These fun laces really amped up the style of the plain black boots.They went from “old lady” boots to street-savvy lookers. I really like the quality and heft of the laces, and the gold metallic tips on the ends really dress up the boots. I even added a small gold charm to one of the laces at the bottom, to really make these boots noticeable. My sister loved my boots and laces so much she ordered the exact same boots and laces! Please…make these same laces in black with silver thread/silver tips -- we'll definitely buy those too!
