Five Star Elastic Laces!
on April 16, 2014
I have in the past, used two other types of elastic shoelaces. The first type had hardware that went at the bottom of the laces as well as at the top....a bit of unnecessary complication in my opinion. The second type were the simple curly laces that stay put, just by the nature of the curls that stuck out of the top holes. Those were hard to lace and kept needing the curls stretched out during the lacing process, but were 'ok' after I was done....and the laces did not come out of the holes 'very often'.
Enter the Ten Seconds Elastic Laces: I had just gotten a new pair of sneakers that came with the old tie up laces, so off I go to the Amazon website to find some more of the curly stretch laces. I happened to see these, and at first the hardware in the photo turned me off because of my experience with the other ones mentioned above. But the more I looked at the photo and read the description, the more worthy they appeared. So I ordered them. And I am extremely happy with them. They laced up very easily and smoothly, they are WAY easier to adjust, there is plenty of string to keep loose enough for my high instep, and the little hardware clip at the top is nice looking and took only about two seconds to feed strings through & adjust. With my shoes on, the shoestrings feel nice and secure, my shoes do not feel at all like they will slip off, yet there is plenty of give so my feet don't feel constricted.
Now that I know how much more I like these over all my other stretchy shoestrings, I am going to go back an get the black, grey, and white. (I got brown the first time). I guess the bottom line, is that for me these laces are perfect!
