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

Shoe Laces / Laceswap Recommendations

99% of readers of this blog post right now would have probably missed out on the Ultra Rare ADIDAS Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Zebra. But don't worry, ADIDAS will be releasing the NMD XR1 Zebra in April, maybe to soothe the hearts of the broken.

We see the long rectangular stripes, commonly found on the NMD R2, on this iteration of the XR1. The upper is made of Primeknit material, and lined with black stripes to complete the "Zebra" look. On the heel tab, you see hints of red (not sure why?) to finish it off. The pair comes with a set of solid flat white shoe laces and if ADIDAS has yet to improve on the lace length, these are probably way too long for a pair of shoes with 3 pairs of eyelets. If you're looking for shorter laces for NMDs, we got you covered.

As far as NMD goes, these will probably sell out within the day too. 

For the laces, if you want to retain the overall look, you can simply replace the current laces with shorter NMD laces. If not, check out our Black/White Rope Laces and also our Black/White Flat Laces.
