How To Lace Your Sneakers / Swap Your Shoe Laces : ADIDAS NMD R2 2TONAL PACK BLACK/RED

Shoe Laces / Laceswap Recommendations

More than 10 NMDs releasing on 6th April but only 2 have caught my eye. The 2TONAL pack has got to be the nicest looking of the lot, and I have already written a piece on the White/Red NMD R2.

Previously, I thought the 2TONAL pack was made of mesh instead of Primeknit  but based on new information, it is confirmed that is indeed made of Primeknit, which will definitely bump up its value as PK NMDs are more well-sought than their mesh brethren.

Will I cop these? Probably not as I already purchased the White/Red NMD R2s and I don't want to survive the next few weeks on bread and butter. Nevertheless, you can get your pair at size.co.uk and as of now, they still have a full size run.

For shoelaces, these are NMDs with 5 pairs of eyelets and as such, the recommended length would be 100CM. However, 90CM laces might still work though the size of the bow knot will be very small.
