@TheSizzle, thanks again for your help. The TZ Laces are wonderful. Here's my little writeup + pic: http://jacobbockelmann.com/post/70265068909/shoelaces-are-easy-to-take-for-granted-that-is Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I'm really glad they worked out for you.
I've used both of the ones I mentioned to you, and I'm glad you found the TZ laces worth the price. Only upon receiving them can someone truly appreciate their heft.
If you're wondering how the cream colored ones from the other source I mentioned (ShoeLaceExpress), they look like this.
