LaceSpace x BespokeIND - 'French Vanilla' Air Force 1s for French Montana

LaceSpace has been blessed in having been involved in some awesome collabs with Melbourne sneaker ateliers BespokeIND, including for Drake, A$AP Ferg, Nike x Supply x Virgil Abloh and now French Montana.

Below is a sneak peak at a fully custom built pair of Air Force 1s by BespokeIND and LaceSpace to commemorate the success of the French Montana joint venture with P Diddy and Ciroc Vodka, the 'French Vanilla', with a second pair being gifted for French Montana's younger brother Ayoub.

This pair of Air Force 1s is toned down and refined compared to the usual bright colour blocking that BespokeIND pride themselves on. The shoes feature LaceSpace luxury lambskin leather laces in white with gold aglets, as well as custom engraved dubraes in gold and silver, reading "FRENCH VANILLA" and "COKE BOYZ". On the shoes we see Vintage Japanese Kimono & Obi silks, Moroccan Djellaba fabrics & the finest leathers & suedes. As always, our focus is always on premium quality - and these are the definition of quality. The pair was topped off with a Lyx Leather bag to add that extra touch of class.

If you're after some personalisation try grabbing a pair of customised dubraes or lambskin leather laces - leather is particularly suited for Air Force 1s and Air Jordan 1s - don't settle for stock!

Most Common Questions

Ultra Boost laces length?

We recommend Medium (43 Inch) laces for Ultraboosts, as this matches the stock lace length. However, for those looking for a smaller bow or to wear untied, Small (36 Inch) would be an ideal option. You can find both these lengths across our most popular styles in our Ultraboost collection

NMD laces length?

The adidas NMD is notorious for having laces which are way too long. We suggest our Small (36 Inch) laces for the best fit, which when threaded loosely will give you a nicely sized bow without all the dangle and mess of the stock laces. You can find NMD laces here in our NMD collection

Most popular Ultra Boost laces?

The best thing about ultraboosts is that they are versatile and look great with both rope laces, and flat laces. We suggest keeping to the lightweight, tech-vibe by using regular aglets. Our favourite laces for ultraboosts are the black/3M flat lacesin Medium (43 Inch).

 

This sizing chart is a guide only and is flexible depending on how you thread your laces. For those you enjoy tight threading, our recommended "untied" versions may be appropriate for tying. For those who enjoy particularly loose threading, a larger length may be more appropriate. It will also depend on the size of the shoe (for example some smaller Ultraboosts would be recommended as 36 inch, but larger ones as 45")

The best way to check a rough appropriate length is to measure the current laces in your shoes.
