Waxed, Round Laces for Dress Shoes - 4-5 eyelets
on November 4, 2014
32" inches long for 4-5 eyelets shoes. Round laces so they are less likely to get caught in round eyelets. The wax finish apparently serves 2 purposes -- the wax keeps the knot from loosening, and lubricates movement through the eyelets.
In my experience, shoe laces will last longer (expecially if not waxed) by pulling AWAY (like wings) if you tighten the fit before tying -- rather than pulling the laces together (like in upright motion). The metal rings on the upper 2 rows of eyelets will abrase the laces and over time will shear off the outer strands of laces that are unwaxed.
