5. Box Boost

Adidas NMD Runner PK's will have the word Boost varnished onto the side of the retail box. The word is large enough to run over two sides. This is also an opportunity to have a close look at the Adidas logo and Trefoil logo printed onto the box, make sure the print quality is high and check that the typeface used is correct.

7. Wrapping

Inside the retail box is paper wrapping to protect the shoes. The paper will have the Adidas logo as well as the Trefoil logo screen-printed onto the paper, check the quality of the printing making sure the edges of the logos are sharp and straight. Make sure the logos are all printed at the same density.

18. Eyelets

The lace eyelets are a rubber panel that is joined onto the upper. Make sure the eyelet holes are cleanly cut. Check that the tab joining the upper and eyelet panel has a neat stitch line that forms a rectangle. Make sure this stitch line joining the rubber tab to the upper is tight, neat and follows the edge of the join perfectly.
