Bought these shoe laces to replace the ones that came with my boots. Those were great; these not so much. These are good for the money, but if you are looking for great laces, these are not them. Mostly, what I do not care for is that these are very stretchy, thinner, and have a wax coating (unpleasant feel). They untie more than the flat, wide ones I had.
I like these laces, but I need like three to four a year because they break on the metal rungs of my expensive hiking boots. You should always have a backup handy in the apt. and in your pack if you are on the trail. I would recommend to a friend and the price is reasonable, but I would suggest buying two pairs at a time for backups.
