Legendary Lakers player, Kobe Bryant, unexpectedly passed away earlier this morning in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. At the young age of 41, he was often regarded as one of the greatest basketball players of all time. He was MVP in the NBA in 2008, led in scoring for two different seasons, broke the record for how many seasons a guard played in NBA history and so much more.
His legacy extends off the basketball court, as well. He was the official ambassador for After-School All-Stars, which helps keep kids off the streets in 13 different U.S. cities. He supported education and health initiatives in China by starting the Kobe Bryant China Fund. Also, he gave a $1 million dollar check to a nonprofit organization to help veterans transition to civilian life again.

Just hours before he suddenly passed, he posted a heartfelt message on social media to congratulate Lebron for beating his scoring record. Many fans openly appreciating this gesture of sportsmanship and positivity.
"The Black Mamba" will surely live on in the hearts of sports fans for all time. Rest in peace.
The best way to determine your shoe laces size is to measure the length of the shoelaces you are replacing and most closely match it with our size options. **This will give you the most accurate fit**
If you are unable to measure the old shoe laces you want to replace, refer to the shoe lace size chart below. Keep in mind, these are suggestions and can be slightly affected by your lacing preferences, if you have a quite large or very small shoe size, and the distance between eyelets.
The correct Lace Kings shoe lace length is generally determined by how many pairs of eyelets (or holes) your shoes have.
*SHORTER: If your shoe eyelets are positioned very close together across the tongue, you may want to choose your length from the shorter side of the above chart. The smaller option can also be a good choice for petite women's sneakers or children's sizes. Also, if you prefer to leave your shoes untied, the shorter size may be preferable.
*LONGER: Choose the longer option for most men's shoe sizes or if you prefer to have enough length at the end to double knot.
*Note: Choose your size according to how many eyelets you plan on using on your shoe to get the best fit if you do not plan on lacing them all the way up to the top pair of eyelets.
Contact us if you have any questions about which size would be best for you.
