Adidas NMD Roundup

Adidas NMD Roundup

September 26, 2018

Since its launch, the Adidas NMD, alongside the UltraBoost, has become one of the most popular running shoes in streetwear culture. From its incredible silhouette to the boost midsole that we all love, there's a lot to like about the NMD. One of the best things about this shoe, though, is its versatility when it comes to swapping laces, so let's take a look at some of our favorite lace swaps for some inspiration.

First up is @solekicks26 with this pair of Primeknit Japan Triple Black NMDs. Our black Katakana laces are a perfect upgrade over the stock black laces on these NMDs as they fit perfectly with the all black color scheme and Japanese branding found on this shoe.

The NMD_R1 Gum Pack in white is one the simplest and cleanest colorways to come out yet. Swapping the stock flat laces for our white rope laces can change up the look without messing up the all-white color scheme. We recommend 30-inch laces for the NMD_R1.

@solekicks26 comes through again with a fresh lace swap on these mint NMDs. Our Mint 3M Reflective Rope Laces match perfectly with this color scheme and are a great way to get away from the basic stock laces.

Pharrell has worked with Adidas to create a number of unique styles and colorways to add to the NMD line. These NMD Human Races, in particular, are a perfect candidate for our Black/White Multi-Color Rope Laces.

Lastly, we have @prtn11 with another pair of all-white NMDs. While the colorway is nothing new, the silhouette on these uncaged NMDs is completely different from the standard R1s. Swap out the stock laces with our white 3M Reflective Rope Laces for a more unique look.
