How To Lace Your Sneakers / Swap Your Shoe Laces : ADIDAS NMD R2 2TONE White / Core Red

Shoelaces / Lace Swap Recommendations

This has got to be the best R2 colorway I have seen so far. Not a big fan of the R2 design, but this colorway might just be able to change my mind. A combination of red and white is always a sure win, considering Slickieslaces's logo is a blend of red and white :)

The upper consists of a white upper primeknit with white motif stripes throughout. Red accents and red soles are spread throughout the shoe, offering a great contrast. A full BOOST midsole adorns the shoe with that oversized red insert completing the look. Will I cop? Yes, definitely will provided the re-sellers don't get their hands on these first.

The R2 has 5 rows of eyelets, which means it requires a longer length for a knot. However, you are still able to use 90CM laces for these and still able to tie a small knot with no excess lace.

I will definitely switch out the white laces on these with red ones.
