Although I do not have a collection, I´ll post my pictures in here, see it as the beginning of a collection Wink

The shoe´s called “Superstar 1 Beckenbauer Pack”.

I saw it first in a catalogue from a big german mailorder, but they only had it in green and black.

I didn´t want those colors, soI looked it up online, and I found out that they also come in grey, but all online shops only had black and green….

Finally I found them at office London, and after lots of trouble with wrong sizes and double deliveries I now have them, and I absolutely love the material.

Now I am looking for a pair made out of canvas with leather stripes, but I think, they´re hard to find….



Until then, enjoy my Pictures

By "proper" you mean with fat laces?

What is wrong with my lacing?

I used to lace my shoes with slightly fatter laces, about 1 cm, that´s as fat as I will go with them, but all fat laces are from 1,5cm upwards.

How could my lacing be improved?

If you search for "lacing" in the search bar you will find enough information about lacing.
This wil help also http://bboylaces.com/shoe-lacing-methods...ezp-2.html

Maybe don't thread your laces through the tongue. Or try leaving the top holes unlaced. Take a look through some of the pics and you'll see many examples of good lacing.

Supe like Wanton, Buju like Banton

yep, what they said.
don't use the tongue loop
be consistent with the overlaps (right side or left side)
fats, thins, vintage, don't matter, just the lacing style has to represent

Tie the laces all the way up the left side until you get to the last hole, then head over to the bottom right hole and lace every second hole.
When you get to the top, tie a fuck off great bow and put on some drum and bass.........

You could still make it better on the left shoe in the pic. You can see that the top two pairs are not aligned the same way as the rest. Change those around and you're good to go. Smile

It's how a lot of us prefer the laces but each to their own.
The lace going to the outside of the foot goes over the top.

Looking at your original lacing, either by luck or by design, you went over, under, then over twice, under, then over again and exactly mirrored that on the other shoe, somehow.
You did you're own flavour of mirror over/underlap!
