Get to Know the Founder of Pisgah Range LTD Laces, Ryan
"I had been wanting to start my own small business for a while and decided to just try it out and see what happens. I figured if this (random shoe lace) company could charge like $15 dollars and sell junk, I could make the actual best laces ever, and still charge less." -Ryan
Chances are, Pisgah Range LTD would not be around offering the best boot laces on the market if it weren't for the many people who influenced Ryan along the way. He had always owned combat boots and cold weather boots, but Ryan had yet to get into Heritage workwear until he was persuaded to check out companies such as Red Wing Shoes and Thorogood. Ryan drove to his local Red Wing store, got fitted, and came home with the iconic 8111 Iron Rangers. Down the rabbit hole he went and since late 2016, he has now acquired 5 Red WIng pairs (having just bought the new release 3335 Wacoutas)!
"My favorite pair? Oh man! I love my (Red Wing) Irish Setters 9875s, there's just something about that Gold Russet Leather. I really want to get a pair of Irish Setters 9877s!"
His boot love aside, Ryan is currently working on expanding Pisgah's product line by finding a way to make slimmer diameter laces for smaller eyelets (like in dress shoes). He is researching what materials would be the most durable while still being able to offer his lifetime guarantee. In Ryan's personal life, he is expecting to have a daughter this coming May so wish him Congratulations!
"I guess people don't know but Pisgah Range LTD. is a one man show. I do this out of my garage, with a bad back, a work bench that I built, and a big smile. I absolutely love every second of this."
Although it can get difficult being a one man band, Ryan is putting his all into making quality boot laces out there for his customers! Truly, Pisgah Range LTD makes the toughest laces, period.
