MrBailey ‘Low Poly’ Lace-Tips

What’s the point of starting a shoe design website if you can’t shamelessly pimp out the release of your own designs?!

As you can see i’ve been working on this little project for a while now and it’s time to try and make it a reality, and it would be great to have your help to bring it to the next stage. Whether its a simple click of the like button above, a bum slap, or a purchase, i appreciate it all!

With each order you receive 4 Gun Metal Black or Gold lace-tips that come in a foam lined custom mini-shoe box, with a custom screwdriver included.

If you’re interested in owning a set of your own MrBailey ‘Low Poly’ Lace-Tips, you can order them for £25 here!

‘Low Poly’ Lace Tips  

I originally started to work on this project after receiving a pair of Yeezy 2′s, and then subsequently losing one of my metal lace-tips after the first wear! I thought the idea of having a screw on/off metal lace-tip was super innovative, but thought it could be brought forward to another level in both function, aesthetics & the level of customization (being able to use them for any pair of shoe laces). Available here.

What i’ve come up with is a sculptured lace-tip that’s a little more art than just a functional aglet, that fastens onto your shoe lace securely. Simply unscrew the screw on the Lace-Tip, slide the Lace-Tip over your shoe lace and then fasten the screw tightly with the custom screw driver to secure the Lace-Tip in place.

Design aesthetics, function & production quality are at the forefront of any product I produce and put my name too, these lace tips being no exception. From the aglet’s to the screws, the screw driver to the mini-shoe box packaging, everything has been custom designed by myself to give you the best product that I can.

With each order you’ll receive 4 ‘Low Poly’ Lace Tips w/custom screws & screw driver in either gold or gun metal black. You’ll also receive your tips in a custom mini MrBailey shoe box, lined with foam at the base to protect the lace-tips and screw driver.

Initial Concept Sketches

First Test Samples

The first samples were all 3D printed out of black ABS plastic & gold plated stainless steel to make sure everything would look great & work properly when I moved forward with the moulding process to have them produced. As you can see there is a slight pitted look to the first lace tip (something I actually don’t mind), which in production will be a lot smoother with the use of moulds. I also printed the packaging in 3D, though I have decided to make the final packaging (which will be the same design) in thick card so it has a cleaner finish, with my logo embossed into the lid, and a foam lining at the base to secure the tips, screws & screw driver.
