Fortnightly Fitness Fridays - Pink laces give away

Did you have any coloured shoelaces as a child?

I had purple ones when I was about 8 years old (in 1991 or so), which came threaded through black and purple running shoes. I loved the shoes because of the laces, and used to enjoy wearing them with assorted purple clothing. Black bike shorts and a purple t-shirt. A pair of purple dungarees / overalls that I wore to bits. Even, I regret to say, with a short purple skirt worn over white leggings. The joys of fashion in the late 80s and early 90s!

I no longer wear dungarees or purple skirts over white leggings, but I do still appreciate coloured shoelaces. And as of this week, I'm very pleased to have some pink ones, complements of my Sweat Pink Ambassador pack arriving.

I am still deliberating over which of my shoes should have pink laces, but it's an enjoyable kind of deliberation.

From left to right: My Brooks 'real' running shoes, old New Balance cross-trainers that I wear for gardening and trips to the park, and some Reeboks that I wear casually

At heart, it would seem that I'm still an 8-year-old but that pink is my new purple.

Given that I don't have shoes enough for all of these laces, and sharing is generally more fun that not sharing, I would like to give away 8 pairs of pink shoe laces to any fellow Australians who would like them. If there are more than 8 people I'll pick at random. Just leave a comment if you are interested!

As for me, I'll be admiring my shoes.

What about you - do you have any multi-coloured laces? Or any in the past?


  1. No laces needed :) Love the giveaway Kari! :) Hope you have a great day :)

    1. Thanks Brandi - trust you're still enjoying your own laces :)

  2. I don't have any need for these so you can leave me out (though I am sure that sylvia would love some). But I can't resist remembering my trendy older sister wearing shoelaces around her neck - I think that was in the 80s - she has never lived it down. I think I had some coloured laces for doc martins in the 1990s but I can't remember what was on them - I remember a friend buying me some from the UK so maybe they have union jacks on them - I quick fancy the idea of tartan laces so maybe I also had some of these

    1. Oh how funny - and something I can imagine as being trendy in the 80s (that decade has a lot to answer for!). I remember wanting doc martins with coloured laces as a teenager, but I never managed to progress to owning the shoes never mind the laces. Tartan would be a good match for those.

  3. When I was a teenager a craze came in where everyone was wearing brightly coloured laces. These pink laces sure would dress up my running shoes xx

    1. It's funny how those crazes come and go - and then repeat themselves eventually it seems. You may hear further from me about some laces making it over to you :)

  4. I love the way the laces look with the shoes!

  5. I have these and love them. Posted a pic of my SweatPink laces on my blog today.

  6. Yay to pink laces!
    I put mine in my shoes this weekend for a kick butt workout! :)
    Sweat pink!!

    1. It does add a bit of spark to things, that is for sure :)

  7. I've never had pink laces! They're really cute. :)
