If you’ve ever been lacing up your boots on the way out the door (in a hurry) only to have them snap, you’ll love Bull Dog’s boot laces. They’re made of Kevlar — that’s right, the same DuPont wonder fabric they use in bullet-proof vests — for extra durability and longevity.
DuPont developed Kevlar back in the ’60s. It possesses a tensile strength twenty times that of steel with only a small fraction of the weight. It also resists high temperatures better than normal nylon or cotton based boot laces. This makes it perfect for welders: hot slag is less likely to melt through or burn the laces. They also have metal aglets to prevent fraying and unwinding.
We could only find uber-laces online via HanksClothing.com, but they come in lengths of 63″ and 72″ and cost $3.95 and $4.95 respectively. (And you’d better hurry if you want some, ’cause I’m ordering mine today.)
