1. METAL TIPS- Our copper tips (aglets) replace your traditional plastic tips. We are proudly the first shoelace brand to offer our range in SILVER, GOLD OR ROSE GOLD. No more having to lick those broken plastic tips and trying to thread them through the eyelets!
2. GUARANTEED TO OUTLAST YOUR SHOES - Our dual nylon core is reinforced with a 32 strand high density polyester weave. All Bondi Laces are laboratory tested to the highest quality standards to hold up to 154lb (70kg) in weight. We're backing this claim with a 10 year guarantee.
3. WORLD'S LARGEST RANGE OF PREMIUM SHOELACES - We are offering our range in 150+ unique colors, patterns & metal tip combinations. Our extensive research has allowed us to produce never seen before patterns all inspired by the Australian lifestyle.
4. MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON SOCIETY- Bondi Laces is working with US charity, Pencils of Promise. For every pair of laces purchased outside of Kickstarter we'll be donating 1 month of education to a child in need in Ghana, Guatemala or Laos. We aim to provide 1 million months of education by 2020. This is a great opportunity for me to give back to my roots, as my parents came to Australia from Laos as migrants.
5. COMPLETE YOUR WARDROBE - Sometimes its the smallest thing in your wardrobe that has the biggest impact. Be 1 of the first to stand out from the crowd with coloured shoelaces that will get you noticed. We've had people tell us that our $17 laces can make your old $100 shoes look like $1,000 designer shoes!
I bought a pair of blue cotton wax laces to replace the broken laces on my Italian dress shoes. The laces looked great at first; however after a month of daily use, the laces started to fray and the colour had faded away to light blue and white. Frustrated, I researched and discovered that there were no quality shoelaces readily available in retail store that were able to stand the test of time.
We have set out to create a brand that's DIFFERENT. It's different because we want to focus on creating a sustainable business that gives back. We designed the laces based on all the qualities that we would love to see in a quality pair of shoelaces, eliminating all the problems of existing shoelaces. Shoelaces that are guaranteed to last 10 years- no matter the weather conditions. You will never need to worry about your laces discoloring, snapping or plastic tips breaking ever again!
Dress shoes vs boots & sneakers:
Our dress laces are 75cm / 29" in length and are suitable for 3 - 5 pair of eyelets
Our boot laces are 120cm / 47" in length and are suitable for 6 - 10 pair of eyelets

Risks and challenges
Creating the products and sourcing the material was challenging. We have gone through making many prototypes. We have arrived at a completely unique product and we are now asking for your support.
We have a open line of communication with our suppliers. We are working with one of the largest shoelaces manufacturers in the world. The are very experienced within the industry and can definitely meet production requirements.
We have a considerable amount of experience in both domestic and international shipping and logistics. Hence we are very confident in sending out the laces to you by April 2015.
We look forward to building a personal relationship with each of our customers. The team will be regularly checking our emails along with the comments left on our Kickstarter page. We endeavour to respond to all inquiries as soon as possible.
