Fasten shoes in a cinch with Lock Laces

NEWS – Now that our sandals are stashed for the season, it’s sneaker time in my house. Because we’re always rushing somewhere—school, work, errands, dog walks, kids’ activities—it becomes a hassle to constantly tie and retie our shoes.

If you’re like me and always have your hands full, it’s even worse.

So last year I invested in some Lock Laces, a stretchy no-tie lacing system. These turned my favorite Nikes into slip-ons. If I’m exercising, I can easily tighten them up a notch by squeezing the button on the locking mechanism. And when I’m done, I can loosen them the same way.

I wish I would have found these when my kids were energetic toddlers, or even better, when I was pregnant and couldn’t reach my feet!

These would be especially helpful for anyone with dexterity or mobility issues, especially those who want to continue wearing their broken-in tennis shoes but without having to tie and untie them.

Purchase one pair on Amazon for $7.99; two for $14.99; or heavy-duty boot length for $9.99.

Lock Laces come in 12 colors and currently have 4.5 out of 5 stars with 13,700 reviews.

  2. I swear by these. I buy a new pair for every new pair of running shoes I purchase, and put them on before I even use them once outdoors. Yes, you can transfer them to new shoes if you need to be frugal, but since you tend to cut off the aglets to make them fit, it can be hard to lace them into a new pair of shoes. I never have to worry about my laces coming untied during a run and they look like they supposed to come with the shoe, so you don’t get any funny looks.
