Tip: Glue Laces
October 13, 1997


This month's tip is an offshoot from our Goo Laces tip One year ago.

It appears that Ergo, now living in New York, has set rat genitalia aside to report on this useful method of shoelace preservation.

to update the wonderfull world of goo laces, i bring you a technique which will both keep your shoelaces from breaking and allow you to motherfucking represent dope kicks nyc style yo.

they say the shoes make the man, and since shoe-goo covered dirty shoes will never help get you chicks, the boys in the city have devised a method to keep your shoes looking dope even after hours of skating, just in case you have to go to the club directly: do not pass go, do not put your chill shoes on.

the magical technique, you ask? super glue. works even better than the goo for laces, doesn't gather so much dirt, and can also be added to the seams and threads of your shoe for added life expectancy; without copmrimising your chances with the girlies, or props from the bros.

of course i still rock the goo, but have modified my technique to include superglued laces and seams, with a thin layer of goo at the ollie areas for maximum ollie grippage and a shoe life approaching (sometimes exceeding) two weeks. of course it still takes my shoes off of the "cill-able" category, have but i can win the accolades of the bro's and adoration of the girls even without bonafide chill shoes on. the secret's in the sweat.

so fucking check out the Super Glue method , and before you know it you'll be skatin' in nikes and representin' proper yo!
