Shoes are a great way to polish off an amazing outfit. After all, the wrong pair of shoes could easily ruin an otherwise fantastic look. Think about it: If you wear a sharp, tailored suit in that perfect color with a ratty pair of orange loafers with holes, you’re not gonna look so great. On the other hand, if you wear that suit with a pair of Yeezy Boost 750s, you are sure to turn heads as soon as you walk into that special event. Not only can you change the look of your shoes by switching out your shoelaces, but you can also try changing the way that you tie your shoes.Converse All Stars have a relatively simple construction that allows for a variety of creative shoe tying ideas.
The most common way to tie shoes is by using the traditional method of crisscrossing shoelaces. However, the straight across method works great and provides a crisp, clean aesthetic. To tie your shoes this way, tie your laces straight across the eyelets instead of using a crisscross pattern.
If you want to take your straight across lacing to the next level, try incorporating two different colored laces for each shoe. Basically, you tie two short laces of different colors together, and you want for one lace to be slightly longer than the other. Begin by pulling the part with the longest color through the eyelet closest to the toe and then across to its matching eyelet. Continue lacing across each row, alternating the colors.
If you want to try one of these alternate methods of lacing your Converse All Stars, you will need a variety of shoelaces. Lace Kings features several different colors offlat laces to choose from, as well asrope laces andoval laces. Shop our selection of colored shoelaces at Lace Kings today.
The best way to determine your shoe laces size is to measure the length of the shoelaces you are replacing and most closely match it with our size options. **This will give you the most accurate fit**
If you are unable to measure the old shoe laces you want to replace, refer to the shoe lace size chart below. Keep in mind, these are suggestions and can be slightly affected by your lacing preferences, if you have a quite large or very small shoe size, and the distance between eyelets.
The correct Lace Kings shoe lace length is generally determined by how many pairs of eyelets (or holes) your shoes have.
*SHORTER: If your shoe eyelets are positioned very close together across the tongue, you may want to choose your length from the shorter side of the above chart. The smaller option can also be a good choice for petite women's sneakers or children's sizes. Also, if you prefer to leave your shoes untied, the shorter size may be preferable.
*LONGER: Choose the longer option for most men's shoe sizes or if you prefer to have enough length at the end to double knot.
*Note: Choose your size according to how many eyelets you plan on using on your shoe to get the best fit if you do not plan on lacing them all the way up to the top pair of eyelets.
