Shoelaces Buying Tips

If you have been frustrated by a broken shoelace unexpectedly then you
have actually discovered that replacing shoelaces can be a bit hard. The
shoe laces already available in the market are of different lengths,
styles, colors and made of various types of materials. This has even
made it much difficult to identify the right shoelace
one should buy. There different shoelace styles i.e. round or flat as
well as different shoelace materials i.e. leather or cotton including
diverse characteristics or various types of shoes. As a buyer, it is of
essence to keep these in mind to help you identify the best one.


Most people consider shoelaces as collection of strings but there are
some laces whose construction is very complicated. Cotton is the widely
used material in constructing shoelaces but some laces have many thick
strands of materials that make them strong and last longer. A number of
shoelaces are also made of natural fibers for example, hemp or jute.
They are cheap and durable too. Natural fiber is advantageous because
the fibers hold each other tightly making the shoelaces to stay tied
until they wear.

Buying leather shoelaces is a great idea because they are durable but
their construction isn’t great and may not stay long when tied. They
are very smooth and may slip easily when tied but if leather as well as
Kevlar or other specialty materials are used, then the shoelaces can be
suitable for shoes or boots that require stronger laces.

There are many people who prefer shoelaces manufactured from
synthetic materials because they are shinier, attractive, smoother and
most importantly much stronger as compared to those made from natural
fiber. The only problem is that these shoelaces can easily slip due to
their slick nature that will force you to retie them constantly. The elastic shoe laces
are mostly used to tie children’s shoes because they aren’t tied
closely to the shoe and they are colorful. The common types of these
shoelaces are curly and Y-ties.


To identify the shoelace style, you need to know its cross-section.
The most common shapes are round cross-section and flat cross-section. A
number of them also have square cross-section. The shoelaces with
square cross-section are not appropriate because they easily slip when
tied. The flat shoelaces are very common on athletic as well as casual
shoes. Unlike other shoelaces, they are comfortable when tied and stay
tied longer. Round shoelaces appear fancy compared to flat shoelaces.
They are mostly common on athletic shoes, dress shoes and work boots.
They will tie the shoe well but will not last longer as flat shoes.
Plus, they are less comfortable.

Length and Color

It can be frustrating if you purchased shoelaces that are too short
to tie your shoes well or very long and dragging on the ground when
tied. To get the accurate length, you will need to have your broken
shoelace and measure if it matches the one you are buying. You can then
adjust the length so that you buy the right shoelace. You can choose any
color that you desire provided it matches well with your shoes. You
have a wide variety of decorative or colorful shoelaces you can choose
