After much debate I’m deciding to go with the square holes where they should be. It’s very hard to find square punches especially one that small and with rounded edges but I got one on the way. Will definitely update the thread once I get it and see how it works out.
Looking forward to it.

I've already done the shoestring mod and I wore them yesterday. When I get off work today I'm going to take some pics and post them. These shoes are by far my favorite fives right behind the Raging Bulls Toro Bravo red suede fives

First and foremost s/o to 23mj88 23mj88 who was willing to let me send him my pair and do the whole customization piece just for the culture. He doesn't know I was going to tip him but we never got a chance to make it happen when USPS tried to charge me like 45 bucks to ship to CA :lol: So what does he do? Goes and makes a DYS video for me detailing what I need and sent me links to the tools. Process was easy peasy.. the only thing that gave me 'issues' were the leftover material that I needed to cut after making the holes at the top.

The exact blade he suggested worked perfectly for that too.. came out clean IMO.

Dammit I need lace locks.

23mj88 23mj88 I'm real nervous to do this myself. Tips?
1) First things first. Take an exacto knife and carefully cut the stitching on the upper to the tongue...super easy..take tweezers and pull out the excess threads


2)The link I sent him for the tool has an oval punch that fits perfectly for the top eyelets. The largest circle one fits perfect for everything else.

Line it up and press hard once and it will go all the way through. Clean up the back with an exacto knife. Once that’s all done. Use another pair of fives or pics online to do the bottom eyelet and the middle one that aren’t present on the shoe.

And boom there you go. Simple alteration and you have a pair of Nike Air Grapes. Material on these is insane by the way...

If you want them, seems like the time to buy is now. Prices are starting to creep up

Unds yesterday. 1st cleaning today. Such a dope shoe. I can't stress enough how easy it was to punch holes thru and have OG grapes. Leather is nice. It reminds me of my 06 black tongues. 3ms hopefully are just as good if not better and I'll gladly cop
