    ok, this may make me seem like a dumb ass, but i'm trying to replace a pair of shoe laces on a prop pair of knee high boots for a photo shoot, and i need to find them in white.

    i've seriously NEVER bought just a pair of laces before and have no idea how you go about making sure you have the right size.

    the lace in the boots now is 136 inches tip to tip. An e-bay search yeilds no results for laces that big, nor does a google search.

    do you measure them in half, (68") or what?

    I'm pretty sure you multiply the number of holes on one side by 6. That's how many inches.
    Ex: 5 holes on one side * 6" = 30" of necessary lace.

    Try taking the shoe in to a shoe store and ask them

    they might know.. they might not.. but it doesn't hurt.

    or just ask them about what laces to get for women's knee high boots :) 

    I wonder if they might be unique.. and you might have to go to some adult shop.. if they're kinky enough

    Edit: tried to google searches for you... ended up going to a women's online store.. was on shoe section.. did a search on lace.. and didn't get any good results. did get turned on though

    yeah, i don't think i can bring the actual boots in.... i may get a few looks. i removed the laces to measure, and there are 21 holes, so i get roughly the same lenght.

    i'll bring the laces around to shops. if worse comes to worse, i'll just get 2 lenghts of white rope from a hardware store, and fashion myself a pair of white lases

    A little tidbit of trivia for shoe lace lovers - Did you know that you can hang yourself on a doorknob with a shoe lace?? Crazy stuff.

    The tips at the end of shoelaces are called aglets. Their true purpose is sinister.

    Remember that the old laces have probably stretched with use.

    I'd visit a strip club and ask the girls where they buy their boots.
