A Guy's Guide to Mastering the Colored Shoelace

Guys, Let's Master the Colored Shoelace

No longer restricted to running sneakers, colored laces are one of the simplest (and most of-the-moment) ways for a guy to announce his style savvy. Just check out these quick rules, and you’re good to get tying.

Where to wear:

  • In a creative office
  • Out on the town
  • To a wedding

Keep in mind:

  • Stick to classic oxford shapes
  • Steer clear of matchy color motifs (yellow shirt + yellow laces = trying too hard)
  • A no-go for big client meetings

And for all you commitment-phobes out there – considering that most laces run downward of $5 a pop, you can change up the hues as often as you desire. Talk about a win-win.

Our Donald J Pliner Men Boutique opens Wednesday, February 6, at 11AM ET.
