Flat white shoelaces close-up-228x228
Shoelaces can be made up from different materials, and the most traditional materials used are leather, cotton, hemp, among other things. As with almost anything, there are pros and cons to each one, and it all boils down to a person’s personal preference. And over the years of my collecting shoelaces, I have grown a special fondness for leather shoelaces. Some friends of mine do not like them that much because apparently, they can get undone more easily than shoelaces made up of other raw materials. I’ve never had problems regarding this, so I pretty much ignore their rants and enjoy my leather pairs.
And one of my most favorite pairs from my collection would be my white leather shoelaces. Here are my top reasons: One, I have always loved the color white but there are times when it can be underwhelming, especially when you try to wear it on your feet. There are only very few people I know who pays much attention to footwear, unless the shoes or the shoelaces are outrageously bright or rare. So, even if I truly love the color white, I must admit that they can look boring. And for that, I found white leather shoelaces as a perfect solution.
See, leather as a material just gives off a look that illustrates the words, ‘elegant,’ or ‘fine.’ Leather just appeals to me, and to a lot of people, making white leather shoe laces a novelty – something noticeable. Even if the color white may be seen as neutral, the fact that those white shoe laces are made with leather instantly makes them more attractive and eye-catching. Another thing – I discovered that white leather shoe laces are pretty much easy to pair with anything else! The color and the material just make my white leather shoestrings a go-to pair.
Of course, we already know that the color white can go with any other color. No matter what color, pattern, print your shoes may have, white shoelaces would definitely look good on those. And what makes white leather strings such a hit is the fact that much like the color white, leather also has the ability to look good no matter what other material you wear it with. These are some of the reasons why I think white and leather just fit each other like long blouses and skinny leggings do.
There is a pain associated with being a fashionista in the corporate world! See, it’s not always the case that I can just dress up the way I would have wanted to. Since I have to wake up quite early to battle through traffic without being late for work, there is not much time for me to put a good outfit together every morning.
This is why I have a separate closet for my ‘go-to’ stuff. This closet contains the stuff that I have always relied on – stuff that has the ability to look good no matter which pieces you pair them with. And guess which of my shoelaces are up there. Yes, you guessed just right – my pair of white leather shoestrings.
Now, if you haven’t started collecting shoelaces, I suggest that you do so immediately. See, I have been around perhaps a thousand (I’m sorry for exaggerating. Ha ha) department and shoe stores, and never once have I seen a pair of shoes that came with the best pair of shoelaces they could possibly have (I apologize if there are any shoe designers out there reading this. It’s a humble opinion that I truly believe in, anyways) and so I have gotten into the habit of picking out my own pairs of shoelaces.
And now, I am extending my fascination to all of you shoe-lovers out there. As fashion savvy creatures, I urge you not to settle for the boring and dull shoelaces you get when buying new shoes. Reinvent the look of your shoes every once in while by having a collection of shoelaces you can always count on. And there is no better pair out there to describe the phrase ‘something you can always count on’ than a pair of white leather shoestrings. Trust me, get this pair and you’ll never have to run late looking like you haven’t given much thought on your OOTD.
I’m sure that after a while of using white leather laces, you’d also share my love for anything that is white and leathered. I love the look of white leather shoestrings, but I would also love to see the look going around since there are too much shoe-shoelace mismatches out there that it’s almost too painful to watch any longer. So today, I hope you at least consider getting yourself a reliable pair of white leather strings and tell your friends about it, too! Let’s get this movement going.

Extra wide neon yellow shoelaces close-up-228x228
In recent years, neon has been steadily growing as a real popular trend. Some bloggers even went as far as to declare neon as “the new black.” And true enough, neon shades are very attractive and eye-catching. However, the danger is that they could also be overwhelming at times especially when worn in large volumes. This is the reason why neon clothes, especially neon yellow pieces, are not the best of choices when it comes to formal events or night events in general. Neon can be worn in large volumes in the daylight, but definitely not in the office setting especially if you are required to dress smart-casual or formal on your workplace.
These limitations sure give headaches to those who have fallen head over heels with the neon phenomenon. And so to help you out, let me give you this teeny tip: never for one second think that the only way to sport neon shades is through the bigger chunks of your outfit such as tops, pants, and shoes. As a matter of fact, it is most advisable to wear them in smaller amounts especially if the setting and time of your event is not conducive for overwhelming neon shades. We suggest that you wear these lovely neon shades in your accessories, such as in your shoelaces. That’s right – neon shoelaces could be your sneaky way to still don neon in the most subtle, and yet still classy way.
And one of the best variants we have at Feetunique is our offering of neon yellow shoe laces. (We have shoestrings in various lengths, widths, and designs in order to accommodate different preferences and needs.) See, neon yellow shoelaces are very bright and eye-catching, so even if it is the only neon piece in your whole outfit, you can be sure that they would stand out and be noticeable. You just have to be careful because neon yellow shoestrings don’t just go well with any other colour. Usually, neon colours look fashionable with dark accents, so if you want to get your own pair of neon yellow shoelaces, make sure you wear them with dark-coloured shoes – black ones, preferably.
See, what Feetunique brings to the table is the ability to wear your favourite colour (May it be neon yellow or whatnot) every day. Because unfortunately, we cannot do so with our clothes; even if you love the colour neon yellow very much, it would eventually be very boring if you wear neon yellow shirts or pants every day! However, with shoelaces, you can wear your favourite neon yellow strings everyday with different outfits and no one would ever get tired of them!
This is the beauty of investing in shoelaces. You can reinvent your look over and over again even if you own just a pair of two of good shoes. Just as long as your pair of shoes is not yet worn out, all you have to do is to get new pairs of shoelaces and they would look new again. Also, as mentioned earlier, shoelaces are such small parts of our whole outfits, so it can be very fun to experiment with them.
For instance, you can get away with wearing a single colour for your top, pants, and shoes, just as long as you have a different one with your shoelaces. If you have to wear a black top with black jeans and black shoes, all you have to do is wear your pair of neon yellow shoe laces and you would definitely get a trendy look that is unique and noticeable.
This is another beauty of shopping for shoelaces: it is much more affordable than shopping for shoes. Sure, wouldn’t we all want to have a room full of different types of shoes for all kinds of occasion? However, that would be very impractical. Our advice is to have at least one pair of formal, a pair of casual, and a pair of sporty shoes.
After acquiring those, just have go splurging on shoelaces so you can reinvent those pairs a thousand times over. If you ever do so, make sure you at least consider getting a pair of our neon yellow shoelaces. Not only are they gorgeous and sturdy, but they can literally brighten up your outfits if you ever find yourself in the unfortunate situation of being compelled to wear boring outfits for work or any other inevitable purpose you may encounter.
Whether you not you believe that ‘neon is the new black,’ you would surely still enjoy sporting out a pair of our neon yellow laces in the gym or when out with friends. Simply check out this collection of yellow and neon yellow shoelaces so you can take a look at our selection of yellow and neon yellow shoelaces. Have fun and enjoy shopping!

Flat black shoelaces close-up-228x228
Have you ever gone shoe shopping but ended up being frustrated upon finding a perfect pair of shoes but with very awful shoelaces? Or have you ever seen someone wearing the coolest outfit ever, save for their shoelaces? Then you share my exasperation about the current state of the fashion world. True enough; the industry seems to be paying as little attention as possible when it comes to shoelaces.
It’s as if the fashion experts already expect everyone to know which shoelaces to wear for which shoes. However, that clearly is not the case. Very few people have extensive knowledge when it comes to shoelace fashion, so today I will try to spread some information around in the hope to shed some light in the mechanics of shoelace-wearing.
Disclaimer: I am not in any way claiming that I am a fashion expert. Let’s just say that I am someone very observant, so I have a few insights on how shoelaces should be worn. And so far, family and friends have commended the combinations I have come up with. So, I hope you read on to the end of this blog post! I assure you, you’d be learning even a bit!
So, the first thing you need to know is that shoelaces are not all the same. Sadly, some of the people I’ve talked to seemed to think that shoelaces only differ from each other in color or patterns. This is wrong. Shoelaces also come in various shapes, lengths, and widths! When it comes to shapes, the most common ones are round laces, flat laces, and even oval ones.
And for all intents and purposes, I want to zoom in on flat laces because aside from the fact that they are my favorite, they are also the most common ones so it would be a good option for those who are just starting to experiment on shoes and shoelaces.
See, shoe laces that are flat are usually worn with casual shoes, but trust me, they can make just about any pair of shoes look more elegant and sleek. So, if you are unsure of the specific pair of shoelaces you would need, my recommendation is that you check out the flat laces section. As you go along, you must also experiment with round and oval ones, but for now, stick with good old fashioned shoe laces that are flat.
So, now that you have decided the shape (or rather, I imposed it, hehe) of the shoelaces you are about to get, the next consideration you should keep in mind would be the length of your flat laces. Yes, even the length of the laces is very important to make sure that you achieve the look you are going for! Note that typically, there are 5 holes on each side of your shoes. If this is the case, then you could get the standard length of shoelaces.
However, if what you have are classic shoes that ideally have fewer holes, then you should get shorter shoe laces that are flat. If, however, what you have is a pair of boots or any other kind of high cut shoes that have more holes than the standard, then you should opt for shoelaces that are flat but also longer than the standard. These reminders are way too important to overlook, because if you happen to wear shoelaces that are way too short or way too long, no matter if the color or pattern is perfect, it will still look wrong and out of place, remember that.
Since we already mentioned colors and patterns, it would also be important to take note of these. Remember that if you are fond of printed or pattened shoe laces, then it is all the more reason to get flat laces. See, prints and patterns would be highlighted and given an opportunity to be noticed so you should sport them in these awesome shoe laces that are flat in shape!
But remember that patterned shoelaces should not be worn at all times. When the event is formal, refrains from wearing those since simple and solid colors look way more professional and would project more sophistication and maturity to other people.
Finally, do not forget about color combination. If you have shoes that are neutral in color such as black or white ones, then you should have no problem since almost all other colors look good in those, but if you have other colors such as yellow or blue in your shoes, you have to be careful because not all colors would look good together with those! Make sure you follow the basic concept of contrast of colors, but in the end, the best recommendation would still be to try out a couple of various shoelaces styles and colors to find out which ones you’d prefer the most.

Round black shoelaces close-up-500x500
As a shoelace fanatic, I have witnessed how drastically the market for shoelaces has changed over the years. A few years ago, when I had just started collecting shoelaces, it was really difficult to locate stores that offer a wide collection of shoelaces. More often than not, I had no choice but to shop online and have it shipped, which could get really expensive at the time!
Fortunately, though, the times have changed and today, it is very apparent that people are in general more interested in shoelaces, so the supply for it has also expanded. There are a lot of web shops offering various shoelaces; even department stores have sections for shoelaces now!
What is my point here? Well, I just want to point out that this opportunity to have your own shoelace collection should not be taken lightly! I urge you to be more attentive in the pairs of shoelaces you wear, instead of just sticking with the pair of laces you get when you buy a new pair of shoes. Have your own shoelace collection, and note that there is no better pair to start your collection with other than the old reliable black round shoelaces.
A good pair of black round shoelaces should be good for whatever shoe type you have, which is exactly why it is a good choice to start your collection with. Black is an elegant color that blends perfectly with any other color, so you never have to encounter problems in terms of color blending if you do get black round shoelaces. Even if you have printed or patterned shoes, plain black would still do the trick of looking gorgeous against those! However, color is not the only consideration to take into account when getting a new pair of shoelaces.
You also have to consider the shape, as manifested in my recommendation: black round shoelaces, not simply black shoelaces. Perhaps it is the color that gives attitude and finish to your laces, but essentially, it would still be the shape that gives the look and distinction. I love round shoelaces because I found out that they are the ideal ones to wear together with dress shoes that I am so fond of. This is because round shoelaces are generally elegant and sophisticated-looking.
Other shoelace shapes are flat and oval, among others. Flat shoelaces are used with sneakers usually, while oval shoelaces are partnered with athletic shoes mostly. Out of all these shoe types, classic dress shoes are what make for most of my shoe collection, which is also probably why rounded shoelaces, specifically black round shoelaces, are my favorite.
As a matter of fact, I have more than one pair of black round shoelaces in my collection. They are of different lengths, to match different pairs of my shoes. See, when you purchase shoelaces online, more often than not, you will be made to choose between different lengths available. You have to be very careful when choosing, because you just might lose the elegance of your black round shoelaces by getting them in the wrong length!
Remember that each shoe type has a specific shoelace length ideal for it. Patent shoes, dress shoes, and other small shoes that have few holes obviously need shorter laces, while longer shoes such as boots which have more holes would need longer laces! However, if you are one of those fond of creative ways to tie up shoelaces, you must get longer shoelaces no matter what, because you need more space and thread to express your creativity by playing around the shoelaces you have.
So if you want to begin your shoelace collection so you could wear a “unique” pair of shoelaces every time you go out, I suggest you do so in fashion and get yourself a pair of black round shoelaces for starters. Of course there are a lot of pretty shoelaces out there and you might just get tempted to go for those decorative ones first, and there is nothing wrong with that. Just make sure that your shoelace collection is not all aesthetics and colors. Make sure you have at least one pair of black and white shoelaces, so you have ready shoelaces for your formal and professional affairs.
A good pair of black round shoelaces is all you need to jumpstart your collection and I highly suggest that you get your pair here. Feetunique has always been a trusted brand when it comes to high quality shoelaces, so you never have to worry about shoelaces that get worn out easily if you go with this brand. They also offer a wide collection of shoelaces in various colors, prints, patterns, widths, lengths, and shapes! You just got to pick the pair that suits you, pay affordably for it, and have it delivered right at your door!

Thin round waxed yellow shoelaces close-up-500x500
I fondly remember a creative writing exercise I had to do in college. The instructions were that we should write a story based on a mundane object – something used every day that we no longer stop to think if such thing is a necessity or just a luxury. As for me, I chose shoelaces. So naturally, I had to do preliminary research on the history of shoelaces, its different types, and what makes it a necessity.
Frankly, I was surprised. To tell you honestly, the story I was able to write was really bad, so I’d rather not share it with you. (Ha ha) However, from my research, I was in a bit of awe because of all the things I learned about shoelaces – things I never knew existed. These are the things that I’d rather share with you today.
First, I realized that I was actually unaware of the fact that shoelaces come in different shapes! Sure, upon closer inspection of my shoes, I recognized that I actually have quite a number of shoelaces and they all have unique shapes. Well, I guess I just took them for granted because back then, I didn’t shop for shoelaces.
I simply shopped for shoes, and stuck with whatever pair of shoelaces they have when I first buy them. I am more meticulous now, though. I have been, ever since I found out that there are flat shoelaces, round shoelaces, fat shoelaces, and even oval ones!
If you are already familiar with this information before, I am sure that like me, you also have your favorite shoelace shape! For me, it would be the round shoelaces, because I think they look lovely and classy even though they are actually harder to tie up as compared to flat shoelaces.
I guess your preference in terms of shoelace shapes is also affected by the type of shoes you prefer! See, I love round shoelaces because I have a lot of dress shoes, which just look awful with all the other shoelace shapes except round shoe laces.
As for flat shoelaces, they look awfully nice with sneakers and casual shoes. They are also easily tied and they stay tied for a longer time – maybe because there is more friction between two flat surfaces as compared to two round ones, which are present in round shoelaces.
On the other hand, we also have oval shoelaces that look good with gym and other sports shoes! I also learned in my research that there is what we call friction laces, which is very popular with triathletes.
Apparently, with friction laces, you can preset the tension in the laces so that when you wear them, you no longer have to tie them up – they would wind to the perfect length as you have preset them! However, these could get expensive, and since I do not work out a lot aside from biking, I’d rather stick with my round shoelaces that could be tied up in the traditional manner.
And speaking of traditional ways of tying up shoelaces, yes, I also learned that there are actually lots of ways to tie up shoelaces, and these different ways also look different relative to the shape of your shoelaces. For instance, my favorite round shoe laces look extra nice when tied up in the straight line manner as compared to the crisscross tie. Flat shoelaces, however, favor the crisscross effect.
However, in recent years, different creative ways of tying up shoelaces have fast become a trend, so you might want you try those as well especially if you are a fan of flat shoelaces that are patterned, printed, or gradient. These are the creative type of laces, and they actually look really good with these creative ways to tie them up.
There are tons of websites and Youtube links that could teach you how to recreate these different styles, and you should really try them out to spice up the look of your shoelaces! They do not look good on round shoelaces though, so refrain from straying far from traditional knots when using round shoe laces. Remember that this shape is the embodiment of elegance, sophistication, and formality, so do not taint it!
Well, it seems that I have been going in and on for quite a while now, but rest assured that this is only a little portion of what I learned about shoelaces in that fateful creative writing homework. Maybe next time, I would talk about the different classifications of shoelaces like color, patterns, prints, etc.
But for now, let me end by saying that if you ever have shoelaces that need replacement or anything, you should at least try getting yourself a pair of round shoelaces – I’m sure you’d also love wearing them together with dress and classy shoes!

Round brown and yellow shoelaces close-up-228x228
The problem with being an athlete is that most of the time, you have to choose between the sporty look and the fashionable look, which could really be annoying if you want to be both! I mean, there are a lot of athletic clothes and shoes that look good, but shoelaces tell a very different story. are best for sports activities especially the triathlon, but most of the thick round shoestrings I see at the mall are either in black or in white… How boring could you get, right?
I guess for us to come to the root of the problem, we have to factor in the issue of shoelace stereotyping. Since thick round laces are usually associated with the sporty look, they don’t usually make it in fashionable looks or whatnot. So to solve this problem, we have to stop thinking that just because thick round laces look good with sports outfits; it means that you can only use them for that purpose. Believe me; a lot of your fashion shoes would look way better if you ditch the classic thin shoelaces for a new pair of thick round shoestrings.
Once you realize that thick round laces are actually not exclusively ideal for the sporty look, you begin to wonder why you don’t see a lot of fashionable designs. Well, if you look at department stores and sporty stores, chances are you are not going to have a field day looking at pretty laces; no, sir. This is because the fashion industry has been neglecting shoelaces for decades.
Fortunately for us modern fashionistas, though, more and more companies and even individuals have begun to discover how much an outfit can be improved just by complementing it with a new pair of shoelaces, may it be thick round shoestrings, flat ones, or even oval laces. In this age of online shopping and free shipping options, even we sporty chicks cannot be excused for committing fashion crime.
But hey, I know that you probably haven’t given much thought to your shoelaces because well, they come free with the shoes you buy, right? So okay, let us take some time discussing the rules on shoelace fashion:
1. It’s a color game – As with anything else in the world of fashion, you can make or break your look by choosing a specific color. As we have previously discussed, thick round laces could help you with any look – may it be formal, sporty, casual, or all-out fab. However, you have to be very careful with your colors.
Earth and neutral tones such as black, white, brown, and dark blue will always be your go-to palette for formal events such as job interviews and business meetings. For the sporty look, you can always play with neon shades since these could help you fare better as they are easy to be seen even at low light! For casual events, you can choose whatever color you want, as long as it goes with the rest of your outfit!
2. Contrary to popular opinion, size does matter – The length and width of your thick round shoestrings could add or subtract fashionista points to your overall look, remember that! Let’s talk about length first – this is pretty easy to comprehend. Shoelaces that are either too short or too long are no good – find the perfect length. The perfect length would be based on the number of eyelets (holes) your shoes have. Websites that sell shoelaces usually have this option – to choose your shoelace length based on the number of eyelets your shoes have.
Width is trickier. But here is a simple guide: the narrower your shoelaces are the more elegant and formal they look. So only wear extra wide shoelaces when casually hanging out – they do not look good with patent or leather shoes!
3. Go for polyester – Especially for athletes like me, you are going to want to invest in high quality thick round laces. Go for those that are made from the finest and most durable raw materials such as polyester! Check with your supplier to see if they actually use the raw materials you are in fact paying for, alongside the actual labor put in creating your pair of shoelaces.
So there you have it! Now you really have no excuse to wear less than the prettiest pair of thick round shoestrings just because you are donning the athletic look for the day! Just remember the tips mentioned above and you never have to choose between being fashionable and being sporty. Just make sure to make the right investments that would surely go a long way. I do hope you soon try out how a thick round lace could actually give you a whole new look even though you are actually wearing a pair of old shoes that you’ve probably forgotten about by now. :)

Thin Round Shoelaces
Preparing for a run is no easy task. Even those who have already finished a couple of marathons should not take the preparations lightly. But the thing is, most runners, especially the first-timers, focus on getting physically fit for the run, but some tend to forget other things to prepare such as the shoes to wear on the day of the run. Sometimes these things are done in haste, but I personally believe that preparing what to wear and what to bring for the run is equally important as preparing your physique to finish your marathon.
Okay, given that you already have your shoes for the run. My next question will be this: do you already have your round athletic shoelaces? Well, if that question caught you off guard, you might be less prepared than you think you are for this upcoming run of yours. I suggest you stop that workout for a while, put that protein shake down, and read on as quite frankly; this blog post may just be what you need to beat your personal record on marathons (a bit of exaggeration, but you see my point.) Well let me just start this with answering the question on your mind right now: what in the world are round athletic shoelaces? And why in the world would I need it for my marathon?
First and foremost, ‘round athletic shoelaces ‘are one among many types of shoelaces there are in the market. And in my opinion, every athlete and even every amateur runner should have at least one pair of these reserved for such athletic events. This is because from the name itself, these round athletic shoe strings are specifically designed to fit the lifestyle of athletes that are truly different from those who are not so active physically.
Imagine you’re in the middle of your run. Your legs are feeling the strain, but you feel that the momentum you have right now is enough to take you down the final stretch. All in all, you are feeling good about this run, when all of a sudden; you trip over one of your shoelaces. You don’t want to stop running but that would mean risking life and limb later on because undone shoelaces could even mean your life (no kidding this time!) So you bend down to tie up your unruly shoelaces, and when you look up again to pick up on your run, you suddenly feel dizzy and all the momentum’s gone.
This is in actuality how it feels when you have to stop for anything just when you’re feeling the momentum. And it is exactly what could possibly happen if you do not gear up with a pair of round athletic shoelaces for your run! See, this is what I was talking about when I said that these seemingly small considerations could actually cost you your whole successful run! And if you do not want those mentioned above to happen to you, I suggest you really invest in; yes you know it – round athletic shoelaces. After all, these are not that expensive if you know where to look!

Round neon orange shoelaces close-up-228x228
The thing with shoelaces is that not all people are particularly careful with the kind of shoelaces they wear. This is because when you shop for shoes and you buy a pair, you also get a default pair of shoelaces. But while these “default” shoelaces usually look nice and neat, I could guarantee that somewhere, there is a pair of shoelaces more suited to that specific pair of shoes. Now, as buyers, it becomes our responsibility to take on the “quest” to find a better, and if possible, the perfect pair of shoelaces for whatever pair of shoes we just bought!
Now, not all shoe owners take on this so-called quest, and they simply stick with the default shoelaces, may those be round laces, oval, or flat ones. However, I really believe that we should all make the extra effort to search for better-suited laces not just in terms of color, print, or pattern, but even in terms of shape, size, and length! Actually, I think, these features are the more important things to look for when shopping for shoelaces. So, if you have never been to the habit of buying shoelaces separate from shoes, let this blog post help you out!
Well first of all, you need to know what type of shoes you need shoelaces for. This is because certain shapes and sizes are simply ideal for specific shoe types. For instance, dress shoes seem to be the most gorgeous when you wear round laces with them. However, if what you have are casual or even sports shoes, round shoe strings may not be the best bet for you!
Casual shoes look better with flat shoelaces, while sports shoes are most commonly and rightfully worn with oval shoelaces. One should be observant of these things not only for the sake of appearance but also for function. For example: one of the main reasons why sports shoes are ideal with oval laces instead of round shoe strings is because oval shoelaces are easier tied and stays tied for longer periods of time – exactly what athletes require for their athletic needs.
Personally, I have a lot of round laces in my collection, because my favorite type of shoes is dress shoes. This is because I’m not that into high heels, so whenever I have to wear dresses or cocktails, I opt to wear dress shoes with them. I think these are more comfortable and suitable for me than heeled shoes.
This type of shoes is not particularly popular, so for those of you girls who are also tired of high heels and stilettos, you should try and get dress shoes, and get the matching round shoe strings for those! However, as mentioned before, shape is not the only important thing when it comes to choosing your new shoelaces! You also have to consider the length of your round laces, if you are really considering getting a pair of those elegant and sophisticated shoelaces for your new dress shoes.
Now, to find the perfect length of shoelaces needed for the shoes you have, what you have to consider is the number of holes (eyelets) that your shoes have! See, the more classic shoes such as dress shoes and the like have lesser holes and so you would need shorter round shoe strings for those because if you get shoelaces that are too long, then the elegance of your dress shoes would be no longer apparent because shoelaces that are too long also look too shabby and worn-out even when they are brand new.
Casual shoes such as sneakers and sports shoes normally have the standard number of eyelets, so you would also want the standard length of shoelaces to go with them. As for boots and high-cut shoes, those are the type of shoes that have the most holes, meaning they could hold even the longest shoelaces you could get your hands on. It’s easy in this day and age to find the perfect length of shoelaces because web shops often indicate the length of the shoelaces in their collection, anyway. Make sure you just pick the right length because it could be hard to get your laces replaced once they have already been delivered.
So there, I hope by this blog post, we have extended our help so that the next time you shop for shoelaces, you already know what exactly you are looking for. Remember, consider getting dress shoes as an alternative for heels and stilettos, and if you do get a pair of dress shoes, make sure you also get a matching pair of round laces! I will leave considerations such as colors, patterns, and prints to your creative minds – I am sure that you already know how to mix and match these things, so good luck!

Round brown and yellow shoelaces close-up-228x228
Preparing for a run is no easy task. Even those who have already finished a couple of marathons should not take the preparations lightly. But the thing is, most runners, especially the first-timers, focus on getting physically fit for the run, but some tend to forget other things to prepare such as the shoes to wear on the day of the run. Sometimes these things are done in haste, but I personally believe that preparing what to wear and what to bring for the run is equally important as preparing your physique to finish your marathon.
Okay, given that you already have your shoes for the run. My next question will be this: do you already have your round athletic shoelaces? Well, if that question caught you off guard, you might be less prepared than you think you are for this upcoming run of yours. I suggest you stop that workout for a while, put that protein shake down, and read on as quite frankly; this blog post may just be what you need to beat your personal record on marathons (a bit of exaggeration, but you see my point.) Well let me just start this with answering the question on your mind right now: what in the world are round athletic shoelaces? And why in the world would I need it for my marathon?
First and foremost, ‘round athletic shoelaces ‘are one among many types of shoelaces there are in the market. And in my opinion, every athlete and even every amateur runner should have at least one pair of these reserved for such athletic events. This is because from the name itself, these round athletic shoe strings are specifically designed to fit the lifestyle of athletes that are truly different from those who are not so active physically.
Imagine you’re in the middle of your run. Your legs are feeling the strain, but you feel that the momentum you have right now is enough to take you down the final stretch. All in all, you are feeling good about this run, when all of a sudden; you trip over one of your shoelaces. You don’t want to stop running but that would mean risking life and limb later on because undone shoelaces could even mean your life (no kidding this time!) So you bend down to tie up your unruly shoelaces, and when you look up again to pick up on your run, you suddenly feel dizzy and all the momentum’s gone.
This is in actuality how it feels when you have to stop for anything just when you’re feeling the momentum. And it is exactly what could possibly happen if you do not gear up with a pair of round athletic shoelaces for your run! See, this is what I was talking about when I said that these seemingly small considerations could actually cost you your whole successful run! And if you do not want those mentioned above to happen to you, I suggest you really invest in; yes you know it – round athletic shoelaces. After all, these are not that expensive if you know where to look!
