    Please. My laces have been completely annihilated with use (ONLY 3 MONTHS!!) on my clarks beeswax desert boots. I called clarks and visited a store and they tell me that they have no replacement laces....they just don't exist.

    Has anyone figured a remedy for this problem?

    Thannks for your completely useless smart-assery, but can anyone tell me where I can get a pair of the actual laces, not some thick-ass pair of Kiwi hiking boot laces?

    See retailtherapy4all. I specifically Asked Sarah to stock laces for this very purpose.

    try calling clarks customer service again. I had to get my laces replaced a couple of months ago and they sent me new ones for free.

    If all else fails, you can always get leather thong (the stuff they use in boat/deck shoes)...

    Make sure she's taken it off first.

    I think I need to take a break from visiting SF for a while.

    Whatever you do, make sure you get the correct tips on the laces.

    I use the rawhide laces, since my DB ones broke. I think they look better. . .
