When I run, I’m super finicky. All equipment must be secured properly….there can’t be any loose iPod wires. No loose running pants that I have to constantly yank back up. And there must absolutely, positively be no untied shoelaces!
Which usually means I have to spend a great deal of time before my run making sure my laces are securely double knotted.
It’s time consuming, being a type A runner. Seriously.
So when Lock Laces approached me to test out their elastic shoelace and fastening system, I was more than eager to give them a (forgive the pun) test run. Lock Laces are an innovative new product developed especially for the demands of athletes. Unlike regular old laces, they provide flexible compression across the top of the foot with each stride. As you move, your foot changes shape – regular laces stay where they were laced. But Lock Laces stretch and contract to fit the changing needs of your foot.
Even better? The simple clasp mechanism eliminates the need to tie your shoes over and over. You can simply slide them on, secure the clasp and go! This makes Lock Laces perfect for young children who have not mastered shoe tying, and also for those with limited mobility who find it difficult to bend over and tie shoes. Not to mention great for triathletes as it makes transitioning that much easier!
Lock Laces retail for $7.99 – a total steal and a pretty small investment as far as fitness products go! I love mine. They come in a bunch of fun, fashion forward colors – in fact, my tween niece spied the package of laces the day they were delivered and begged me for a pair. And who knows what’s cool better than an eleven-year-old?
My very favorite thing about Lock Laces is just the fact that they take a step out of my gearing up to run routine. Less time prepping means more time pounding pavement.
