After they lifted 714 kilograms, Kolon Sport’s “Heraclace” shoelaces entered the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s longest and toughest shoelaces. 

Recognized for its tensile and abrasion forces, the Heraclace shoelaces were officially certified as The Toughest Shoelaces in the world by Guinness World Records (GWR). 

The Heraclace is a shoelace made of Heracron, a fiber that offers ultimate high strength, developed by Kolon Industries.

After the product was certified by the Korea Record Institute for the best record in Korea last year, it also officially received the certification as The Toughest Shoelaces in the world through the GWR ceremony this time.

Attended by 50 participants, including GWR official record examiner Sam Mason and Kolon Sport executive director Yoon Jae-eun, the GWR ceremony that certifies the Kolon Sport’s Heraclace took place at the Kolon Industries office in Gangnam on March 4. 

Along with it, Kolon Sport released its hiking boots “High Max” accompanied by the Heraclace. The High Max allows customers to save people using its shoestring in emergency situations while involving in outdoor activities.

Made with Gore-Tex, which offers the unique combination of durably waterproof protection and breathable comfort, and Ortholite insoles, which provides the balance of moisture wicking and anti-odor properties, the High Max offers pleasant and comfortable wearing feeling.
