Just when you thought they have already thought of everything, think again. Introducing Flint Laces, a seemingly simple pair of bootlaces that could someday save your life if you’re stuck in the wilderness with no fire source.

While they appear to be quite the ordinary shoelace, Flint Laces actually hold a 1 inch ferro rod capped with rubber in the tip. This is just enough to produce a spark with any steel knife to start a fire in the wilderness, should you find yourself with a pack of wet matches and a broken lighter; we all know how important it is to have a backup plan when you’re trying to survive in the wilderness. These ingenious laces are available for $13.95 each. Watch the video below. [Purchase]
