?? U.K. Shops ship direct to sg? Footlocker aw-lab etc don't from what I recall

Airfrov is a nonsense concept. Mainly lowballers resellers who wants to sell off. Definitely doesn't works for more limited sneakers. Don't even need forwarder for most UK stores.

JD Sports and Size usually have stock for flyknit racers and they ship direct to Singapore. End Clothing also ship, but usually no sizes for flyknit racers unless you camp when they announce restock.

I really hate this type of people, very selfishly wipe out the whole store and re-sell them online for higher price.

Well.. technically they are not doing anything illegal. The original retailers are definitely well-aware of what's happening but they do not see the need to do anything about it. Why would they, as these resellers just help push up the desirability of their shoes/brands. If they operated on a noble premise of ensuring there will be enough stock for everyone and anyone (willing to pay RRP), they wouldn't be that desirable for you to want to get a pair, would they?

It's a free market and the only way such behavior will stop is when there is simply no consumer demand to make $ out of it.

Looking to purchase NMD online - but I don't know my sizing. Any similar Addidas shoes that I can try on for size at the shops in sg to get a guage?

Thanks

It's quite true to size. If not you can size down 0.5 for a more snug fit. I wear US 8.5 in most shoes (flyknit racers, roshes, nmds, flyknit trainers, ZX700, Stan Smiths, lunars, etc)

Most funny thing is after a few months you'll start seeing some desperates trying to sell off at slightly lower pricing than original bcos nobody wanna buy from them

No way around this. 2-3 years ago still can....now they are very strict on this. Only way is to ask Ebay sellers to buy for you.
