Default Laces

I have used the Riedell standard black laces and skinny Criss Cross laces.

Decided to change the color scheme on my skates and researched laces again and also wanting to make sure I got waxed laces. Settled on some Elite Hockey Prolace Waxed Hockey Skate Laces.

Wow! Skates feel totally different and better! Like the skate is a part of my foot. I had them laced slightly too tight but it was the first time so will experiment. Reviewers say that you can vary the tightness on different parts of the boot and they will stay in place so going to try that next. Would all skaters be this more satisfied with these types of laces compared to standard. Seems like a small price to pay for such increase in satisfaction; wondering why Riedell skimps on this and insoles?

This experience was installing the new laces after a 3-week layoff and figuring that I would not be as good as before. Was as good or better especially on my clockwise crossovers which I was still struggling with.

Default Parrafin

I wax my laces with Parowax. You can't buy waxed 110" laces.

Default Just sew two shoter ones together

Put the seam on the bottom rung. Can't see it makes great color combos.

That's shorter ones of course.

I use the "Derby Laces" brand, which you can get on several online skate sites and Amazon.com. I have them on both pairs of inline speed skates and my Bont quad speed skates.

You can also change the tightness and if they'll loosen or not by lacing either over or under the eyelets. (https://runrepeat.com/top-10-running...ing-techniques)

I use A&R 120" laces. I don't care for waxed laces, soft laces or laces that tend to stretch. The A&R has the right stiffness and firmness I need for effective lacing.
