There are plenty of websites which sell laces, I bet you can find some orange and black ones.

quite new to here…looking for a pair of leather boots in a dark brown. i can't get past mephisto wild horse:

unfortunately, my mate has a pair that ,although he hardly wears, i know it'd be slightly awkward getting the same pair. so, does anyone have any suggestions to avoid this awkwardness?

*Stop being friends with him/seeing him?

*Kill him?

*Ask your mate if, seeing that he hardly wears them, he could sell them to you (if you're the same size)?

*Search long and hard for a pair of brown leather boots that you like more than Mephisto Wild Horse?

yeah i've been doing that for a bit but can't really find anything within that sort of price range. either that or i find suede ones i like. thought i'd post on here for the first time after lurking for a while to try and see if anyone had any inspiration…

again not good not as bad as the others though, if you like that kind of trainer/boot hybrid have you had a look at the Nike af1 duck boot? they look great for winter imo, but for that kind of money I'd probably go for some redwings.

If you like that style go for the real deal and get some timberlands:

i got some knackered Grenson stanley brogues resoled with a vibram today, great service from timpson Holborn cost £55 and were ready the next day. Although not my ideal shoe for this sole it was better than chucking them out or buy the grenson archies for £200+

Guys in the shop were funny, 'Why do you want to do this'… 'Strangest request i have had in 30 years' Laughing out loud

Do you think it would be possible to somehow put a heel on vibram soles and would it look stupid? Just wondering.
