About us:

Residing in the suburbs of Ontario, Nick Matas, the King of Kicks Himself, and Julian Tafuro have collaborated to bring you Laces, a footwear experience like no other. Born in the suburbs of Ontario, both would frequently visit nearby Toronto, fascinated by the trendy fashion, club life, and urban culture. Infatuation quickly developed into a love for all things urban. Still residing in Maple, in was obvious that you could take the boys out of the city, but you couldn’t take the city out of the boys. Faced with a dilemma at the crossroads of their life, both had an epiphany: You can’t bring the block to the core of the urban community, but you can bring the urban community to the block. Whether you want to sell those rare kicks you’ve been holding on to, or need a fresh pair to impress, you’ve come to the right place.
