Heat-shrink insulation for electrical wiring. You can find them at the hardware store in various diameters. Black, about four inches long. Forget the correct name for them.

They are sold in packages of ten or so for a buck or two.

ETA;

Cut one to length, slip it on, shrink with a hair dryer, heat gun, lighter, etc.
Cut four and your shoes have matching laces.

Congratulation on using agelet as the topic of a thread

ETA:

If you need metal because of the wear, the inside of an electricial crimp connector might work, if the lace will go it.

Could you triple knot? Or even better thread the loops back under the laces to hold them in place?
