I have seen all sorts of lacing styles and laces. You can see a few dozen styles when you head to a race. I always tied my shoes using the “runners knot” and its worked pretty well. However, when I first saw Lock Laces I was curious. I was sent a pair and I put them on my road running shoes. I was nervous about if they would loosen, if they would hold my shoes on my feet and if my shoes would be as comfortable.
I had nothing to worry about! I took them out for a run this morning and did speed work. They held perfectly! My shoes were snug, but not tight. Putting the shoes on to head out was quick and easy and made getting out the door a little bit faster. In my morning fog I didn’t have to get my laces just right. When I got home, the shoes slipped right off and the laces didn’t loosen at all.
I’m a big proponent of anything that saves time and energy and these laces do both. Sliding on my shoes is easy after spin class with lock laces. My Grandpa can put his own sneakers on again too! These are also wonderful for the frequent traveler. Airport security will no longer slow you down.
These laces are great for racers, triathletes, etc. However, I think they will be most appreciated by the busy mom trying to squeeze in a workout. I also know that they are great for kids who can’t their shoes yet. Special needs children and adults can also benefit from using these laces.
One of the best things about Lock Laces is that they are a feel good company. They give back to the community, they are green and contract with a non-profit that provides job training for adults with developmental delays to assemble Lock Laces in the USA. You can feel great about buying from them.
Their laces come in all sorts of colors. You can get them in your child’s favorite color, or to match your shoes. Oh and for something like this you’d expect to pay a lot of money. However, these are less than $10! They come in lots of colors and some even have reflectivity!
