I ordered 3 pair and discovered on Christmas morning (of course) that you need to order the zero-friction fittings in addition to the laces to really make these work. That and you need the long ones...I ordered the 22 inch for my 10 year old daughter and they are too small. I'm going to try and make it work but I'm disappointed that it wasn't clearly stated that you need to order the fittings separately. Heck, in the instructions on how to use them, they ONLY say to install the fittings first.
Why is that the first step when that part doesn't even come with the laces??
