While our round red shoelaces were initially made for boots, it wasn't long before their striking colour and stylistic possibilities struck a chord with every type of shoe.
So it's no wonder then that today, red laces can be seen around the world, from the beaches of Bora Bora to that big screen in Times Square they always cut to in films when someone is making a speech.
Red is the colour that's impossible to miss. They don't make stop lights and signs red because they don't care if people see them or not. When something needs to be seen, they colour it red, and when your shoe game needs to be seen, it needs to be red.
Is "need" too strong a word? Nothing is too strong when it comes to this colour.
Red is the colour of nature's most unstoppable forces, which will be harnessed by your shoes the moment you lace them up. Lava, fire, the ferocity of a sunrise or sunset in the smog-laden city of Los Angeles, and tulips, all of Mother Earth's most unrelenting powers will be represented on your shoes.
But does that mean red will make you an overwhelming presence? No, you'll be the perfect level of whelming.
These are shoelaces, not a full suit – round red shoelaces make your game pop without starting a fully-fledged fiesta (unless you want a fully-fledged fiesta, in which case you should match your new red laces with a full red suit.)
