AGLIT ITALY specializes in leather and suede shoe laces designed to bring some personality to footwear. Picking up colored laces is a no-brainer in order to lift your shoes, but AGLIT ITALY takes things one step further by producing theirs in more refined fabrics with rich jewel tone colors and hence setting themselves apart from other lace makers as an accessory luxury brand.
I visited their pop up store to check out the goods and brought along my Air Jordans circa 2005 to get re-laced and for me the clincher was not only the red leather I chose but the gold tipped ends that served as a great exclamation point. The current collection features sumptuous laces in lambskin, metallic foil, suede and the standout Rugged Camo calfskin which I tried to get my hands on, but was a little too late to the game to score. No matter, as I’m quite satisfied with how elevated my kicks look. They are currently an online brand so check them out and are a great way to give new shoes some extra kick and older ones a new spin.
