or hype collabs, Mervin sure knows how to take photos of his collection and create a sleek Instagram feed for all of your #feedgoals.

Do you still remember the crazy-looking Tubular Doom? Maybe adidas should bring back these bad boys:


The NMD CS2 is one of the more underrated models under the NMD line. Thankfully, KITH and Naked gave a great makeover to this sock-like sneaker:
