I also decided to put some colored laces in my other new pair. I'm not exactly in love with the red/black against the flames, but it looks better than the other pairs of laces I have on hand: hot pink with silver; pastel stars.
I did one shoe in the standard-issue white, just to see how it looks. I'm kind of liking it.
Anyhow, I'm not wacky enough to wear a Chuck of a different color on each foot, and I'm probably not wacky enough to wear matching shoes with different shoelaces. I'm just barely wacky enough to carry off non-white shoelaces, for crying out loud. And in this case, I'm thinking that maybe the flame design is nutty enough on its own, and it doesn't need any additional embellishment. Note to self: Change the red/black lace back to white before I wear these anywhere.
