However, it ended up that the shoes I wanted to use them in had lace holes too small to get the metal tip through and so I have decided to go with the regular, non-metal tipped laces.
I posted a pic so people could see them and get an idea of how big the tips are compared to a wooden matchstick.
A regular matchstick and a regular toothpick have no problem going through the eyelets of my shoes but these metal tips are about double the size of a toothpick in my estimation.
These are decent priced quality laces that did arrive in a timely manner, the tips were just too big for the shoes I wanted to use them in, and probably most dress shoes.
I advised the manufacturer/seller (at that time, the Feet People) of the snafu and waited for their adjustment response. One week passed, then another week. Soon, over a month went by, and still no response.
I filed a claim through Amazon's A-to-z Guarantee Program and had my full product and shipping refund in less than a week.
Kudos to Amazon. They stand behind their program, and truly make shopping risk free.
The laces I received have metal tips all right, but they're CHROME! Ugly, ugly, ugly. Especially on brown laces where the tip is in such stark contrast to the lace.
They do seem well-made and otherwise are as described but these laces were intended for the shoes I wear to work, and the chrome tips would just look too silly/informal so they're pretty much useless to me.
- the tips are big and may require some serious pushing to get them through the eyelets (which I don't mind, since it helps keep the shoes laced if they become untied)
- the tips are chrome, not lace-colored as depicted
- one of the tips popped off within a day and hasn't been seen since.
Update: Contacted the vendor, and they said they would send me another set pronto--nice!
Another Update: The replacement laces arrived, but they do not have the metal tips that were the reason that I ordered the laces in the first place. Bad job.
The Last Update: They sent new laces with metal tips. Finally, good job!
Bottom line: very good laces for boots and sneakers, not so much for dress shoes. I'm very satisfied, and will order again if needed.

These seem to come untied more frequently than other shoe laces. Maybe it's due to the metal tips being heavier, I'm not sure. Read morePublished 10 months ago by SamBoni
