I've always found the standard boot laces to be less then ideal. I've broken many laces over the years and that is super frustrating while on duty. Trying to respond to an EMS call with a boot that is loose and falling off is not only unprofessional but it is dangerous.
I think I've found a simple solution with these 2.75mm Sterling Rope Laces. Sterling is one of the leading manufacturers of Rescue Rope in the Fire Service. They make products that countless first responders stake their lives on. So I started with Sterling when I wanted a boot lace that wouldn't fail me.
After I settled on using Sterling 2.75mm rope which has a 300lbs breaking strength I decided to add metal tips just for that added durability. I also thought it would add some extra night time operational safety if I offered glow cord laces. This is a special reflective material thats woven into the rope for the ultimate night time visibility.
