Techwear brand FORCE A BETTER®︎ is offering its first-ever CORDURA®︎ shoelaces designed to compliment heavy-duty footwear silhouettes used for extreme sports like skateboarding. CORDURA®︎’s synthetic fiber-based fabrics have built a reputation of being one the strongest and most versatile activewear materials on the market, serving as the hallmarks for several headline projects such as New Balance’s 550 collaboration with size? and Sean Wotherspoon’s latest adidas Originals EQT offering.

The upcoming CORDURA®︎ laces promise 10 times the wear strength and two times the tensile strength of ordinary laces and feature co-branded logos on the lace aglets. The CORDURA laces will be on sale beginning May 14 at the FAB online store for ¥1,600 JPY ($12 USD). Two sizes are available for 4-5 hole and 5-7 hole shoes.

Elsewhere in footwear, Travis Scott’s Nike Air Max 1 collection receives a release date.
