If you wear your shoes hard – or at all – you’ll probably know that the laces are the first things to go. Whether you dump them for aesthetic reasons or they simply get trashed, it’s hard to find a pair of laces that looks good and goes the distance. Bondi Laces is about to change your life.
The crew from Sydney have developed a premium quality shoe lace that comes in over 100 colour, length and metal tip (yes, metal tip) combinations so you’ll never be left at a loose end.
The thin style makes them ideal for all styles of shoes – sneakers, formal shoes, even those new lace-up stilettos ladies (or gents) – and the ever-changing range of colours makes them ideal for whatever colour palette you’re opting for that day. Copper tips, in three different treatments, make for easy threading, durability and instant floss factor.
And when they say premium quality, they mean it. Bondi Laces will back your shoe strings for 10 years against manufacturing defects and replace them in the unlikely event that they break or snap.
PLUS with every pair of laces sold from their Kickstarter campaign, Bondi Laces is donating a month of education to a child in need in Ghana, Guatemala or Laos, in conjunction with US charity Pencils of Promise. I mean, come on, this is a win-win-win situation.
Want in? Find out more info on their website or throw money at their Kickstarter to get involved. (They’re halfway towards their target, with only 14 days left so don’t sleep!)
