Initially I was thinking round laces...but not sure how premium they get...it just seems fitting to suit the limited edition sneaker

flat or round waxed laces (whichever fits the design better)? There are several manufacturers in Northampton for example.
This!

the final version will be Deer Skin, these will be the SF-01 UltraLights and therefore exhibit a different construction (strobel), sole (it isn't Margom but of equivalent quality and ultralight) and some bio, more sustainable and environmentally friendly materials... and we are looking into a version these in vegan leather as well (and keep the classic SF-01s as they are)

So then we have:

SF-01 (v2)
- Full Veg Tan Calfskin, Horween CXL, Suede, Kanga
- Leather floorboard.
- No Tongue Gate, No Tongue Bridge
- Same Foam In-soles as v1
- Low top and Mid Top variants

SF-01 Horween Shell Cordovan SE
- Special, Limited Edition
- Goodyear construction on sneakers
- In-soles (still deciding)
- Low top and Mid top variants
- Extra soles inserted into each batch.
- Hidden Eyelets
- MIGHT be limited ONLY to people who already own a SF-01

SF-01 UltraLight
- Flexible, strobel construction.
- UltraLight, Italian made Rubber outsoles
- Deer Skin Upper (Vegan Leather upper maybe), UNLINED
- Coconut Floorboard
- Natural in-sole.
- Low Top Only
Whoa I’m in the shell sneakers.

Wow, those are as expensive as Alden and Carmina shell boots at that naked price.
they are hand-lasted and hand-welted in Italy so construction alone is more expensive... also i suspect with the volumes done at Carmina and Alden they get a far better price for the leather.

Carmina's are a different offering... I believe Goodyear in Spain? I guess it is all a matter of preference but as the basic offering is vastly different, our production costs can never compete with theirs.
I believe most of our collection at Naked is theirs at full price. Different product.
