    Hiking boot laces


    What are some good brands that make replacement laces for hiking boots? Any waterproof ones that will last when being laced while muddy and wet? I keep killing mine because of that.

    I use 5050 paracord for all my laces with no issues. Cheap too.

      Iron Laces. I get a year or so out of them. Been using them for several years now.

        Says they are guaranteed for life.. So are you just sending them in for new ones once yours take a dive, or do you pony up for a new set every year? Any company that promises a guarantee for life better be ready to live up to that.

          I just get a new set. They last a little over a year for me.

              I don't know if these would last like you want, but I have had extremely good luck with these, also from amazon.

              ETA:
              They are a little larger in diameter than normal, and as such, you may have problems with small ID eyelets in your boots/shoes...

                I’ve tried those, and they didn’t seem to last any longer than what came with the boots. Mud and water seem to kill them.

                  Any of the Kevlar laces should hold up. I'm still running the original Kevlar laces in my Garmont boots that I bought back in '99.
                  Whenever there is doubt, there is no doubt.

                    The laces in my lowa tibet GTX are still strong after a couple years. Granted, I don't wear them daily, but I have put a good number of miles on them.

                        A little heat shrink on the ends and you're set.

                          https://lawsonequipment.com/All-Prod...ces-p1080.html same stuff as winch lines.

                          The kevlar ones I wasn't impressed with, the inner core is still nylon or some cheap material.

                            Ordered a couple of pairs of these. So far, so good. They’ve been handling being wet and muddy way better than the laces they replaced.

                              Nice. I've had good luck with them. My RedWings are a couple years now, and I'm certain the laces with outlive the boots.
