Where to Find Bootlaces??

Post by Strong Eagle » Sun, 21 Mar 2010 2:46 pm

I need 54 to 56 inch boot laces, round or oval, prefer gray. I can't find anything. I think I could find weapons grade plutonium in Singapore easier than finding shoelaces.

So far tried: Mustafa, Queensway shoe shops, Takashimaya, Tanglin, Carrefour... no have.

SE, I had the same problems several years ago. It's an exercise in frustration. I ended up ordering them from online. Damn sight easier.

my dad once told me construction workers gave up laces on their boots as they always break. instead they using wire :D !

have you try any army surplus type shop? or maybe mister minit or timberland? i too once was looking for long laces because my timberland boot metal runner just chewed up the laces.

Not sure if they have such long ones, but my daughter just bought some cool laces with skulls on them at Mini Tunes--seriously. They have rows and rows of laces. You migth try Daiso too--they have laces.
