Lock Laces Giveaway: Win, Exchange, or Promo Code



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.  

Ollie, get out of the way! I am trying to take a picture!
So easy a dummy could do it.


I wanted to share Lock Laces with you for a couple of reasons. One is that I have FOUR pairs to giveaway! All you have to do is a leave a comment on this blog post telling me why you would like to win them and fill out the Rafflecopter form for your chance to win a free pair. I will ship out one pair each to four lucky winners! There are plenty of optional ways to earn extra entries into the contest.

Yes, my dear male readers, I do realize that these are hot pink. Just remember, real men wear pink.

  4. I always have to double knot my shoelaces then have to either fight to get them untied or try to slip or wiggle out of my shoes with the laces still tied. These would be so awesome!! :) These are my absolute favorite color too!

    ReplyDelete
  5. These look really cool. I want a pair for me, but if I won them, I would probably try them on my 6 year old daughter's shoes. She has really skinny feet and has trouble tying her shoes tight enough to stay on by herself. These look like they would be easier for her.

  11. I got a new pair of UA Spines that the laces will not stay put - and loose laces are just a pain during a race.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'd love to try them because loose laces are annoying, especially the puffier laces that don't stayed tied very well!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm tired of my shoes being too tight or too loose. I'd love to win.

  15. I just started to become a runner and my laces come undone all the time. This would def help me keep my pace without stopping.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'd love to win because my laces come undone at least once every day. And I always have my dogs with me, so retying them is no easy feat!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I don't have a problem with laces coming undone, but I do have a problem finding the perfect way to lace my running shoes. It tends to get way too tight or loose. I see I'm not the only one with this problem but I'm still thinking "Come on Evelin, how hard can it be to just get it right?!" Anyways, seems like the LockLaces might be the solution to this problem.. :)

  18. I'm a constant re-tie'er LOL I need these laces ;)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I don't have a problem with my shoes coming untied since I double knot them but I'm training for my first triathlon and would love these for the running transition! I think trying to double knot after swimming and biking may just do me in!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I would love to have these because my Asics laces are never long enough, and it's hard to double knot them. It gets aggravating to worry about them - especially in a race.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would love to win these. My laces get too tight during long runs!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Would love to win these especially in pink as its my favorite color!

  27. I keep hearing about these lock laces on different blog and would love to give them a try.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would want to win them to use for my shoes during an upcoming triathlon!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would love to try these in my trail shoes. I always double knot my laces when my shoes are caked full of mud it's really hard to get them untied!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm a klutz, and even when I tie my shoes with a double knot, they STILL manage to come untied! It's so frustrating and even more frustrating when you have to stop during a race to retie your shoes - wastes precious time! (not like I'm going to win, but still!)

    1. Thanks Kat! I'll add the promo code to the post - I wasn't sure if that was OK or not, I thought maybe they had to click on your link directly for you to get credit.

  33. I am a chronic lace-re-tie-er, though usually it's because I can't quite get the right tension. I also double tie though and hate to have to pick at the knot when I go to re-tie. These probably would help me speed up my bouts of running O.C.D., ha ha. Thanks for tip! I might just have to add these to my running wish list!

    Great blog, by the way!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I would love a pair of these! I had my laces come undone halfway through a cross country race in high school and have been triple-knotting ever since!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love my locklaces. I would gladly take another pair for my new shoes next month!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I have three friends joining me in their first 1/2 marathong - these could be good luck for all of us!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I want to win lock laces because my laces come undone regularly unless I knot them. If I knot them then I have a hard time getting out of my shoes when I'm done running.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Got them on my sneaks right now but they're old and need to be replaced!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'd love to have them because they'd be super handy during triathlon transitions!!!

    ReplyDelete

  42. My left shoe lace always comes untied ... I keep telling myself that I need to get those gadgets we used to put on babies shoes (am I telling my age) LOL I didn't know about lock laces .. great giveaway..

    ReplyDelete
  43. I would love love these as my laces are always coming undone. Double knots don't seem to work and I feel Terrible for making my run buddies stop while tie my laces but the break is nice on long runs :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I would so love these, first Pink is my favorite color & the other is my husband says I must be the clumsies person out there because i am always managing to fall or trip for no apparent reason. I guess you can say he worries about me now especially now that I started running to start my journey to being fit & just a healtier me.

  46. Because I need more hot pink. :) Seriously, I hate double knotting my laces, so these sound great.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I believe I read a blog review for these a few months back, and I was interested in them right away. Lock Laces joined the ever growing list of running or fitness related goodies I want. Right now my family is seriously living on a budget so I try not to spend money on anything unless it is a necessity. It would be great to win these, and exciting too.

    ReplyDelete
  54. These look totally awesome and pink is my favorite color! I would LOVE to win these :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Love my lock laces! Essential for triathlon where time spent tying shoes is time wasted! I also have them on my racing flats as for some reason Brooks decided to use these ribbon-like laces that ALWAYS come untied, even when double-knotted. And of course my kids love lock laces as they're too lazy to tie their shoes!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I am obsessed with lock laces... that's why I want to win them lol.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm not afraid to wear pink...it's a good color on me!

  65. I never used to have an issue with my laces coming undone until recently. I had to stop twice to re tie ony half marathon last week and I missed my goal by 1 minute so I blame my laces!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I would love to try these out! Plus they match my shoes ;)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Since I train with my toddler and our jogging stroller I already have to deal with stopping multiple times. It's either his books flying out of the stroller or a snack bag that he's done with. He likes to keep me on my toes:)It would be nice to lessen the amount of times I stop by having a pair of these!! Especially when I train for a fast run! I'm trying so hard to improve on my time so it would be nice to not have to worry about my laces!
    Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I would LOVE to not have to worry about those damned laces coming undone!!

  69. Running my first marathon this May and the last thing I need is my laces coming undone! These would be awesome! Thanks for the chance :-)

    ReplyDelete
  70. I've used them on an old pair of shoes and they worked great. The pink laces might clash with my orange Hoka's but I'm about function.

    ReplyDelete
  71. This is what I need! I double tie my laces, but they still come undone sometimes. I don't want to roll my ankle and end my race just because my shoes came untied!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I have followed the article from Runners World about how to tie my laces before running. It doesn't always work. THese would solve that problem.

    ReplyDelete
  73. What a great idea - I hate it when my laces come untucked and flap around my ankles when I run.
