Shoes are cool sometimes. But you know how they can be even cooler? Hand-painted, color blocked leather shoelaces. Texas-based Comb Collective’s first collection is a sultry set of shoelaces that are sure to make fireworks of fashion burst from your feet. An instant way to add personality to your kicks, the three designers behind Comb Collective — Johanna Adkins, Elizabeth Lodowski and James Boone — also collaborate with local charities and organizations to fuse design and good-doings.
“Together with Project LOOP (Lessons On and Off the Pavement), a local Texas organization exposing young minds to opportunities in the creative industries, Comb Collective is developing a co-branded and co-designed LOOP Lace to be launched Fall 2012. The collective goal in this venture is to offer a relevant and desirable product to the current footwear and accessory market that will yield a new revenue source for Project LOOP, and to create jobs for the next generation.” Find your perfect shoelaces on the Comb Collective website.
