In Case of Zombies

In taking a bit of a break today, I turned to my good friend Google for some amusement and found an interesting fact that zombie apocalypse watchers have been discussing for quite some time. In order to slow zombies down and prevent further attacks, when someone dies, you tie their shoelaces together before they turn […]

DirtMonkey Puts Unbreakable Ironlace to the Test

DirtMonkey-Test-Ironlace

Stanley at DirtmonkeyUniversity.com in NY recently reviewed Ironlace and put us through the ultimate torture tests. Blow torches and Ironlace shoelaces as a tow rope?! This is awesome.

Create a Lace Lock

At the top of a pair of running shoes, there are often a set of lace holes that seem ridiculously placed. They aren’t in line with the others and look like they’d strangle your foot – or at least cut off a good amount of circulation – if they were used. So why do running […]

Running Higher

Likely you’ve heard the term “Runner’s High”. It’s the psychological state of feeling that time is suspended and aches and pains are removed. It can even include a certain sense of euphoria or a bit of “I’m a super hero”. So what do laces have to do with achieving the Runner’s High when doing a […]
