Boots

My Reebok Pro Rage's. And Nike Vapor SL's. I cut lace holes and changed the laces on the Reeboks to give them a more snug fit. I removed the Vapor lace cover, cut off the lace loops, and cut new lace holes. I never was one for lace covers. I love the way my Vapors look now.

It took about four hours total. I had to cut the threads in between the lace cover and boot that held the lace cover on. Then i had to pull out all of the individual threads still left in the holes in the boots. Then i had to scrape off the glue residue that was left on the boot from the lace cover. Then I cut the 4 lace loops out from the inside of each boot, and I then cut 6 new lace holes in each boot. They are MUCH easier to get on and off now. I love it.

I used a utility blade like this. I just held it and carefully cut small rectangle shapes instead of circular holes. They work just the same.

i removed my lace cover the exact same way as you, but i never thought about cutting new holes for the laces, that is a very good idea though i might look into that, even though my superflys are on there way now.

and i know what you mean they are so much easier to put on and fit far better now down they.
