The first shipment was lost in the mail and had to be resent. The length of the laces were fine. The thickness however was more appropriate for a boot rather than a dress shoe. The description ' Strong Round ' was misleading. If the thickness of the lace is clearly defined, this would be most helpful. I am not totally unhappy with your product and would be inclined to order from you again if a clearer description of the product is provided. I have been reluctant to buy products on line because I firmly ascribe to the moto " See it, Feel it, Touch it."
