As much as you might think that the unique pair of sneakers you’ve been eyeing will help you stand out from the crowd, the fact is that other sneakerheads are going to be wearing the same pairs this holiday season. In order to prevent your kicks from appearing ordinary, you’ll have to get creative — and remember that it’s not always about what you’re wearing, but how you’re wearing it.
One of the easiest ways to take your sneakers to the next level is with a pair of custom laces. These days, the marketplace for shoelaces is just as varied as sneakers themselves, and the options are endless. From luxury fur styles to sporty classics, we’ve rounded up the best choices around.
