Reviews for Lace Up


“We have all, at some point, laced up a pair of skates, but have we ever considered what lies behind the invention of the modern skate? From a product of leisure and transportation, it has become a tool of performance and sporting excellence. Inspired by the skate collection of Jean-Marie Leduc, Lace Up takes you on an historical journey to discover the evolution of the skate over the centuries and offers an impressive gathering of photos and descriptions to satisfy the most critical historian.”—Jean R. Dupré, CEO, Speed Skating Canada (1995–2010)
