Still sticking with the plan to give you a review of the Lock Laces.. I had been hearing a lot about this product via the many running blogs that I
I didn't choose the colors, they picked them for me. They have many great colors, I would have a hard time choosing anyway. Even when they came I had serious debate as to which color to try myself. I decided to pick a color that would best match my shoes. Plus that left the fun, funky colors to giveaway. Yes, I am always thinking of you my devoted readers.
I understood the concept of the laces, but it still seemed to take me awhile to get them inserted and figured out. I had a hard time getting the little nubby things on the end. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out, but my 12 year old son was awfully helpful. He quickly pointed out that I was putting them on upside down. Well, that would explain why I couldn't get them to snap shut. (Hey, I've never claimed to be the sharpest pencil in the box.)
(One with the Lock Laces, one without)
Once I had them install and fastened I felt snug as a bug and never gave another thought to tightening them again. They make getting my shoes off and on very simple. I never had big shoe tying issues before, but I know the all too familiar feeling of my shoes slowing loosening up and needing to be retied to keep them snug and secure feeling. No more, I'm looking to replace all my shoes with Lock Laces. My kids are all gaga over them and I've been telling all my friends about them too. (Today during our run we had to stop twice so rp could tie her shoes, she said "ack! I need to win a pair of your Lock Laces!!") I really wish I could have 100s of pairs to give away (I'm such a giver), but you'll have to settle for trying to win 1 of 2 pairs I am giving away here.
Thank you Lock Laces for giving me a pair to try, you have me convinced and I'll slowly, but surely be switching all our shoes over to this product. Of course, I might just need a pair in each color too!!
