I bought these in 'Much Brighter' because they appeared, well, much brighter than other blue laces I'd seen. My girlfriend is a big fan of colored laces and has quite a few pair, but the electric/royal blue is a stand-out from anything else in her collection, and seemed like a perfect stocking stuffer. Unfortunately the bright color is all editing. The laces are between royal and navy blue- a pretty standard blue dress lace. Quality is not particularly impressive, and I've purchased better for a couple bucks cheaper in the men's section of our local luxury department store.
One final gripe- I bought both these and a pair of boot laces (both were off-color) and despite being sealed in plastic bags, the black label/wrapping was kind of beaten up on both- not great gifting material. I'm attempting to return these now.

Terrible

I received these in my December box. I was actually quite excited, because I have needed a new pair of laces for my chukkas lately. I got the green ones, and thought they were pretty cool. After about fifteen minutes with them in my boots, however, they begin to un-tie themselves. I will notice my shoes coming loose, and then realize they are completely undone. I have been double knotting them lately, which works, but I'm none to please with these laces...

Shoelaces?

What exactly am I going to do with a set of orange shoelaces? Halloween has passed, so what other occasion should I look forward to swapping my regular laces out for these 'eye-catching' threaders??

Seriously, my wife paid good money for my gift subscription and this is what I find in my box? Went straight in the trash, what a waste! :(

Wrong color, wrong size, wrong material. Completely useless product. The cat's claimed it as a toy when it was left to the side. I would never by them

Short

These laces are short enough to be classified as useless. They do, at first, appear to be nice laces, but I don't even own a pair of shoes for which these are long enough.

um, they're laces

I received the orangey ones and cannot ever imagine wearing them with dress shoes. They are short and quite thin so can really only be used on dress shoes. I only wear black or brown dress shoes and this color just doesn't work for me.

Quality waxed cotton

Quality waxed cotton; high quality and utilitarian. I wish all replacement shoelaces were made this well. Nonetheless, few old-school men are going to wear bright red shoelaces.

You just discovered the 2011 trend of colored shoelaces.

My dress shoes don't have shoelaces to begin with, and I am not fan of the color (yellow) I received anyway
