An accessory that often goes unnoticed, the shoelace is an essential everyday item. In addition to their usefulness for holding our shoes, laces have now become real fashion accessories offering a stylish, casual or modern look depending on its color and type.

A little history of laces

The first laces date back to a long time ago, when man was still beginning to dress himself. Faced with various bad weather, it was imperative to find a way to protect oneself, in particular by dressing to cover one's body. It was also during this time or more precisely during prehistory that the original shoes were born. It was made very simply using animal skins and to hold them, leather strings were used. Later, these will become the laces we know today. After the end of the 14th century, shoe design with laces finally became a real profession. This will continue to evolve until the 17th century when production is carried out by craftsmen called weavers. Thanks to the industrialization that is beginning to take hold, they could already use a loom.

But officially, we recognize Harvey Kennedy as the inventor of shoelaces in 1790. Although the leather ties he created were difficult to manipulate, he made a huge sum of money with his patent filing. In terms of practicality, it is the plastic laces designed around the 20th century that manage to impose themselves.

Among the many colors available on the market, orange shoelaces are loved by most people. Indeed, they reflect energy and youth due to their clear and brighter complexion. Since they remain warm to the eye, this color often makes us think of joy and good humor. Of course, you have to know how to choose the shoes that go with these laces in order to be more stylish. Even with small details like these accessories, you make a big difference in your overall outfit. Just by replacing the laces, it's as if you just got yourself a new pair of shoes. This is the opportunity to impress your entourage by adopting this new look. What's more, several colors with different shades are on sale. Therefore, it is possible to easily find the ideal orange laces for any of your shoes (boots, sneakers, waders, sports shoes).

The different types of orange laces

To start with, we have the cords, the classic orange laces are the best known. This is due to the fact that they correspond to all kinds of shoes, whether made of canvas or those intended to be worn in town. Designed with braided cotton, they are medium in size and suitable for all uses.

Then there are the round shoelaces which are also cotton based. On the other hand, these are presented with a thinner diameter whose tips are provided with metal or plastic. This is done in order to facilitate their entry into the eyelets of the shoes, but also to preserve them from fraying.

On one side, there are the thin round laces which, as the name suggests, have a smaller diameter. They are more suited to lace-up boots and city shoes. On the other hand, we have the waxed round laces. With a film of resin covering them, they are shinier and at the same time stronger.

Furthermore, flat orange laces are best suited for shoes commonly referred to as sneakers. Also made from cotton, their standard widths are around 8mm with a flatter surface. These are also equipped with plastic or metal at their ends.

Finally, we find the extra wide orange laces which are a variant of the flat laces. By their diameter, they are very remarkable once installed on the shoes. Due to this peculiarity, they are made for skateboard sneakers.

A few tips for lacing your orange shoelaces

Currently, there are many possible lacings depending on the type of shoe you wear. To stay comfortable with a casual look, military lacing is the way to go. It only takes a few crosses to accomplish it and no need to tie the end caps at the ankle. Among the fastest to execute, cross lacing is the most efficient way. Simple for both tightening and loosening, it is preferred for sports shoes, hiking shoes or standard sneakers. Parallel lacing is another practice done with round laces. On the aesthetic side, it is very pleasant to admire. The classic lacing is the one we often see in luxury shoe shops. When finished, it resembles a Z shape with optimal tightening. Again for chic shoes, the Berluti knot is a perfect technique for an impeccable outfit. This method needs to be done with thin laces. It is a double knot, strong and both graceful and yet easy to untie. However, you have to be pretty nimble to do it right. Finally, there is the ladder lacing, suitable for mountain or hiking boots.
