You guys are going to appreciate this one. I was given the opportunity to try Lock Laces and these are my new must have item for the entire family!!!
So I think it is weird that I am a distance runner, but when it comes to tying my shoes I am pretty lazy.. Okay maybe that isn’t the case as much as I like the same fit every stinkin’ time I put on my fabulous running shoes. Well Lock Laces my friends gives me just that. The same fit every time!!! So Lock Laces are an elastic lacing system that has a clip that locks the fit in place. Now they are not dorky by any means. (If you have never seen these before I know you are totally thinking curly laces or something crazy like that. Not even close!!!) You would not even notice they are any different from any other shoe. In fact I like Lock Laces so much that I have put them on all three of my kids shoes.. Even my three-year-old can get his shoes on by himself and we are out the door. No more velcro or crazy straps for us my friends!!! No more, “Mom tie my shoes please”. (Okay I only wish my children were that polite, but either way I don’t hear it!!) My only suggestion is to wear the laces for a couple of runs, so you can make any adjustments that are needed. Then once you love the fit, cut the laces so they are not too long. (On my kids shoes I just trim them a little, so they are not super long, but not too much so once they shred this pair of shoes I can move the Lock Laces to the next pair. Awesome!!!)
Now you have my perspective, but wait it even gets better, you my friends get a dude’s perspective too!!!
This is what the love of my life has to say about Lock Laces….. consistent, reliable, and comfortable are three words that I would use to define my experience with lock laces. I have used my lock laces for many miles and races and have found them to be a product I would recommend to many. There is a learning curve I found though. When I first put them on my shoes the fit felt great, but after a few miles it felt a bit tight, so with a little time and few adjustments Lock Laces became my shoes new friend. After I found the perfect fit I was able to trim the length off the laces and have never adjusted them since. I don’t think I will ever be going back to the double knot..
Nice perspective my love!!!
So, I only found one drawback to Lock Laces…. I never will have the excuse to stop for a minute to tie my shoes again.. I guess that just means I will get my run over with faster.. (Always a positive somewhere right?!)
Well if you are thinking that these are just for runners you are wrong. These are for everyone!!! Any athlete that wears a shoe (nope not you beach volleyball players!!) Any child that has not yet learned to tie shoes, or are too lazy to tie shoes. (yeah that would be my child coming home with shredded shoelaces.) Elderly, physically challenged, or all my pregnant chicas out there. You would so appreciate these bad boys!!!
For all you PTO, PTA or peeps just looking for a great product to use for a fundraiser, here it is. You can find out more information about that at www.locklaces.org.
One last note that grabbed me about Lock Laces is that the laces are actually assembled in the USA by Opportunity Builders, Inc. A non-profit that provides employment for adults with developmental disabilities. If you have an opportunity to go to www.locklaces.org check out the video on this. It will so touch your heart!!!
