Taylor Spivey quickly worked her way into the world’s elite triathlon scene.

Since the invention of Lock Laces®, triathletes have been using the laces to cut time off their transitions during races because they don’t have to waste time tying their shoes. However, the elasticity of the laces also provides a triathlete with the optimal comfort they need to push through long distances. The laces expand with the foot which reduces metatarsal injury and foot pain. However, Lock Laces® keep shoes snug and secure so, an athlete never has to stop to adjust their shoes. Triathletes also are exposed to hot and humid climates along with wet conditions. Lock Laces® are water resistant so, they help shield the foot from excess moisture.

Lock Laces® is the original, patented and trademarked, elastic, no-tie shoe lacing system. Positive Distribution LLC manufacturers and sells Lock Lace® in 50 countries, in over 3000 specialty running stores, on, and on Amazon.
