One 5-star reviewer wrote: “With three 9-year old’s to get ready for school, fed, and out the door to the bus stop on time Lock Laces aren’t nice-to-have, they’re must haves. Not only do they save time, they ensure a comfortable fit for growing feet. There is an excellent choice of colors and I find they almost match exactly the manufacturer laces. They are easy to put on using the sealed ends; just remember you need to wait to trim them until after you’ve laced them. Once in a while one of my kids will pull too hard and the plastic grip that binds the ends of the laces together comes off. It’s easy enough to use a small, flathead screwdriver to ease open the grip to re-thread and close it again.
Lock Laces are great for grandma, too. Her arthritis can make it tricky to tie her shoes and with Lock Laces she can easily avoid Velcro closures which she doesn’t like. Buying these from Amazon saves at least $10 to $15 per pair of shoes compared to buying them at the nearest sporting goods.”
One 5-star reviewer wrote: “I am disabled with 5 back surgeries a couple of weeks ago my back had another flair up, tying my shoes became almost impossible, ‘very’ painful. These lock laces are the best answer I could find, just ordered a second pair for backup because I don't think I could do without them they are truly the best. If you have a bad back or any reason to make it difficult to tie your shoes this is truly the answer, for sure a best buy. I wish I could give it 6 stars.”
Another 5-star reviewer wrote: “Great for arthritis, stiff-joint sufferers, or otherwise physically limited individuals who have trouble tying shoe laces! These have almost converted my walking shoes to slip-on walking shoes, with minimal tug of the laces. Additionally, having feet with high arches, the conventional laces caused friction and bone pain on the dorsal side of my feet, causing me to struggle with each step. I am now pain-free from the elasticity of these laces, and walk freely, at any pace I choose. And, my fingers thank Lock Laces.”
One 5-star reviewer wrote: “I love these!! My husband and I both use this brand as we do triathlons and they are great for putting on quickly in a race; even if you forget to tighten the lock the shoes still stay on great during runs. This particular pair I purchased for my 8 year old who has high functioning autism and has had a difficult time learning to tie; honestly I was worried that he would start to get made fun of as he gets older. These look ‘cool’ and he loves them!”
