hahahaha. awesome cartoon. did you make that yourself? g transistor: im not arguing that the blue existed for men. but they did make it for women as well. i saw them at the store along with the yellow ones. but the laces on dmashs are way too thin to be the mens. they look just like the lows' laces. lol thats why i stated 'I think the laces in my blues are smaller lowtop laces, not the female hightop laces'. I think the boutique where these were originally purchased hooked it up with lowtop laces instead of high top ones on accident. they can't lace fully through the top ring, unlike the womens hightop laces which can. I'm about 99.99% sure they're mens lowtop laces. I like the look of it though. Looks a little cleaner, but if you're going balls out I guess you would want the fat ones.
