We love a challenge at GearCulture, and when something arrives at the office in a package entitled World's Toughest Boot Laces, no words were needed, we looked at each other and we all just knew. We beat them, burnt them, soaked them, froze them and even dipped them in lard and fed them to the guard dog (last bit's a joke, PETA) and they still wouldn't die. Of course, we haven't tested every brand of boot lace on Earth so whether the title's true is open for debate, but trust us, they'll take some beating. Even the pink ones – if they offered pink.
