A while back I picked up on eBay a pair of Allen Edmonds patent leather bluchers, the Kendall. While it isn't the best design for a black-tie event, they were only worn once and I got an incredible deal. To spruce them up I am making some silk shoelaces, but am hitting a kink with the two pairs of eyelets. Would I be breaking some rule to have a cobbler add an additional two sets of eyelets? There is plenty of room between the existing eyelets. For reference the size is 14D and the eyelets are currently 1.25" apart.
