Lock Laces® for Seniors

Everything seems to get a little bit harder with age – especially if you struggle with knee or hip problems, arthritis, or other conditions that cause fine motor impairments. Once routine, everyday tasks like tying shoes can start to become major obstacles to living a happy, healthy, independent life.

Lock Laces® are elastic no-tie shoelaces designed to help solve some of these problems, so you can stay in control of your life and focus on more important things. Keep reading to learn how Lock Laces® can make a difference in your life:

1. Stay Safe and Independent

Bending over to tie your shoes can be difficult, painful, or even dangerous if you’re living by yourself. Having to rely on someone else to help put your shoes on can make you feel like you’ve lost independence and control over your life.

Lock Laces® can give you that sense of independence back. When you replace your shoelaces with Lock Laces®, you can turn any shoes into slip-ons, allowing you to easily slide your shoes on without bending over. Lock Laces® also won’t drag on the ground, so you don’t have to worry about tripping over untied shoelaces.

2. Get Active

We’ve all been told how important it is to stay active as we age to keep ourselves limber. Even just getting outside for a short walk and seeing what’s around you can make a big difference for your physical and mental health. Unfortunately, this is often easier said than done.

Lock Laces® will fit in nearly any walking shoes, so you can easily slip them on and get outside!

3. Comfort and Support

As you get older, you start to realize how important it is to have shoes that fit properly. If your shoes and laces are too loose, it can strain your lower leg muscles, and if your shoes and laces are too tight, it can restrict blood flow to your foot. With traditional cotton laces, it’s hard to find a happy medium.

Lock Laces® are made of firm-but-flexible elastic material that stretches to fit your feet as they swell throughout the day. This helps to relieve foot pain by improving blood flow, which is especially important if you suffer from diabetic foot.

4. No More Velcro!

When bending down to tie shoes becomes too hard or unsafe, most seniors resort to velcro shoes, because they don’t see any other option. Oftentimes, these shoes are clunky and their color options are limited.

But there is another option! With Lock Laces®, you can keep wearing the shoes you like – and look good doing it! Lock Laces® come in colors to match any shoe – from classic colors (black, white, brown) to bright colors (orange, green, pink). Your grandkids will be asking you where you got those cool laces!

We hope that you can see how Lock Laces® can make an impact on your life, because we truly believe that they will. But you don’t have to take our word for it – see what our customers have to say about their Lock Laces®:
