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!

 Our story

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.

During further research, we found that the market was flooded with cheap cotton laces that costed less than 10c to make. Through speaking to industry experts and various retail store owners, we found that the demand for a solution was overwhelming. We were tired of the same old, boring, low quality shoelaces, so we set out to change this. 

The solution

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!
