Shoe lace cover, IronMan design by DrewPetitclerc Nov 6, 2011

Featured Thing!

Description

For many decades I've had trouble getting interesting shoe designs, my size is not common and I got tired of being told no or we have these in white or black only, so when I found you can design your own on the internet I became a "sneaker head", I have multiple custom designs and one of them are my IMMK4 "Iron Man Mark 4" red and yellow Reebok's. I needed to complete the look so I designed flexible plates to cover the laces so when I walk the conventions people will stop asking if I beat up "Ronald McDonald" and stole his shoes (this is my personal joke to those few people I come across that still do not know who "Iron Man" is and I feel bad for them and so make a joke to make them feel better) no one has ever actually said the R.M. joke to me.

Where are those shoe design sites, please? I too have very broad feet...

Thank you, I'm thinking of altering the design further to more"wrap" them around the shoes.

Thank you, no one has aver commented on my shoes being clown shoes, that was a joke I made to those few people I've encountered that say they know nothing of "Iron Man" and so I quipped to them this observation to give them a laugh to cover their embarrassment.

I'm sorry that I may have been misleading to not say that in my original posting I have corrected it.

But thank you again for not being mean.

Instructions

I printed the individual parts by pausing and changing colors, the plates interlock and the hooks and stays are bonded to the underside to match lace locations and tongue opening widths, scale these to fit lace diameters.

Im really sorry when I say this, and I think its awesome that you used 3D printing to make the shoes better for you, but they still look like Ronald McDonald shoes. Im not being mean, just honest people will probably still say that to you.
