Too loose? Too tight? How about just right?
Have you ever been on a run and felt pain at the top of your foot? While driving or traveling do your feet ache? Has your shoe nearly fallen off during a race or competition? Do you feel as if your sliding inside your shoes when you are playing your favorite sport?
All of these mysterious sensations comes from a similar culprit. Your shoes are not at the right tension for your activity and your feet are screaming at you to do something about it. However, no one wants to stop what they are doing to re-tie their shoes during their workout, daily life or while on the go. Lock Laces® were created to end this annoying problem and help you find the perfect amount of tension to keep your feet feeling great all day long.
Adjusting the tension of your Lock Laces® takes about 3 seconds. All you need to do is press down on the top of the lock while sliding it up or down along the laces. Sliding the lock towards you will increase the tension of the laces, making your shoe tighter. Sliding the lock away from your body, towards your toes, releases tension which makes your shoes feel looser. Here are some scenarios where you want to have your Lock Laces® tighter or looser.
Tighten your Lock Laces® when:
- Agility drills
- Lifting or CrossFit
- During shorter running races like the mile or a 5k
- Sports that demand side to side movements like tennis, basketball, or football
Slide your lock to a mid-tension when:
- Long distance running
- Long walks
- OCR races
Loosen your Lock Laces® to let your feet relax when:
- Sitting at a desk
- On an airplane
- If your feet are swollen
- Just moving around the house
