    Nice.

    But I'm in the wrong family. My brother bought me some pizza at a gas station once and that's about it.

    Sometimes, little things make such a difference. Just got these brown (a nice, rich dark brown) leather boot laces from Guarded Goods.



    The leather is blemish free, consistent color, thickness/width, and buttery soft yet feel incredibly tough/strong. Far different from the ones I've gotten from kiwi & other sellers on Amazon which are brittle and dry feeling and comes cracked with all sorts of loose grain and uneven thickness & width. These are much better than laces from Red Wing as well, which I've purchased a few from but returned them all because every time one lace was substantially lighter in color or thinner than the other.

    An absolute steal for only $8 (+$5 S&H).

    Fit is fine for me. I have only ever owned Indyís. So this was a move from 10.5 in the Indy to my traditional 11D. Slightly roomy in the toe box but not big.

    Only problem is- DANG these are noisy. Like- tongue to upper rub noisy. Wow.

    Iím assuming boot cream and wear over time and it will subside.

    Not that anyone really cares, but if it helps one other person, great.

    So it was a pretty easy fix on the noise. Once I finally got a chance to sit down with them this morning, I took the laces off. And boom. Silent.

    The waxed laces were rubbing against the leather. Just need a different pair of laces and we are good to go (non waxed obviously).

    DUH. just needed literally 2 minutes of my attention and itís done.

    Those are beautiful! How wide are the old waxed laces? The flat ones from guarded goods are narrower (at 5mm, but they look more like 4mm... That 1mm does make a difference when laced up) than most I've been able to find at boot length.

    Also, the laces might stop squeaking after break in, no?

    Brown pebble grain AE MacNeil 2.0 bought from an AE Outlet over the Labor Day weekend...these are 'first quality' (I was told if the shoe bags were included then they were firsts) and the sale price was $140. This is my first pair of new Allen Edmonds shoes (I've got 4 other pairs from Ebay/Craigslist).
