UPCOMING ADIDAS POD Cushion System - NMD Killer or nah?

What do you think of the ADIDAS P.O.D cushioning system?

When the NMD silhouette first released, there were lines and lines waiting to cop and demand was huge.

But as demand grew, ADIDAS was pressured to keep releasing new colors and in even more quantities, which may have contributed to slow decline in hype with each and every new release. Many NMDs are still sitting in stores, with full run sizes.

In 2018, ADIDAS will try to bring hype up with a brand new silhouette, rumored to be an NMD killer.

Based on the picture, it seems to be a mixture of EQT, INIKI and NMD combined all into 1 single pair of shoes. And unlike past BOOST silhouettes, the POD will only feature half a boost at the heel.

The chunky look of the midsole reminds me of the Wave Runners or BALENCIAGA's Triple S runners.

Opinions of the POD shoes are divided. I for one will reserve my opinion for later when the shoe has released. I hate the NMD when it first released. but now I have more than 10 pairs in my collection.
