Have you guys ever heard of Lock Laces?
Have you ever had your laces come undone mid-race only to lose precious seconds and possibly the marathon first place spot because you had to stop and re-tie your laces? Yeah, me neither.
But I have had my laces come undone, nearly trip over them and almost fall flat on my face. I am always annoyed when I have to stop to retie them, not because a first place win was in jeopardy, but because my clumsy self will surely trip if I don't stop. Besides, Ollie does not like to take unexpected stops on our runs. This pictures demonstrates what would probably happen to me.
Since we don't want to lose our teeth or fall flat on our faces, Lock Laces can help prevent these embarrassing situations. You see, once you lock the laces in, they don't come undone. You can slip your shoe on and off without ever untying again. Brilliant, right?
When I first read the instructions on how to secure the laces, I thought it looked complicated, but turns out I was just over-thinking things again. Other than a little trouble opening the bottom clip part, it was so easy a dummy could do it.
