There still plenty of time to find that “perfect’’ Father’s Day gift. Here are a few of my favorites:


Whiskers – maker of men’s and women’s, premium, golf-specific shoelaces – continues to take the PGA Tour by storm with nearly 50 players, plus caddies, wearing myriad colors and unique patterns during tournament weeks.

Golfers can match Whiskers laces’ colors and patterns to their shirts, hats, belts and shoes. Re-lacing golf shoes often takes less than three minutes.  The laces are fits for classic shoes land athletic styles.

In addition to golf laces, Whiskers designs and manufactures laces specifically for dress and casual shoes, sneakers and boots. They coordinate in style and color with trendy footwear and apparel brands, are crafted with ultra-durable poly-nylon tech weave and high-grade aglets, and come in multiple styles, shapes and lengths.

They join popular solid laces in navy, Carolina blue, pink and red. Navy-light blue, orange-white, berry-black, green-blue and purple-pink are top-selling patterns.

It blocks the rain, too.  The design moves with the body, so you can swing comfortably. And now it’s even more lightweight and stretchy, but with the same level of waterproofness and breathability.
