    Update: I've taken the laces from one of my pairs of summer shoes as a temporary measure. Gonna try to actually buy laces this weekend/soon-ish then.

    It's been awhile since you needed them. Is it really so hard to find them?

    Don't we all brother. That and in-between having sex and watching hockey games who's got the time to shop for shoe laces?

    there is one more place where to look for things. out in ISMAILOVO ( Metro stop Partisanskaya, dark blue line, on the plan on the right-hand side... last wagon, last door, only one exit. http://news.metro.ru/sc_lat.html. follow the lemmings out.do NOT go to - Kremlin at Ismailovo-, nothign there but tourist rip off. at the bottom there is a new part, the flea market, thean up the ramp and all around. and there are 2 ladies who have all kinds of shoe laces. though one has to look for them, they are not always at the same place.
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....
