We had the good fortune of connecting with MarLan Parker and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi MarLan, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
“Imperfect action is better than inaction.” -Unknown I am unsure who said it but it resonates deep within what we do here at Get Laced. Many times, people focus too strongly on the details and they end up doing nothing as a result. Here, we believe in creating…doing…not simply saying what we are going to do, but actually doing it. Planning is key, no doubt, but we must do. Builders build!

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
The Get Laced motto is simple. Premium Sneakers Need Premium Laces! Our goal is to make your sneakers stand out. We strive to provide our customers with unique laces that will UPGRADE YOUR SNEAKERS. We are proud to state that we are just a few weeks away from being in business for one calendar year! Simply amazing! It has not been easy. We have faced many obstacles as we have designed this business from the ground up. Possessing the capital to build was one of them. The inform from my 9-5 is what funded the business initially, yet now it is fully functional and operational on its own. I want the world to know that Get Laced is here to stay! Stop standing in line to order shoes that will look just like everyone else’s. Make your sneakers stand out. We can help…..

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If you are in the city, you gotta check out DTLA and LA Live! Also, make your way to the beach!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Peace to Gary V, Todd Capital and Chris Johnson!
