Here at Mens Gear we have never put a load of thought into shoe laces; we tend to just slip our shoes on, tie the laces and just get on with our days. However, when we were presented with the CastleBrook World’s Toughest Boot Laces ($6.00) we were forced to look from some other perspectives. What about workers, or avid walkers or mountain climbers?
The truth is, sometimes you need a lace you know will do the job and in extreme circumstances could save your life. The Castle Brook laces are made from 550lb army parachute cord complete with seven strands of military nylon, while the end caps are made from high-grade polyolefin nylon. In other words, the Castle Brook World’s Toughest Boot Laces are just that.
