    Originally it was a football thing. As scarfs and other obvious football colors were banned in most venues in London, this was devised to serve as an identifier. I would suspect the original meanings were white = tottenham hotspur, blue = chelsea, violet = west ham, red = arsenal and so on... Here the meaning is simple white = nazi, red is usually worn by punk people...

    White: Nazi
    Red: communist or shed a 'coloured persons' blood
    Weird design-thingys like skulls and shit: emo or poser <-- it doesn't actually mean that, but they ARE the only ones wearing them, lol

    red usually just punks iv never rely looked into meanings of laces we dont rely have any punks or skins hear in Houston(well not in my area)and all the racism comes from dumbass hicks that hate every other race
    other than that its gangs and its not just laces its all form of clothing

    It's funny when some racist hick throws some white laces in his boots claiming skinhead and doesn't even know enough to straight lace them.

    It's funny how white laces have become synonymous with Nazis and racism. I could have sworn white laces started with the two tones and sharps, but when skinheads became a racist movement, they kept the white laces and bastardized them.

    I assumed it was just because the color clash looked cool. I like the way red laces in black boots looks or black laces in oxblood colored boots.

    'Skinhead' music covers quite a range - from the original Studio 1 and Jamaican ska / rocksteady / bluebeat sounds, on to 2-Tone and ending up with Oi! / streetpunk. Are you sure you can't find things you like from such a broad swathe? I don't think you've been looking hard enough :D

    In Britain in the late 70's early 80's white laces were mean't to be National Front and red laces were British Movement, or so i was told when i got the shit kicked out of me at school for wearing red laces. I see a program about gay Skinheads and coloured laces mean some thing completely different, guess what yellow laces stand for?
