How we got here...

Established in Chicago the summer of 2022, Lucid Laces started out as a DIY project to create custom roller skate laces on an as-needed basis solely for Angelique. At the time, this was an orange, reflective pair that could withstand the wear and tear from frequent skating. This is when she started experimenting with paracord.

According to wikipedia, "parachute cord is a lightweight, nylon, kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of parachutes" meaning it's very strong. This versatile, general purpose utility cord was used by astronauts during the 82nd Space Shuttle mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.

With limited options, lengths and colors, she set out to hand-assemble a quality pair of laces. Lucid Laces' main goal is to share our love for roller skating and give you the ability to customize your skates to best showcase your roller skate style and keep you skating.

Each pair of custom roller skate laces is meticulously measured, cut and hand-assembled to ensure a superior quality product. Lucid Laces is thrilled to stand by our brand and that we've happily strength-tested our products and will continue to do so to keep offering our best to you, with skaters in mind. We pride ourselves on the time we take to make sure each pair of laces is a reflection of our quality standards so all you have to worry about is lacing up and enjoying your next skate session.

Custom Skate Laces by Lucid Laces

Angelique

Hello there! My name is Angelique, cyber security project manager by day, owner and maker of Lucid Laces.

 

I grew up roller skating in Chicago, IL and Fleetwood Roller Rink has been my home rink. Their Tuesday night session is what brought Drella and I together at the beginning of our skate journeys. I primarily skate freestyle and JB since November 2020.

What did you love about skating when you first started?

I loved getting lost in learning the craft, drilling 'til the cows come home' and being able to express myself through moving meditation. 

 

What do you love about skating at this point in your journey?

I had no idea what was in store for me at the time but being a part of Chicago skate culture is special. Exploring different styles, locations and rinks is exciting and alluring. I was lucky enough to find a community that is so rich in skating history, here in Chicago. 

 

What would you like to accomplish?

I would like to put the Lucid Laces brand to work to help make a positive impact in the community. As of 1/2024, this is through two campaigns to raise awareness for mental health education and outreach.

 

We launched our After the Storm campaign with Hope for the Day in Feb. 2023.

We launched our Coffee, Hip Hop & Mental Health campaign in Nov. 2023.

Drella

Hello! My name is Drella and I joined Lucid Laces in September of 2022 as content and brand manager!

 

I started my skate journey in 2020 as covid hit and began skating at the skate parks. The excitement of the ramps and being welcome into this community ultimately chose my fate in realizing that skating will be incorporated in my day to day life.

 

I began rink skating in the fall of 2021 where I learned about and fell in love with JB culture. I then decided to challenge myself and skate everyday for a year which has helped me progress as a skater greatly and get involved with the skate community at a close, intimate level.

 

I am very passionate about making sure everyone around me can feel the love that I feel for my skates. I am honored to be working with Angelique and Lucid Laces! 

Roller Skate Laces that Rock!
