Good shoes let down by lace issues.
5 November 2018
The shoes themselves are a large fit, I take a 7 and got a 6 in these but still needed to add an insole. They are comfortable seem well made and quite sturdy with decent sole and visually look good. Suede finish might not cope with oil so well but not an issue for me. My BIG gripe though is the eyelets and supplied laces. The laces won't pull through the eyelets at all to tighten the shoes. Original laces are a "lumpy" texture and these just grip the flat square edges of the eyelets and wont move. I swapped for some flat trainer laces but these still tend to grip in the eyelets so am going to source some smaller smooth round laces which hopefully will be better. Would recommend the shoes but only if you have plenty of time to work on the laces.
