A little trick I’ve picked up can help with one rather irksome issue with rawhide Sebago laces. This is that the laces tend to come undone whilst walking. Of course this doesn’t just occur with Sebago shoes but pretty much all rawhide laces. According to scientific studies it’s down to reverberations whilst walking. Nothing surprising there Sherlock. You certainly can’t fault the quality of Sebago laces, only the best grade of well-tanned rawhide leather is used and they are rarely known to break. It’s all down to the fibres of the leather and the solution is water. Simply dip the laces into a bowl of water for a minute or so and let the laces take up some water. Henceforth the laces are far less likely to come undone, however a double knot is always recommended. Docksides are of course designed to get wet so alternatively go for a swim in your new deck shoes and that little issue with Sebago laces will be resolved.
