How To Lace Your Sneakers / Swap Your Shoe Laces : ADIDAS NMD XR1 Size? X Henry Poole releasing on July 21st

Shoelaces / Laceswap Recommendations for the NMD XR1 Size? X Henry Poole

The ADIDAS NMD silhouettes has always been known to be trendy and stylish appeal, but classy? I don't think many would equate wearing NMDs to being classy but now all that might change. The NMD silhouette is about to mature into a "grown man" as it teams up with Size? and historic tailor Henry Poole on two new sneakers, the XR1 and R2. We will only be writing on the XR1 in this article.

The Size? X Henry Poole XR1 comes in navy, black and white and is inspired by a famous "Dinner Jacket" that was tailored in the 1800s. Winston Churchill was one of his famous customers apparently. The upper of the XR1 is totally in navy blue, while the cage has silk embedded onto it. Classy is an understatement. You could probably wear this to a business meeting, and still outclass the others in the room.

No information about the laces, but they don't look like the typical fabric laces that we see on most NMDs. These look like waxed flat laces as it has a glossy sheen to it. Click below for some waxed flat laces!
