There are lots of survival tools out there, from multi-tool knives to backpacks but this is the first time we see it in the form of shoes laces. We do not take backpacks, even knives, anywhere with us but shoe laces? Yup, everyone wears shoes. So how can these shoelaces help you? First, they are shoelaces. Second, each set of laces includes a 4 inch strand of tinder and a 1 inch ferrocerium rod. One end of a lace is filled with an 8th red colored strand (tinder), which is waterproof, and is extremely flammable so it can be used as tinder. Lastly, it has a Fishing Line. Yes, there are no scissors, knife or a rescue boat in these laces but let’s be fair – we are not that far in future yet.
