marc jacobs wants you to get tied up.

His flip flops sell for about $50, flats go for around $170, and if you're really lucky, you can score his signature stilettos for $300.

Here's the harsh reality: if you want to wear Marc Jacobs on your feet, it's going to cost you.

But we've found a way to get around that little problem. The designer has teamed up with artsy shoelace company Starks on a mini-line of customized MJ laces.

Available in black and white, the two styles come stamped with his iconic logo. And at only $4 each, this is designer footwear we can actually afford.

Available at Marc by Marc Jacobs stores.
