Choosing a replacement shoelace for your shoes is quite easy. All you need to do is measure your existing shoelace and find a replacement. However, there are so many different types to choose from. You have your standard cotton shoelaces, or waxed shoelaces, polyester, and now there are no tie shoelaces.
First, you have to decide what you will be using the shoes for.
Different types of shoes
There are several different shoes for different purposes and for those shoes there are recommended shoelaces accompanying those shoes. Find the list of shoelaces below:
- Shoelaces for everyday or casual shoes
- Shoelaces for office workers
- Shoelaces for construction workers
- Shoelaces for athletes
- Shoelaces for fashion shoes
- Shoelaces for school
- Shoelaces for toddlers and kids
Shoelaces for everyday casual shoes
If you are wearing these shoes every day and using them to walk around or occasionally running in them, then I would suggest using no-tie shoelaces. Read our in-depth article on what are no-tie shoelaces for more information. Or view our no-tie shoelace range.
Or if you prefer using regular shoelaces, you can choose any of our shoelaces.
Shoelaces for office workers
Business professionals wear dress shoes with shoelaces. The shoelaces should be of good quality to match the expensive shoes.
Here are some suggestions for shoelaces that you can use: round waxed shoelaces and round silicon no-tie shoelaces.
If you are like me, I constantly slip on and off my shoes during the day, silicon no-tie shoelaces allow me to do this easily.
Shoelaces for construction workers
Construction workers are exposed to all sorts of harsh conditions, so think about shoelaces that can stand up to tough outdoor work. They need shoelaces that are durable too, especially if they are exposed to the elements every day.
Shoelaces for athletes
Sports shoelaces should be able to handle the intensity and pressure exerted by athletes. You can choose shoelaces that are durable, water-resistant, and flexible.
Shoelaces for fashion shoes
Fashion shoelaces can be shoelaces that are designed to match your taste and personality. They can be shoelaces that you like the most, such as leather shoelaces, polka dot shoelaces, or camouflage shoelaces.
Shoelaces for primary and high schoolers
Kids and teens can be very rough with their uniforms, and this also applies to their shoes. If your child's shoelaces are torn, broken, or frayed you can buy replacement shoelaces if their shoes are still in good condition.
There are several varieties of replacement shoelaces available:
- Durable shoelaces such as waxed shoelaces or polyester shoelaces are a great choice.
- No-tie shoelaces are great for kids, especially for those who choose not to tie their shoelaces, or kids that just slip in and out of their shoes. I would recommend the silicon no-tie shoelace for kids.
Shoelaces for pre-schoolers and toddlers
Toddlers are cute and they are learning about anything and everything, sometimes it's hard for them to master how to tie their shoes as everyone learns at their own pace.
Wouldn't it be great if shoelaces were easier to use for them?
