Lock Laces


Elastic no-tie shoelaces

I am not a good shoe tie-er. For years I have wanted to get Velcro shoes, but my wife won’t let me because she says they’re for five-year-olds or for eighty-five year olds and I am not one of those. About a year ago a friend of mine told me about these elastic shoelaces.

Lock Laces are like bungee cords. You lace them up one but you don’t have to tie them. They have a little lock and you lock them in and they are as tight as your regular shoelaces. I haven’t tied my shoelaces in about a year and my wife doesn’t yell at me or walk ten feet ahead of me because they kind of look like normal shoelaces.
