Replacement Shoe Laces / Lace Swap Recommendations

With the NMD R1 OG pending re-release (is that even a word?), I bet everyone in the world is busy googling "NMD R1 OG Raffles" furiously and entering every single raffles (genuine or fake) in hoping to get their hands on the most popular NMD  colorway ever, me included.

However, you need to accept the reality that only a few of us will be lucky enough to get the genuine goods, and some of you desperate hypebeasts will probably be getting it on the resell market for 5 times the price, notwithstanding the risk of purchasing a Grade A replica.

What pair of laces would I recommend for this? Black. This is the OG. The one and only. Don't ruin it by lacing some weird colored laces. Stick to black. However, ADIDAS NMD laces are notorious for being stupidly long. Click below for a pair of black flat laces in 80cm, which is my recommended length for NMDs.
