They feel super strong, but you better double knot them! I have a pair of Asolo Plasmic shoes that have eaten up their original shoelaces.

The best shoelaces I’ve ever used for the trail. This is a review of the Technora Toughlace shoelace made by Lawson Outdoor Equipment.

Weighing in at a whopping 6.25 grams or .22 oz. each I can carry six of these and barely break an oz., and at 6.25 inches they aren't taking up noticeable space in your pack. And… Full review
