How To Lace Your Sneakers / Swap Your Shoe Laces : ADIDAS NMD XR1 Navy Blue

Shoe Laces / Laceswap Recommendations

One of the 19 NMD colorways that was released on the 6th April 2017, the Navy XR1 is one of the more muted colorways that is available. Upper primeknit patter consists of patches of horizontal lines. No color accents, as it is all Navy.

Definitely, the 6th of April wasn't as successful as previous NMD releases. We see reports of numerous NMD colorways sitting on shelves and not selling out. Not just that, if you prowl through the Facebook comments, you will also notice that people are having a feeling that the NMD is just not that great anymore. Remember the NIKE Roshes? If ADIDAS is not careful, the NMD silhouette might just fade into oblivion. 

The XR1 has 3 pairs of eyelets, and as such the recommended length for these is 80CM. Click below for our recommended pair of laces!
