adidas ultra boost st ray red

Shoe Laces / Laceswap Recommendations

If you compare the original Ultra Boost to the ST version, you will notice that the ST silhouette does not get enough attention, compared to its predecessor. With this new blazing hot colorway, ADIDAS is prays that it gets the attention it deserves.  

I have a theory on how the number of pairs of eyelets affects ADIDAS's sneaker popularity. Look at the NMDs and Ultra Boosts, both of them have 4 pairs of eyelets and below. The Ultra Boost STs, which has 5 pairs, ain't that popular. Even the Yeezys only have 4 pairs. Food for thought eh? Maybe I am just being random :P
