“Great customer service, excellent quality, fast delivery.” 5/5
Packaging: Lace Jam have gone for a minimalist look, with these resealable foil bags which allows them to be re-used to store your laces whenever your swapping them over.
Quality: The quality of the laces is good, while both being robust and strong showing no signs of fraying, the sizing of the laces are standard so you wont have any problems lacing up most trainers. These laces were used in models such as the Air Max 1, Air Max 95 and Asics Gel Lyte. The first thing I noticed is once you replace the stock laces you won’t even have to tie up your rope laces, just pull to comfort, your feet wont slip out of the shoe at all!
Details: In regards to the colours on the laces Lace Jam have matched them to popular model colours perfectly. In regards to the two colour laces like the Breds, the black and red are matched evenly same goes for the Bumblebee, again both colours are evenly balanced in tone rather then one colour being brighter then the other.
Price: If you’re a sneaker head who spent £100 plus pounds on your crepes and got stock laces with them, then £4.99 is not a high price to pay to gain some individuality.
Variety: Lace Jam’s variety is immense they have colour ways that relate to many popular sneakers eg. Breds, 3m, Carolina blue, 23 Red etc.
Delivery: On point they promise both free shipping and next day delivery, I ordered them on Tuesday before 5pm and received them Wednesday morning.
Customer Service: Top marks here the company is always maned and available for contact on any social network you will get a response within working hours.
Notes: Another thing to bear in mind is that these are great for runners, especially if you run at night as the 3m laces are easily seen when light hits them so thats thumbs up safety use for this product. Another product that they provide is the grenades, which are lace locks. Unlike the Air Jordan lace locks that loosen as you wear your trainers throughout the day, the lacejam version is a lace LOCK once used there is no need to tie your shoe laces.

AJ TRACEY ON THE AIR FORCE 1’S LONDON LEGACY
While many young Crepjunkie’s may be coping their first pair of Nike’s Air Force 1’s this year, the silhouette has remained a firm fixture in both street fashion and Hip Hop culture since its 1982 inception. Shifting its basketball function to a streetwear standout. Handed down through generations, the look of the model always seems to remain timeless.
Stories of New York’s unwavering support for the shoe are countless, and other cities’ relationships and cultural connections to the Air Force 1 are no exception. During the late ’90s, London maintained a strict underground following of the Air Force 1 prior to its embrace of fashion, music, and celebrity. During this period, the shoe appeal was wholly organic, being adopted and definitively styled by the streets.
JD Sports played a pivotal role in the growing success of the Air Force 1 in London during the early 2000s, through their release of exclusive colourways that gained a cult following, with U.S stores and consumers importing styles from the UK. Over time, the shoe’s status continued to grow, with the AF1 Carnival acting as a true reflection of London culture. Most recently, however, was Samuel Ross’ A Cold Wall* take on the shoe that paid homage to the architecture of the city.
To celebrate the models 35th anniversary Nike looked to four contemporary Londoners to share their individual perspectives on the Air Force 1 and its legacy in London, with AJ Tracey commenting on how highly the city regards the shoe: “You could be going somewhere nice — to the club, for example — and wear a nice shirt, smart trousers and then instead of formal shoes, you would wear a pair of fresh pair of Air Force 1.”
