You may think all shoelaces are the same, but in fact, there are huge differences. For dress shoes, it is desirable to have thin, round or flat shoelaces that look elegant while thick shoelaces are reserved for tennis shoes. Never wear thick shoelaces with an Oxford shoe, because it looks chunky and lacks elegance.
These flat shoelaces are thin, and a bit more prominent with your Oxfords, Derbys or any other dress shoe.
Many cheap shoelaces use inferior cotton or blends, which causes the laces to wear more quickly or they snap if you pull too heavily. Not so these Fort Belvedere shoelaces. After an extensive testing period of 18 months, we are proud to introduce our colored shoelaces made of long staple cotton, which allows them to be very thin, without snapping apart if you pull very hard.
Basically, you can mix and match your shoe colors in any way you want.
Black goes well with dark or light grey, purple, green, pink or yellow.
Brown is good with orange, mid brown, yellow, blue, purple and pink.
At the end of the day, it's all up to your creativity. Do you have a pair of buckskin shoes or something that is a bit too formal, these laces will make it look more casual, and we offer brighter options such as orange, pink or yellow, as well as mellow ones such as green, purple and grey so you can be as subtle or as loud as you want.
