Recently my oldest son has been growing like a weed. His foot had grown so fast that we had to head to the store to buy him some new sneakers. Much to his dismay, they don’t really make slip-on sneakers in size 2. So home we went with his lace-up shoes that he begrudgingly tied and retied and tied some more throughout the day.
Then I was contacted about The Ultimate Shoe Lace and decided that it was a product that he could possibly benefit from. He agreed to give them a try and the laces arrived shortly thereafter.
What they are:
* The Ultimate Shoe Lacesâ„¢, apply patented collapsible knots which produce ‘tensioning-zones’ at each eyelet. Each ‘tension-zone’ is independent and adjustable; allowing the wearer to uniquely customize their footwear comfort, fit and function.
* The Ultimate Shoe Lacesâ„¢ virtually eliminate ‘dual-compression impact’, footwear slippage, and fatigue, thereby enhancing footwear technology (outsoles, insoles, orthotics, etc.).
* Reemerging knots keep the lace and tension in place. For the first time, tension can be adjusted throughout the shoe… not limited to one tension level at the ankle.
How it worked:
By pulling the laces taught, I was able to slide them through each lace hole in his sneaker. Once I had it laced up, I had him put on the sneaker to see if it felt too tight or too loose. Once we found the perfect fit, I then tied the laces behind the tongue of his shoe and cut the excess lace off.
He’s been wearing them for over a month now with no complaints and the tied area of the lace hasn’t come loose. I’d say they are a winner with him and something to consider if you are looking to transform your shoes/sneakers into slip ons.
