ROPES LACES have been on our radar for a hot minute – while the idea of switching up the supplied laces on trainers is a polarising one, Ropes are without doubt at the forefront of the UK market in terms of product quality and variation.

Borne out of mix of aesthetic appreciation and a certain scorn for general release kicks reissued with patterned laces and sold at a premium, Ropes aim to make that style more accessible with a dizzying array of colour choices and lace shapes. Founder Alex Williams has most certainly put the work in where it matters on his product, with a strong set of graphics, attractive packaging and a line of imagery that proves how certain shoes are upgraded with the addition of these laces.

After trying numerous different combinations with varying degrees of success in terms of colour-matching, we are not afraid to say that rope laces do not work with every shoe. However, fit them in a pair that works with them and they’re instantly elevated to new levels. What’s more, with the upcoming launch of the Flats range, those shoes which don’t take to a round lace can still be given the same treatment, with the same checkerboard patterns and 3M flashes appearing on a flat lace.
