Tactical/Escape Shoe and Boot Laces

I wish I was making this up. For less than $11 you can get boot and shoe laces that are Kevlar and allow you to escape capture.

Do you even operate, bro?

    You can use paracord to do the same thing, and it has a higher breaking strength.

    Even the cotton laces that came with those Chuck Taylors could do that. Plumbers have been cutting stuff with string ever since PVC pipe was invented.

    Tying your shoes properly and not letting the laces dangle can also help you avoid capture and embarrassment.

    That reminds me. Do the laces come with the Special Boots that allow you to climb walls?

    Unlawful restraint? How about lawful restraint escape?

    So what if his hands are behind his back, his feet zip tied together and then again to the ones holding his hands and he is on his belly...............?????

    You think Clean would pay to get him back? She'd probably throw money at 'em to keep him.

    Clean would keep him..............Its taken her many years to retrain the marine to the point where he knows both what and what not to do as well as what she's thinking..........

    If they didn't cost 3 times as much as regular ones, I might be interested for the simple fact that I am betting Kevlar boot laces would resist abrasion much better than regular ones would. Broken/frayed boot laces piss me off. That, and it would be funny as hell showing everyone my tactical boot laces.

    They're also good for sawing off the forelegs of deer, antelope, moose, elephant...well, maybe not elephant.

    But.....if it needs cutting, I'm grabbing a shoelace.

    if you untie your shoe lace to cut some thing and try to run you will lose your shoe buuutt you can sure use their Hollow Spy Bolt or Hollow Spy Coin everybody need several of them to be a operator

    Seems reasonable enough for hunting boots to me. Having a lace break up a mountain would suck, and carrying spares is yet another of those "it's only a quarter ounce" items that leads to your pack being 10 pounds heavier than you want it to be. My Danners are on their third (fourth?) set of laces and the outer layer of the sheath / core replacements I get at B.P.S. tends to separate.

    Not for my daily sneakers, but the boonie stompers - - maybe.

    Then get these. Unless they're taking you to Castle Anthrax, then you might have fun there. I'm just saying there's not a great chance of anyone wanting to kidnap Ned. Or at least not keep him.

    Am I the only one thinking "highly improbable all the special circumstances

    would come together where this product might be useful" ?

    Let's see:

    1. Zip Tie restraints.

    2. Nobody is watching you.

    3. They zip tie your hands IN FRONT OF YOU.

    4. You happen to be wearing the right pair of

    footwear, with the laces ready.


    THEN...

    The odds of me getting into a shootout are quite low and is still carry a gun. I'm not saying these shoelaces by themselves are a great idea, just that having the means to get out of restrains, somewhere on your person while in an unfriendly environment is not without merit.

    My company did some "team building" excercise that was an 'escape room' scenario. Everyone on my team was very happy I regularly have multiple flashlights, a couple knives and a handcuff key with me. Because we were out of our room 30 minutes before the other teams :)
