Not sure if this has already been noted but the current BB sale includes cordovan ($100 off purchases over $500, $200 off purchases over $800). I felt obligated to order a pair of LHS for BB in #8.

As to the issue of using colored laces I'm all for it. When partnered with matching socks, I prefer argyles, I've always gotten compliments, especially from the ladies. They are definitely a conversation starter which draws interest and positive attention to a gentleman's footwear. Putting in coloured laces is a good reminder to buff your shoes before stepping out. It's also just a fun thing to do.

My other ankle boots only have 5-7 holes/hooks ... the 10 featured on my Indy's do seem excessive.

Thanks, Be. I've had similar experiences. Women enjoy playful socks and laces apparently.

Sorry to be a pain, but can you name all those? I like at least half of them smile.gif

Nothing bores a lady more than a man who takes himself too seriously.

my indys in 11 are perfect.

 

Ended up getting another pair of the snuff suede boots in a half size up from my indy's and they fit much better.

Great look...

What is the best place to get colored laces? I want to put in a order for a bunch of pairs.

Frans Boone has the best laces I have seen but I can't justify shipping laces from Europe...

Where is steeple chase?  I've been looking for more places to buy real shoes since i've been in Cincy.

I ordered 3 pairs from Benjo's.  Not bad, but a little $ for some shoe laces.  These are "pauls loft" from benjo's and the pink ones I posted earlier are "la rosa"   I got a pair of flat waxed in green from them for my indy boots and the color isn't that great.

 

 

Allen Edmond's replacement on ebay for $5 or so, they might be a good alternative.  This isn't my auction, nor do I have any interest with the seller:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/290856895541?var=590102570934&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

 

I'm not sure if I'm aloud to link to ebay?

Shoelaces express has a huge selection of materials, styles, colors, etc (don't let the lame Internet 1.5 website scare you off).  I initially found them when searching for kevlar laces.  Not many style options, but for boots, they would be last pair you'd ever need.

Unionmade : Swung by the shop and the person I asked said they weren't expecting any in the near future.

Any info on where to snag a pair would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Two Weeks ago, I got a pair (size 9.) at the Alden store, downtown San Francisco-- tried size 9d during the process

I'm not worried about the bow, but the intense restriction feeling sorta kinda kills me. I know they're new and can be stretched, but for $500 I don't want to be in pain/lose circulation. thoughts on amount of break-in/give? Store said I could return/have them stretched if need be.

 

the store ordered them very narrow for my feet. they fit snug--maybe too snug.
