How To Lace Your Sneakers / Swap Your Shoe Laces : ADIDAS NMD R1 Japan Boost

Shoe Laces / Laceswap Recommendations

While doing some research on this pair to get a background of its design, the comments section rather than the article itself gleaned more information. A majority of the comments seems to think that this is pair of shit. Don't confuse this with the pair of "Japan Boost" that was released in Feb 2016, that pair had the Jap letterings on the front brick and had a blacked out Boost midsole.

The shoe laces though, needs a change. Slickieslaces have recently introduced a brand new set of custom laces that will fit this pair of kicks perfectly. Dubbed the 3STRIPES, the flat laces comes in 3 colors (black, white and grey) and in 2 lengths (80CM and 90CM). These laces have the 3STRIPES Jap Letterings emblazoned all over them and is perfect for anyone who is looking for a unique pair of laces for their Ultra Boost or NMDs.
