Another Look at adidas' NMD_TS1 and Its Weird Toggle Flap

Date: February 20 2018

OK, whoever decided the NMD needed a ‘flap’ update should be sent back to adidas' mailroom. The once sleek and streamlined NMD looks awkward and uncomfortable with its new addition, like when you were a teenager wearing something ill-fittingly goofy at your mum’s insistence.

The NMD_TS1’s velcro-attached forefoot flap conceals a toggle lacing system, while heat-welded taping on the lateral sides improves the sneaker's strength and stability. Why did the toggle need its little cocoon? We’re not sure. But if you’re digging the look, we’re pretty certain a release is imminent – that’s usually the way things work with on-the-money sneakerprophet’s leaks.
