    Anyone know where you can buy round Five Ten shoelaces or some similar shoelaces? I always manage to snap my shoelaces about 6 months after purchasing the shoes.

    I use the REI waterproof laces in the 48" size. They are not identical but close enough for me and seem to be more durable which is a plus

    Actually, the 5.10 shoelaces are pretty nice and hard to find.

    I ran into a 5.10 rep at Windham and he said to just email customer support and they'll send a free pair. That's what I did, and they sent them out.

    I heard that Enve was testing some carbon infused laces, and so far the Syndicate riders (minus Rat Boy) have been pleased with the results.

    Enve needs to infuse Rat Boy's feet to a pair of pedals.

    Yankz laces rock. No more loops/ends getting devoured.

    Those look good, but are they long enough for 5.10s?

    I'd rather have destroyed laces than look like a goon.

    If you're in 5.10s, that ship has sailed anyway.

    The speed laces on my Salomon trail runners are awesomeness. Wish all my shoes had them. Make fun of that Yankz brand, but once you've used them a bunch, you get ticked for even having to tie shoes. ;D

    Also, they would be AWESOME for under the tongue on my Shimano DX shoes. It's hard to tie laces with that flap in the way, but that flap is pure awesome for mud.

    Awesome. My word.

    ...with some ti eyelets. I bet you could shave 1/4 pound from the shoe and make it stronger. I'm putting my order in.
