    The Leffot blog has an entry about coloured laces. The tan lace / black oxford combo looks surprisingly good.

    Those do look interesting (black shoes w/ brown laces)... could you get away with a brown belt w/ those shoes or would you stay w/ a black belt?

    Tried this bunch?

    I've been amazed at the difference that a change in lace color can make to the look of a shoe. It can really dress up or dress down a shoe in ways I never thought.

    Thanks for the link.. seems like its more athletic shoe inclined. Im looking for thin, waxed laces for business shoes, though.

    I can't remember the details but I think at one point another SF member was looking for something similar (bigbris, maybe?) and I think he found someone. If it was bigbris, it might be worth PMing him.

    I have only seen colors like that with some tennis shoes like the youth wear, not really appropriate for business wear or antyhing other situation really.

    I sourced some perfect waxed shoes lace, and basically can buy them in any color. [​IMG] [​IMG] There are two versions, the round ones as shown on the photos, and flat ones (5mm or 0.2" wide). I can get some pairs for you at $1.5/pr, but minimum order for me is 5 pairs in each color.

    What lengths can you get?

    Any length as long as I can place an order of more than 5 pairs for each color, each length and each shape. But I think 84cm (33") works for most dress shoes. Correct me if I am wrong.
