Cool Laces To Customize Your Kicks

Sure, laceless shoes are increasingly popping up in the men’s market, but a new crop of shoelace brands are now offering up cool ways to customize your shoes. From metallics to leathers, we’ve highlighted new styles that can transform your kicks.

Colored laces are a fun way to amp up a more classic shoe style (think suede dress shoes, though they would also work on sneakers). If you’re looking for a more polished way to personalize your laces, though, leather or waxed laces are a subtler update.

Aglit Italy is focusing on its offering of luxe laces, whether in colored furs or stitched denim. All the leathers are imported from Italy or Spain, and produced in the U.S.

To make your favorite shoes appropriate for evening, try swapping regular laces for one with a metallic shimmer. If you want the look for your sneakers, you can take inspiration from Saint Laurent’s “Surf” collection, which featured a variety of fun lacing (from metallic to multicolored).
