December 8, 2015 – We have another cause to support from our friends at Kreinik. As many of you may not know, Doug and Myla Kreinik lost their son, Charles Austin Kreinik, who took his own life at age 28. C.A.K.S. Laces will honor Charles Austin Kreinik. In brighter days Charles was a gifted person of quirky humor and generous spirit. You could even spot that in his clothes: he loved wearing unique, patterned socks and bowties. Suicide may have dimmed that light. however, Doug and Myla Kreinik, want others to keep theirs shining brightly. One small way to do that is through these fun shoelaces, made from Kreinik threads in West Virginia.
Wear these colorful laces to brighten your corner of the world and show your sparkling personality. A portion of the proceeds from C.A.K.S. Laces will benefit a fund designated for suicide prevention, addiction counseling, and grief support programs. So lace up your shoes, put one foot in front of the other, and keep on going—or dancing! Your purchase helps others, supports grieving families, and makes the world a little brighter. These cool laces are made with Kreinik glow-in-the-dark fibers and look awesome under a blacklight.
We will be supporting the Kreiniks by offering the C.A.K.S. Laces here in honor of their son. Click on “New Products” to order your shoelaces! There will be four colors to start out, with more colors planned.
