    I got those red ones at Target. They don't have a lot, and they always seem to be the 47" length, but they had those at least.

    Is the only place to find interesting shoe laces online? I went to about 5 stores today and couldn't find much of anything. Marshalls doesn't carry laces at all and Target had almost nothing. Even DSW had almost nothing...one package in white and one in black... I found this odd.

    I got some red ones at Target today... Not sure how I like them. I'd like them better at 36" (instead of 45") and more of a burgundy:

    @andrew7 J.Crew has the desert boot laces pretty cheap in some nice colors... http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/accessories/necessaryluxuries/PRDOVR~37537/99102249514/ENE~1+2+3+22+4294967294+20~~~20+16+4294967152~15~~ ~~~~~/37537.jsp


    I've swapped laces out in my DB's but can't find any leather or dressy ones for my Veblens or my Lands End Canvas'.

    Jason, definitely would dig either Columbia blue (halfway between royal and carolina blue) or violet or lavender.


    Ben, would think dusty Purcells being a muted version of red would look awesome with a pair of leather laces, especially if they were more of a single tone of leather, unlike the linked article where the sidecut is different.


    Had been meaning to swap my laces out on a bunch of shoes, esp some wings and desert boots and now you guys got me amped to do it this weekend.

    I have some navy colored tennis shoes, plimsolls actually. I put some light brown/tan laces on them and I think the color goes much better than with just standard white laces. I think its a pretty easy way too add a pop of color or texture to something that is usually just one solid color.

    Here's the longwings I want to add some colorful shoelaces to:

    I've never paid much attention to my shoe laces. Maybe I will in the future. I'm waiting on the arrival of some eBay-ed brown Allen Edmonds which means my current pseudo-dressy brown leather shoes are free to look a little unconventional. Maybe some blue shoelaces. Blue could look good with my Earthkeeper boots as well.


    My Jack Purcells are a dusty red, so a little bit louder than your standard grey or off-white sneaker. I saw that leather shoelace article but thought the leather shoelace combined with the red color might make them a little obnoxious.

    I immediately tried it out as soon as I read that article months ago. I liked the look on my Converse All-Stars.

    Like the top one, leather ones look great too. Like Jason's idea of colored laces on some longwings. Red would be cool and subtle, think you could probably pull off something else like a those light blue that Mag posted. Anyone have any great sources for cheap/solid laces, especially colored round laces rather than flat?
