The Nike Air Force 1 is hands-down one of the most customizable shoes of all time thanks to its simple silhouette and color scheme -- it's the perfect blank canvas for a custom design.
If you want to take your custom Air Forces to another level, swapping out the laces with a fresh pair of replacement laces that match your design is a great way to do so.
