Rachel’s Christmas present to me was a pair of customized Converse All Stars. I’m clearly not an impartial observer when it comes to handing out the Best Wife Ever award, but you’ve got to admit these are some sweet shoes. I especially like the “party on the inside” lining and the perfectly matched navy laces she found.

With such awesome shoes, I needed to find an equally awesome way of lacing them. I ultimately settled on a variation of the Ladder style over the long weekend. I think they look good, especially with the navy laces. They also fit better than my other Chucks, as it turns out the men’s shoes run about a half size larger than other shoes.
