2017’s obsession with millennial pink knows no bounds. Pink sneakers practically release every week now and it’s not easy resisting the impulse to buy. But there’s a quick DIY way to cheat the system.
Swap out with some pastel pink lacing. Get to know Doctor Laces – its Katakana laces are available in pink and custom-made to agree with the adidas NMD, UltraBOOST and YEEZY. $8 USD and voilà, you have a new sneaker completely. Be your own customizer.
WHAT IS IT: Doctor Laces’ Japanese Katakana Laces
WHY IT’S WORTH THE HYPE: For $8 USD you can instantly up any pair in your rotation by lace-swapping. Moreso, it’s printed with Japanese Katakana, not unlike the NMD_R1 Primeknit “Japan Black Boost.”
There’s enough pink to satiate those on the millennial pink train but it’s subtle enough to call out to minimalists too. In particular, they stand out on all-white sneakers – imagine a pink-accented YEEZY BOOST 350 V2. There’s also a black, burgundy and white colorway.
WHERE YOU CAN FIND IT: Shop the custom laces at Amazon, priced at a mere $8.50 USD.
