So it’s over… after 16 days of Olympic hype and a closing ceremony that seemed to be created by associating acts with the first words that came into the producers head, hence ‘Fatboy Slim/octopus, and Annie Lennox/Viking boat’, many of us have been left with an Olympic shape hole in our lives.
However, fear not!
For those of us who did not manage to get their hands on any precious metal this time round, online retailer Mr. Kennedy has devised a way in which even us humble trainer lovers can get our hands on silver and gold!
Mr. Kennedy offers up the perfect Olympic worthy accessory: 24-carat gold shoelaces that retail for an eye- watering $19,000. Crafted using “ancient, artisan jewellery techniques.” The latter clearly justifying the price tag…
For those of us on a budget there is also a silver alternative which is available at for a snip at just $3000
When you purchase a pair, expect them to be delivered “by security and laced for you anywhere in the world.” – True value for money that!
If these happen to be just out of your price range there are always these Gold Mr. Lacy laces for a fraction of the price at £2.99 a pair.
They were even worn by the actual torch bearers during the Opening Ceremony Last Month! Available online at surfdome.com (International lacing services not included).
