Keep up the good work Iron lace!
on May 8, 2013
Stronger than steel? Maybe. Stronger than my previous laces? You betcha! I've been wearing them for two(2) months and not a single fray showing. Regular laces would have broke by now and the rugged, hikers laces would be fraying on at least one, if not both. My job is tough on boots and laces. On a side note, I wonder if the guys at the company know that steel is stronger than iron? You see, they're called IRONlace then they claim to be stronger than... nevermind.
Edit 3/9/14: One(1) year follow-up,
WOW! I'm absolutely amazed that these laces have lasted an entire year. The only issue I've had so far... the plastic tip on the end of one lace has come off. These laces have survived three(3) pairs of boots now. I bought a second set of laces a few months ago thinking I would eventually need them and I actually lost them waiting for my first set to break. I'll never put another lace in my work boots again.
I can't comment on the color fade issue other reviewers have noticed. I work outdoors in all weather conditions and mine get soaked regularly so they're pretty bad color wise. I can't tell if its staining or fade to be honest.
