Shoelaces

Search_wMy husband  is a snowboarder (a great one) and has an old fashioned snowboarding shoes that don’t use lacing system – they use simple traditional laces, and really long ones to be precise. And that’s not something easily found in a supermarket.

Item: Flat long shoelaces. Arrived in a cute stamped envelope. Colors are a bit gloomy but that’s what my hubby wanted. So far green ones are left as spare and brown ones are laced up, they already where used in one vacation trip (5 days long) and few separate snowboarding trips (few hours long only, in indoor skiing arena) and they still look in good shape though you have to put quite a lot of pressure and tie them tight every time.

Ebay vs. Reality CCCCC_off

Ebay +1 for arriving before term, +1 for grouping in one parcel (because orders where two separate), +1 for quality, +1 for fitting the needs. Reality gets +1 for gloomy colors.
