Shoelaces-Express Yourself

Being a sneakerhead is all about self-expression. 

Some pair their kicks with the freshest (out)fits.

Some intentionally lace their kicks loosely for a nonchalant appearance. 

Some meticulously lace their kicks so each shoe lace lies precisely flat. 

Some sneakerheads take their sneaker expression to the next level; intentionally pairing non-standard colourway laces to fully accentuate their kicks.  

Swapping non-standard colourway laces is like applying lipstick.  Sometimes it can enhance one’s sneaker game. Other times, the wrong colour lace swap can ruin the prettiest of silhouettes.  

The following snaps are of my latest non-standard colourway lace pairings. 

Shout out to Ward for the two sets of AJ Union 1 laces.

      The first time I saw the two tone shoelace was on a pair of Union 1 Air Jordans.

      My buddy Ward gave me two pairs of his Union 1 laces that he wasn’t using. Generous guy.

      Maybe some future tie dye action is in order.
