    No stretch for me to, I've rarely had my boots become tighter during the days hunt. Usually have to stop a time or two and tighten things up. I purchased laces that are Kevlar and love them, no stretch and the bow knot stays tied all day no problem. Can't remember the brand name. I also lase my boots in stages, just above the eyelet lace holes I tie an over hand knot and cinch it down then continue up the speed hooks..............works for me.

    I'll echo the non-stretchy laces for the same reasons that have been mentioned, particularly drhorsepower - I'm usually stopping one or more times per day to tighten laces.
    Ah, the nostalgic aroma of a yak dung stove brewing up some tea full of herbs best left untranslated.
