Hi Tpfers!

I have two speedys that I am not sure what to do without straps!

I got them like 10 years ago...and i have been locking up and unable to use...

did you put straps on yourself? I am not sure if it will cause the bag to deform or the color of leather not matching etc!

need your superb sense of fashion comments here!!

Thank you!

I have seen people do a quick-fix by attaching a strap on the rings by where the handles are. I honest don't like that look because it makes the bag sag in an unappealing way and also because your bags are 10+ years old the new strap and the patina handle will look weird together. If you love the style maybe invest in the Speedy Bandoulière? As for the two bags, if they have any emotional attachment then keep it, otherwise I'd just sell it.

I've seen straps be attached to the gold part of the handles, I did it once on a long day trip, but did it with a monogram strap so that the new strap didn't stand out too much.
