Luxury Leather Laces and logos go hand in hand, making them the obvious choice for these Louis Vuitton logo covered Air Force 1 customs by @russellpayton_. To keep the focus on the lavender and lilac color palette, White Luxury Leather Laces are a great choice. The white matches the soles, while not distracting from the overall design.

Whenever you think of Lakers you think of the classic yellow and purple. And whenever you think of Lakers you think of Kobe Bryant. This custom pair of sneakers by @mcvsso pay tribute to Kobe and the Mamba Mentality in that timeless yellow and purple. For the lace swap @mcvsso choose the Grey/Black Rope Laces⁠ to pick up on the black details.
