Hi guys:


I bought my first pair of Aldens' in Shell Cordovan - long-wing boots - commando sole


While I did get spare shoelaces, the original ones crapped out in exactly three wears. 

When I pay $700+ for a pair of boots, I expect the bloody shoe laces to last a few years, and still for

them to be able to strangle a human being (think Luca Brasi)


Am I doing something wrong, or do the OEM shoelaces just suck big time?


Thanks for any/all responses.  You may feel free to call/t/ext my cell too (drop me a note, and I will send them

to you!).
