The Cactus Jack 1s have one of the most unique Jordan 1 colorways to date.

To make his Cactus Jack 1s even more unique, artist @astrotorfcustoms painted his own custom blue and white color scheme.

This colorway is tied together with a pair of black luxury leather laces. 63" laces are the perfect length for Jordan 1s like these.

It can be tough to match laces with unique colorways, but you don't have to stick to black or white.

Custom artist @kattycustoms topped off her own custom orange and green Prestos with a pair of orange multi-color rope laces.

Last up are these custom off-white Jordan 1s. Featuring a black, white, and red colorway with orange accents, this pair of customs has one of the cleanest color schemes you'll probably ever see.

If you want to create a pair of customs like these, you'll need a pair of black off-white laces to top things off.
