There's nothing wrong with rocking a pair of stock laces, but if you want to customize your sneakers to make them stand out, finding the right lace swap is the key.
To show you how big of a difference such a small change can make, we put together this short list of clean lace swaps.
Hopefully, these swaps will give you some good ideas on how to upgrade your own kicks. Check them out below.
A new pair of laces is the perfect way to top off a fresh pair of customs.
These custom Off-White x Air Jordan "RAGING BULL" 1s, created by @chefhuyle, feature an all-red and white colorway, Off-White branding, and are tied together with a pair of white Off-White style laces.
If you want to grab a pair for your 1s, we suggest getting the size 63" laces.
The "banned" Jordan 1s don't leave much room for improvement -- the Varisty Red and black colorway is an all-time classic. Still, the right laces can always take things to another level.
Some of the best lace swaps are the most simple.
Instead of swapping out the stock laces on these Ultra Boosts for a pair of contrasting laces, we opted for a pair of navy blue rope laces to complete the colorway.
We recommend size 41" laces for Ultra Boosts.
Small accents can change the look of a shoe completely.
Grab a pair of gold Yeezy-style aglets for yourself to customize your 350s.
Lastly, if you want to swap out your laces for something that sticks out a little bit more, a pair of multicolor laces might be the answer you're looking for.
