They are regular lace. I probably have about 60 days on them. Most of the damage was done by day 20 though. Where the laces are secured to my liners there is foam that is ripping from the liner and the laces are pulling away too, which makes it hard to keep my liners tight. Ive ripped a pair of laces, but thats no biggie. A lace hole at the instep broke and they are wayyyy too packed out. Im constantly having to tighten my boots to avoid heel lift.
