All you need to know about STOMPINLACES:
I'm really proud of my laces and I make each pair by hand, not machine! All laces are sold in PAIRS so that simply means if you want laces for 1 pair of boots you just order 1 as you will get 2 single laces in the pack!
5mm THICK POLYCORD
These laces are super strong, thick and really show up well in any sort of boot, being dirt resistant these laces will look good in your boots for years to come! Available in all the popular colours and in all the boot heights from 10 to 30 holes. The cord is also made in the UK too!
ALL my laces also feature the following:
- Metal bullet tips for strength and eliminate those annoying fraying ends
- Generous lace lengths for each height of boot to allow for a good wrap around at the top of your boot
- All made by hand here in the UK using only the best quality cords available
- Available in 6 lengths as standard and in all the classic range of colours
- All laces are sold in PAIRS so that simply means if you want laces for 1 pair of boots you just order 1 as you will get 2 single laces in the pack!
- Each pair of bootlaces comes in the official STOMPINLACES branded pack so you know that you are buying the best quality available
I use my own product on a daily basis as I am always in boots and I have learned from years of experience what good laces need to be like and have incorporated all of this into everything I make and offer to you here. You can buy with confidence, STOMPINLACES will not let you down!
GOOD TO KNOW:
I have a huge selection of boots and know that the eye holes are not all the same size! So you might find it good to know that I test each pair of laces that I make to ensure the metal bullet tips pass through the holes of a standard pair of UNDERGROUND boots which I have found to have the smallest of lace holes, so if it passes this test they will be good for most other brands which tend to have larger hole sizes!
I have all the following boot brands and the metal tips all pass through with ease: UNDERGROUND, GRINDER, DOC MARTEN, BOOTS & BRACES, KNIGHTSBRIDGE and RANGERS.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT LENGTH:
It can be difficult and confusing trying to find the right length laces for your boots, however read on and I might be able to help!
I have 6 standard lengths of laces which I make, they start at 200cm and go up to 500cm! I have added what boot holes (laces holes on 1 side of the boot) they will suit for a guide only. (But don't forget that everyone is different though and so are boots!).
Firstly it all depends on how big your calf is! The bigger your calf the longer a lace you will need.
Secondly it depends on if you wear your boots inside or outside your trousers and the thickness of your trousers if wearing them on the outside. Wearing your boots outside your trousers will need longer laces, thick trousers or leather for example will need longer too.
Thirdly it depends on your lacing style, there are many types you can do like CRISS CROSS, ZIG ZAG, LADDER LACING etc. (examples of lacing styles can be found at the bottom of this page)
Last but not least it also depends on your boot hole spacing. Good makes of boots like GRINDERS, DOC MARTENS and RANGERS will have nice evenly spaced holes, cheaper makes will not!
It all makes a difference! I have been wearing boots since I was a teenager and over the years built up a good knowledge on what works (and what doesnt!).
If your simply replacing old laces and happy with the length for new ones or for a different colour then simply measure the old lace and select the nearest available length offered on the site. I can custom make lengths too if you want an exact match to your exisiting old laces - just send me a message !
If you dont have old laces try using a piece of string then measure it after your happy with the result.
Simply put, the taller the boot and bigger the calf the LONGER the lace you will need. Dont forget that any excess lace can be wrapped around at the top of your boot like I do. I always prefer longer laces than shorter ones as you can always wrap around an tuck in rather than not have enough!
At STOMPINLACES I have designed distinctive packaging which not only lets you know the product contained within is top quality and a 100% genuine STOMPIN product but also turns the item into the perfect gift for any occasion.
