Up at the crack of dawn for ice time, the rink has just been cleaned, you’re on the bench getting ready so you can make new cuts in the surface and your lace breaks.

Ice time is expensive and every minute on the ice during practice counts, especially when you’re paying for a pro as well. That extra 15 minutes getting a new lace, yanking out the old one and putting in the new one means the difference between a shortened practice or two more attempts at the perfect landing.

Look to laces that work as hard as ice-skater legs. Ironlaces come in lengths up to 120″ so are long enough for any pair of skates. Plus, they are guaranteed to last – which is more than can be said for skating fashions.
