Sometimes the sneaker companies get it wrong. No, really, they do. Even when they offer multiple lace options—sometimes packaging two or even three pairs at a time—they don't necessarily provide the option you want or need. Fortunately though, supplying so many laces at once means you can build up a stash in no time. Or you can even pick up aftermarket laces to complement pretty much any sneaker. So with all that in mind, we present you with 10 Sneakers That Look Better With A Lace Swap. Don't just imitate, though—get creative and take to Instagram to show us what you got. Don't forget the #ComplexSneakers tag.
