A New Look for NMD Laces

Date: October 09 2017

By: Rob Marfell


Sneaker leakers have squirrelled another NMD sample out of Herzo and shared it with the world. Sporting more than a new colourway or colab quirk, this nomad signals a complete design overhaul.

Rather than using external eyelets to secure the forefoot, these NMDs tuck the lace system under a flap adhered to the upper with Velcro. A toggle pops through the flap to tighten the fit, and fusing tape on the lateral sides gives the sneaker a technical look. 

The design doesn’t seem perfected yet but this sample’s existence shows adidas are paying attention to sneakerheads tucking away their laces in all their on-foot Insta shots. 

Stick with SF for updates.
