Perhaps a pair of star-spangled kicks might not be in your closet.
But footwear accessories for the Fourth of July can add an equally loud — or subtle — touch of American pride that can easily be integrated into your wardrobe after Independence Day, including other holidays such as Veteran’s Day, Memorial Day and during the upcoming summer Olympics.
Below, here is a roundup of festive options that will enhance your Fourth of July ensemble.
While the nighttime sky will be glowing with colors, so can your shoes. 4id’s light-up products can provide a unique and safe way to stand out in the dark. The PowerLacez Glow Shoe Laces feature built-in LED lights with adjustable settings, available in blue and white for $14.95. To complete a unified American flag palette, utilize 4id’s PowerSpurz in a vibrant red LED color to light up the back of the sneakers. The product, intended to help runners remain visible at night to motorists, wraps around the heel and flashes continuous light, available for $19.95 (also in green, orange, purple and blue).
Replace your shoelaces with a hue in red, white and blue with Hickies, a response lacing system made from a memory-fit elastomer that supports comfort and stability around the feet. The substitute for traditional laces helps support comfort and stability. The brand offers a discount of 10 percent off four or more orders, retailing for $13.49 (14 unites each) online.
Top Shop’s side-by-side American flag socks are the perfect match to a pair of crisp white sneakers. The cotton-blend socks feature a partial flag motif on one leg, and the completed half on the other. Featuring a ribbed cuff and a glittery finish, the socks retail for $4 on the brand’s website.
BootRoxx is a slip-on cover that transforms a pair of boots into an entirely new look. The label’s Patriot style is designed like an American flag, featuring red and clear rhinestones on a navy blue fabric. The accessory utilizes an elastic heel strap under the sole for a secure fit, retailing for $50.
