Custom Wire Laces - Made @TechShop!

About: Maker/Inventor-thing [NYC x SF]

Background:

I was given a pair of Clark Desert Boots without laces; I was being lazy so I just wore them.

Until one day I was chasing down a MUNI and I thought, "Hmm I really need laces."

Fast forward - I had extra wire from powder coating so I just started using them as laces.

Then I thought, why not make them into a design - and now here we are.

:)

Materials:

Shoes/boots

Wire

Tools:

Needle nose pliers
