adidas NMD Embedded Cord Lacing System (Custom)
NMD has proven itself to be one of the most versatile shoe platforms of 2016. Originally thought to be just a singular silhouette – the NMD_R1 – NMD continues to expand with a never-ending stream of new variations of the sock-and-Boost aesthetic. While not an official release, this custom by Randy the Cobbler manages to tweak the formula once again with an embedded cord lacing system. Three sets of looped cord laces wrap around the upper, producing subtle Three Stripes branding in the process. Randy states that this change is not only easy on the eyes, but produces a more secure fit overall.
Fingers crossed adidas take a few notes from this custom for the future, but for now, you'll need to get creative at home if you want to replicate this unique lacing system.
