Sneakers tied ballerina style

Been seeing a lot of this in NYC-
Or maybe it’s always been a thing here and I’m only just now noticing: people tie their high-top sneakers by wrapping them around the ankle.
Like a pointe shoe.
But, you know, minus the satin ribbons.

    ha, until now I’ve just seen this on punks wearing high-top heavy boots like Dr. Martens (usually with red shoelaces on one side) ;)

    WOAH! I do that :D Never realized it was any sort of trend though, my Chucks just came with super long laces, so its the easiest way to tie them
