Thick laces on timeless sneakers are coming back.
For those who got tired of weekly collab drops and finding sold-out kicks, a simple solution to have unique sneakers reappears: change the shoelaces.
Thick laces are nothing new for those who follow the '90s skateboarding style, but everything can be reinvented, especially when the sneaker market gets so repetitive.
This mode has gained so many followers that some brands have specialized in thick laces, such as Customs By J1. On their Instagram, you can see how they style Nike Dunks, Vans, and other well-known leather silhouettes. Even Lanvin took this street style benchmark to the FW '21.
It’s not only about style. Every shoelace and every tie has a purpose. How many times have yours untied in the middle of a run? And there's a solution to that, you can put the shoelace inside the tongue, ensuring more comfort and less contact with the foot.
For sports or to compose the drip, customization is the new key.
A quiet Vans and its instant sell-out, here.
