If you were a fan of the recently released adidas NMD R1 but didn’t love the nubby plastic lacing system, there’s an alternative. Created by the seasoned hands of talented sneaker customizer Randy the Cobbler, this new system is elegant and will probably provide far better lockdown — because if you’ve worn any Boost-equipped sneakers you know that they can be unstable at times.
Randy the Cobbler has tweaked the NMD R1’s lacing system in the past, by “uncaging” it, but this new setup is the next level. This embedded cord system is simple, functional, aesthetically pleasing, and gives the R1 silhouette a totally new look. Customizers are out here making the sneakers we really want — appreciate their work and allow it to inspire you to create your own thing!
