Popularized by MGK (Machine Gun Kelly)'s EST movement, "Lace Up" is a life mantra. Basically it means that no matter what, get up, "Lace Up" your Chuck Ts (MGK's shoe of choice), and get out there and make things happen. People who sat around, even in dark times, accomplished little. It's those who, no matter what, get up and face the day, fight for what they want to happen, that change the world.

Lace up means life is hard but you just should get ready and wait what life brings you and give a damn about what stress you at the moment because destiny will make it right (:

A phrase that originated in prison but is used amongst Peckerwood/Skinhead subculture (and no doubt other similar groups) to indicate getting ready to fight.
When an altercation has reached the point of physical violence often prisoners will go and make sure they have footwear on before initiating the confrontation.
