Some colorways are too good to paint over, but a lace swap can still take them to a new level.

The Jordan 1 "Light Smoke Grey" is one of the cleanest colorways in recent memory, and swapping out the stock black laces for a pair of grey or yellow flat laces is the perfect way to upgrade the color scheme.
