Shopping for Shoelaces

Topic: Shopping

Posted: Thu, Mar 31, 2005

You'd think that finding shoelaces would be one of those no-brainer shopping experiences that's easily taken care of. You'd think.

My cat likes to gnaw on shoelaces. I don't blame her for that; I figure that since she's a rescued kitty who had a fairly traumatic kittenhood before I adopted her, if she eats my laces it's my fault, really. After all, I'm the one who failed to put my shoes away. It's not her fault she's neurotic. So I don't give her a hard time about it. I just replace the chewed-up laces with a stash I have in the drawer, make sure she doesn't get ill from it, and put my shoes away better.

Last year, though, I bought a cool pair of Adidas Supernova Trail shoes at Galyans (now Dicks) in Castleton. I got them to wear to the gym, and I picked them out not only because they fit well, but because they're grey and blue and look cool. It didn't occur to me that the color would be a problem.

When Dru Dru chewed up the laces of my gym shoes, I discovered that replacing them wasn't easy, because the laces are blue with little yellow racing stripes. Lots of new shoes styles have these specialty color laces; look over the racks at any sporting shoe shop and you can probably count a dozen or more different colors and styles that are beyond your basic white.

Putting plain white laces in my shoes looked really lame, so I started to search around for something that resembled the originals. I managed to find a navy blue pair of laces, sans stripes, at Meijers but they weren't quite long enough, and constantly came untied. The blue was also a bit off, and I realize I'm being picky, but I notice even if no one else does. Target had your basic whites along with some wacky wide colored laces, but I didn't really fancy looking like Punky Brewster at the gym, so I searched on. KMart didn't help me out either.

So I went back to the source, looking for the specialty laces at the store where I bought the specialty shoes -- Galyans. And although they charged me $85 bucks for my shoes, Galyans/Dicks doesn't have replacement laces for them. In fact, they didn't have anything even resembling them; not even a plain navy blue color. Their selection of laces was pretty tiny, actually, compared to the range of shoes on the wall.

So I schlepped onward through the mall. Footlocker's two tiny rows of laces offered the same wacky colors as Target, but nothing resembling what I needed. The Finish Line was where I ended up, appropriately. They actually had what I was looking for. Navy Blue shoe laces with thin light blue stripes, long enough to tie and double knot so they don't come undone all day.

Now that I'm done running all over town, I can put my shoes on and do the kind of running I really want to do.

Glad you found some laces. I'll have to remember Finish Line. I had a similar problem a while back and had to settle for all black as a proxy. Functional, but not quite as cool as the original laces.

I had my boots resoled a few weeks ago at Kimmel Shoe Repair in Broad Ripple. There were a couple spinning racks of laces there. You get the feeling walking in the place that they can fix any problem related to your footwear. No frills, nothing fancy, every inch of the little shop was filled with tools, shoe parts, and a sign that read "pay for your repair upfront and save 10% off the total bill".

Lots of new shoes styles have these specialty color laces; look over the racks at any sporting shoe shop and you can probably count a dozen or more different colors and styles that are beyond your basic white.

Putting plain white laces in my shoes looked really lame, so I started to search around for something that resembled the originals. I managed to find a navy blue pair of laces, sans stripes, at Meijers but they weren't quite long enough, and constantly came untied. The blue was also a bit off, and I realize I'm being picky, but I notice even if no one else does. Target had your basic whites along with some wacky wide colored laces, but I didn't really fancy looking like Punky Brewster at the gym, so I searched on. KMart didn't help me out either.

So I went back to the source, looking for the specialty laces at the store where I bought the specialty shoes -- Galyans. And although they charged me $85 bucks for my shoes, Galyans/Dicks doesn't have replacement laces for them. In fact, they didn't have anything even resembling them; not even a plain navy blue color. Their selection of laces was pretty tiny, actually, compared to the range of shoes on the wall.

So I schlepped onward through the mall. Footlocker's two tiny rows of laces offered the same wacky colors as Target, but nothing resembling what I needed. The Finish Line was where I ended up, appropriately. They actually had what I was looking for. Navy Blue shoe laces with thin light blue stripes, long enough to tie and double knot so they don't come undone all day.

Now that I'm done running all over town, I can put my shoes on and do the kind of running I really want to do.

Glad you found some laces. I'll have to remember Finish Line. I had a similar problem a while back and had to settle for all black as a proxy. Functional, but not quite as cool as the original laces.

I had my boots resoled a few weeks ago at Kimmel Shoe Repair in Broad Ripple. There were a couple spinning racks of laces there. You get the feeling walking in the place that they can fix any problem related to your footwear. No frills, nothing fancy, every inch of the little shop was filled with tools, shoe parts, and a sign that read "pay for your repair upfront and save 10% off the total bill".

IndyScribe: Shopping for Shoelaces

Shopping for Shoelaces

Topic: Shopping

Posted: Thu, Mar 31, 2005

You'd think that finding shoelaces would be one of those no-brainer shopping experiences that's easily taken care of. You'd think.

My cat likes to gnaw on shoelaces. I don't blame her for that; I figure that since she's a rescued kitty who had a fairly traumatic kittenhood before I adopted her, if she eats my laces it's my fault, really. After all, I'm the one who failed to put my shoes away. It's not her fault she's neurotic. So I don't give her a hard time about it. I just replace the chewed-up laces with a stash I have in the drawer, make sure she doesn't get ill from it, and put my shoes away better.

Last year, though, I bought a cool pair of Adidas Supernova Trail shoes at Galyans (now Dicks) in Castleton. I got them to wear to the gym, and I picked them out not only because they fit well, but because they're grey and blue and look cool. It didn't occur to me that the color would be a problem.

Their selection of laces was pretty tiny, actually, compared to the range of shoes on the wall.

So I schlepped onward through the mall. Footlocker's two tiny rows of laces offered the same wacky colors as Target, but nothing resembling what I needed. The Finish Line was where I ended up, appropriately. They actually had what I was looking for. Navy Blue shoe laces with thin light blue stripes, long enough to tie and double knot so they don't come undone all day.

Now that I'm done running all over town, I can put my shoes on and do the kind of running I really want to do.

Glad you found some laces. I'll have to remember Finish Line. I had a similar problem a while back and had to settle for all black as a proxy. Functional, but not quite as cool as the original laces.

Shopping for Shoelaces

Topic: Shopping

Posted: Thu, Mar 31, 2005

You'd think that finding shoelaces would be one of those no-brainer shopping experiences that's easily taken care of. You'd think.

My cat likes to gnaw on shoelaces. I don't blame her for that; I figure that since she's a rescued kitty who had a fairly traumatic kittenhood before I adopted her, if she eats my laces it's my fault, really. After all, I'm the one who failed to put my shoes away. It's not her fault she's neurotic. So I don't give her a hard time about it. I just replace the chewed-up laces with a stash I have in the drawer, make sure she doesn't get ill from it, and put my shoes away better.

Last year, though, I bought a cool pair of Adidas Supernova Trail shoes at Galyans (now Dicks) in Castleton. I got them to wear to the gym, and I picked them out not only because they fit well, but because they're grey and blue and look cool. It didn't occur to me that the color would be a problem.

When Dru Dru chewed up the laces of my gym shoes, I discovered that replacing them wasn't easy, because the laces are blue with little yellow racing stripes. Lots of new shoes styles have these specialty color laces; look over the racks at any sporting shoe shop and you can probably count a dozen or more different colors and styles that are beyond your basic white.

Putting plain white laces in my shoes looked really lame, so I started to search around for something that resembled the originals. I managed to find a navy blue pair of laces, sans stripes, at Meijers but they weren't quite long enough, and constantly came untied. The blue was also a bit off, and I realize I'm being picky, but I notice even if no one else does. Target had your basic whites along with some wacky wide colored laces, but I didn't really fancy looking like Punky Brewster at the gym, so I searched on. KMart didn't help me out either.

So I went back to the source, looking for the specialty laces at the store where I bought the specialty shoes -- Galyans. And although they charged me $85 bucks for my shoes, Galyans/Dicks doesn't have replacement laces for them. In fact, they didn't have anything even resembling them; not even a plain navy blue color.

IndyScribe: Shopping for Shoelaces

Shopping for Shoelaces

Topic: Shopping

Posted: Thu, Mar 31, 2005

You'd think that finding shoelaces would be one of those no-brainer shopping experiences that's easily taken care of. You'd think.

My cat likes to gnaw on shoelaces. I don't blame her for that; I figure that since she's a rescued kitty who had a fairly traumatic kittenhood before I adopted her, if she eats my laces it's my fault, really. After all, I'm the one who failed to put my shoes away. It's not her fault she's neurotic. So I don't give her a hard time about it. I just replace the chewed-up laces with a stash I have in the drawer, make sure she doesn't get ill from it, and put my shoes away better.

Last year, though, I bought a cool pair of Adidas Supernova Trail shoes at Galyans (now Dicks) in Castleton. I got them to wear to the gym, and I picked them out not only because they fit well, but because they're grey and blue and look cool. It didn't occur to me that the color would be a problem.

When Dru Dru chewed up the laces of my gym shoes, I discovered that replacing them wasn't easy, because the laces are blue with little yellow racing stripes. Lots of new shoes styles have these specialty color laces; look over the racks at any sporting shoe shop and you can probably count a dozen or more different colors and styles that are beyond your basic white.

Putting plain white laces in my shoes looked really lame, so I started to search around for something that resembled the originals. I managed to find a navy blue pair of laces, sans stripes, at Meijers but they weren't quite long enough, and constantly came untied. The blue was also a bit off, and I realize I'm being picky, but I notice even if no one else does. Target had your basic whites along with some wacky wide colored laces, but I didn't really fancy looking like Punky Brewster at the gym, so I searched on. KMart didn't help me out either.

So I went back to the source, looking for the specialty laces at the store where I bought the specialty shoes -- Galyans. And although they charged me $85 bucks for my shoes, Galyans/Dicks doesn't have replacement laces for them. In fact, they didn't have anything even resembling them; not even a plain navy blue color. Their selection of laces was pretty tiny, actually, compared to the range of shoes on the wall.

So I schlepped onward through the mall. Footlocker's two tiny rows of laces offered the same wacky colors as Target, but nothing resembling what I needed. The Finish Line was where I ended up, appropriately. They actually had what I was looking for. Navy Blue shoe laces with thin light blue stripes, long enough to tie and double knot so they don't come undone all day.

Now that I'm done running all over town, I can put my shoes on and do the kind of running I really want to do.

IndyScribe: Shopping for Shoelaces

Shopping for Shoelaces

Topic: Shopping

Posted: Thu, Mar 31, 2005

You'd think that finding shoelaces would be one of those no-brainer shopping experiences that's easily taken care of. You'd think.

My cat likes to gnaw on shoelaces. I don't blame her for that; I figure that since she's a rescued kitty who had a fairly traumatic kittenhood before I adopted her, if she eats my laces it's my fault, really. After all, I'm the one who failed to put my shoes away. It's not her fault she's neurotic. So I don't give her a hard time about it. I just replace the chewed-up laces with a stash I have in the drawer, make sure she doesn't get ill from it, and put my shoes away better.

Last year, though, I bought a cool pair of Adidas Supernova Trail shoes at Galyans (now Dicks) in Castleton. I got them to wear to the gym, and I picked them out not only because they fit well, but because they're grey and blue and look cool. It didn't occur to me that the color would be a problem.

When Dru Dru chewed up the laces of my gym shoes, I discovered that replacing them wasn't easy, because the laces are blue with little yellow racing stripes. Lots of new shoes styles have these specialty color laces; look over the racks at any sporting shoe shop and you can probably count a dozen or more different colors and styles that are beyond your basic white.

Putting plain white laces in my shoes looked really lame, so I started to search around for something that resembled the originals. I managed to find a navy blue pair of laces, sans stripes, at Meijers but they weren't quite long enough, and constantly came untied. The blue was also a bit off, and I realize I'm being picky, but I notice even if no one else does. Target had your basic whites along with some wacky wide colored laces, but I didn't really fancy looking like Punky Brewster at the gym, so I searched on. KMart didn't help me out either.

So I went back to the source, looking for the specialty laces at the store where I bought the specialty shoes -- Galyans. And although they charged me $85 bucks for my shoes, Galyans/Dicks doesn't have replacement laces for them. In fact, they didn't have anything even resembling them; not even a plain navy blue color. Their selection of laces was pretty tiny, actually, compared to the range of shoes on the wall.

So I schlepped onward through the mall. Footlocker's two tiny rows of laces offered the same wacky colors as Target, but nothing resembling what I needed. The Finish Line was where I ended up, appropriately. They actually had what I was looking for. Navy Blue shoe laces with thin light blue stripes, long enough to tie and double knot so they don't come undone all day.

Now that I'm done running all over town, I can put my shoes on and do the kind of running I really want to do.

Glad you found some laces. I'll have to remember Finish Line. I had a similar problem a while back and had to settle for all black as a proxy. Functional, but not quite as cool as the original laces.

I had my boots resoled a few weeks ago at Kimmel Shoe Repair in Broad Ripple. There were a couple spinning racks of laces there. You get the feeling walking in the place that they can fix any problem related to your footwear. No frills, nothing fancy, every inch of the little shop was filled with tools, shoe parts, and a sign that read "pay for your repair upfront and save 10% off the total bill".

When Dru Dru chewed up the laces of my gym shoes, I discovered that replacing them wasn't easy, because the laces are blue with little yellow racing stripes. Lots of new shoes styles have these specialty color laces; look over the racks at any sporting shoe shop and you can probably count a dozen or more different colors and styles that are beyond your basic white.

Putting plain white laces in my shoes looked really lame, so I started to search around for something that resembled the originals. I managed to find a navy blue pair of laces, sans stripes, at Meijers but they weren't quite long enough, and constantly came untied. The blue was also a bit off, and I realize I'm being picky, but I notice even if no one else does. Target had your basic whites along with some wacky wide colored laces, but I didn't really fancy looking like Punky Brewster at the gym, so I searched on. KMart didn't help me out either.

So I went back to the source, looking for the specialty laces at the store where I bought the specialty shoes -- Galyans. And although they charged me $85 bucks for my shoes, Galyans/Dicks doesn't have replacement laces for them. In fact, they didn't have anything even resembling them; not even a plain navy blue color. Their selection of laces was pretty tiny, actually, compared to the range of shoes on the wall.

So I schlepped onward through the mall. Footlocker's two tiny rows of laces offered the same wacky colors as Target, but nothing resembling what I needed. The Finish Line was where I ended up, appropriately. They actually had what I was looking for. Navy Blue shoe laces with thin light blue stripes, long enough to tie and double knot so they don't come undone all day.

Now that I'm done running all over town, I can put my shoes on and do the kind of running I really want to do.

Glad you found some laces. I'll have to remember Finish Line. I had a similar problem a while back and had to settle for all black as a proxy. Functional, but not quite as cool as the original laces.

I had my boots resoled a few weeks ago at Kimmel Shoe Repair in Broad Ripple. There were a couple spinning racks of laces there. You get the feeling walking in the place that they can fix any problem related to your footwear. No frills, nothing fancy, every inch of the little shop was filled with tools, shoe parts, and a sign that read "pay for your repair upfront and save 10% off the total bill".

IndyScribe: Shopping for Shoelaces

Shopping for Shoelaces

Topic: Shopping

Posted: Thu, Mar 31, 2005

You'd think that finding shoelaces would be one of those no-brainer shopping experiences that's easily taken care of. You'd think.

My cat likes to gnaw on shoelaces. I don't blame her for that; I figure that since she's a rescued kitty who had a fairly traumatic kittenhood before I adopted her, if she eats my laces it's my fault, really. After all, I'm the one who failed to put my shoes away. It's not her fault she's neurotic. So I don't give her a hard time about it. I just replace the chewed-up laces with a stash I have in the drawer, make sure she doesn't get ill from it, and put my shoes away better.

Last year, though, I bought a cool pair of Adidas Supernova Trail shoes at Galyans (now Dicks) in Castleton.
