2019 Lace Swap Inspiration

2019 Lace Swap Inspiration

January 17, 2019

Stock laces can be a little boring. Sometimes plain white laces get old. A good lace swap is one of the easiest ways that you can take your stock or customs kicks to the next level. Check out some of these custom lace swaps to see how much of a difference such a small change can make.

Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard

The Shattered Backboards is one of the cleanest Jordan 1 colorways to be released. Swapping out the stock black laces for black wax laces with gold tips transforms these shoes into something even more unique than they already were. If you want to make this swap, we recommend size 63" laces.

Katakana Laces on White Boosts

Boosts are easily one of the most popular shoes of the last couple of years. So, if you want yours to stand out, you're going to need to make a few changes. This pair simply swaps the stock laces for a pair of white Katakana laces with neo chrome aglets.

Black, Red, and Gold Forces

Custom artist @wavykickfitz completely transformed these Forces with a clean red and black gradient colorway and gold swoosh. To top things off, this artist used our flat gold luxury leather laces to complete the color scheme and the results are incredible.

Off-White 1s Lace Swap

Off-White's collab with Nike resulted in some incredible Jordan 1 colorways. For this colorway, @Native_kicks chose to swap out the stock laces in favor of a pair of pink rope laces. These bold laces make this pair of Off-White 1s stand out even more.

All Black Boosts

Sometimes, it's best just to keep things simple. These boosts are using a pair of our grey/black multi-color flat laces in place of the stock laces to create a monochromatic colorway. If you want to swap out the stock laces on your boosts for a pair of our flat laces, we recommend size 41".
