Add some color to your shoes

Women have every chance in the world to show who they are or who they want to be, through the use of make up, clothes and accessories. For men, the options are definitely more limited, especially if you are going for a more classic look. You basically have to work with what you already got.

So isn´t it strange that we so far have not taken a second look at our shoe laces?

In the spring of 2015 Ampersand Laces launched in Sweden. Behind the brand we find Daniel Olsson and Fredrik Nilsson, two childhood friends who by coincidence found out how much notice people actually pay to shoelaces when they stand out from the crowd.

”We were on our way to a bar in Stockholm one night, when I pulled a shoelace to my brand new shoes. I had to borrow another set of laces in a bright red color from Fredrik. Once at the bar people came up to us to comment on and compliment the laces. That was when we got to talking about how an every day item like shoelaces says more about us than we give it credit for, and especially how much it shows when you dare to break the conventions”, Daniel says.

”With Ampersand Laces we want men to dare to add more to their shoes. Color, Personality and Style. That was the reason that we named our brand Ampersand (&). By adding some flavor to shoes that are already beautiful, it will make them even more smashing”, Fredrik adds.
