How To Lace Your Sneakers / Swap Your Shoe Laces : ADIDAS NMD XR1 Core Black

Shoelaces / Laceswap Recommendations for NMD XR1 Core Black

What's next for NMD silhouette? ADIDAS has been pretty quiet the past few weeks with new releases. Normally, new colors are churned out every week non-stop. I think that they have finally realised that no matter how popular a silhouette is, too much is not good for hype.

This colorway got me thinking "Why haven't they come up with these in the first place?". Black and White should be a basic colorway that should be one of the first OG releases. Upper is made of mesh and it has a leather cage overlay instead of the TPU cage. I have been favoring mesh over Primeknit the past few months. I felt that the mesh NMDs fit Slickieslaces's laces more than the Primeknits.
