Still made in the US of A

The laces on the Nike shoes soon tore, being loosely woven and not of good quality. They've been worn knotted for a couple of years. Academy had a good shoelace display and so some Shoe Gear 63-inch flat laces came home. The package bears this language, labeled "Unconditional Guarantee": "If not 100% satisfied with these laces, return them to R.I. Textile Co. with original receipt and we will replace them at no charge." The Rhode Island Textile Co. is in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and has been there since 1913. I love these statements from the "why choose us" page: "Whatever your narrow fabric needs, we probably make it or will develop a new style to your specifications...Depending on elastic width, we offer rolled, spooled and festooned put-ups to accomodate our customers' sewing needs.
