Best Air Max Lace Swaps

Best Air Max Lace Swaps

September 01, 2019

The Nike Air Max is a staple in every sneakerhead's closet. With a bunch of new colorways set to drop later this year and early next year, now is a perfect time to go over some of the best Air Max lace swaps you can use to make your pair stand out.

Sometimes, the best lace swaps are the ones that blend in, not the ones that stand out.

@emkicks swapped out the laces on this pair of Air Maxes for some Oxford Tan rope laces, which blend in with the desert storm colorway perfectly.

Try this lace swap on the Air Max 720 OBJ "Desert Ore" dropping next month.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to pick up this colorway for yourself. These Air Maxes, featuring a red and neon green color scheme, were custom designed by  @fawlcustoms.

To top things off, this artist swapped out the stock laces for a pair of Volt shoe laces.

Virgil Abloh might've created one of the most iconic aesthetics of all time with Off-White. If you like Off-White as much as we do, we got you covered with our Off-White-style laces. 

Custom artist @jarcustoms designed these custom black and white Off-White Air Maxes and used our neon orange and neon green Off-White-style laces to tie the colorway together.

It doesn't get much better than a classic red and white color scheme.  @trotttheworld swapped out the stock laces on his red and white Air Maxes with our red reflective rope laces.

You can try these laces out on the Nike Air Max 90 "Infrared," which is dropping in 2020 in honor of the 30th anniversary of the classic Air Max 90 silhouette.

Travis Scott and Jordan already released a pair of Cactus Jack 1s, but if you want a pair of Air Maxes with the same colorway, you'll have to make your own.

That's what artist @jwdanklefs did with these custom Cactus Jack Air Max 1s. To complete the customs, this artist swapped out the stock laces with a pair of our pink flat laces.
