Only For The Rich: Pure Gold Shoelaces
By Anthea Quay, 13 Aug 2012
To match your 24K gold Nike shoes, mr.kennedy claims that it has created “the world’s first pure gold shoelaces”.
The 24-karat gold laces are hand-woven out of gold threads, using “ancient, artisan jewelry techniques”.
Each set of luxury laces takes approximately 120 hours to produce, and are handmade by a team in Colombia.
Only 10 pairs of these are produced, with each pair retailing at US$19,000.
According to mr.kennedy, when you purchase a pair of gold laces, “they will be delivered by security and laced for you anywhere in the world”.
And if gold is not your color, you could always opt for the pure silver laces the company also produces, that retail at just $3,000 each pair—a steal compared to the gold ones.
But if both gold and silver are not your color, we understand.
