Now I can go back to worrying if my jacket is properly zipped....

Full Disclosure:  I use these things, and they're great for exactly the reason claimed- because when you want to keep a steady pace up over a long distance, there's nothing more annoying than having to stop to tie your shoes.  I wish I had invented them.

I'm only including this ad because of a line I read at the official website- "finally, an end to the stress and worry of untied shoes...."  Shoes coming untied are annoying.  But I have to say, I've never experienced "stress" and certainly not "worry" over them.  I mean, they are kind of a fact of life.  If you "worry" about your shoes coming untied and you aren't on a killer escalator or walking a tightrope, you don't have enough actual problems in your life.  Would you like to borrow some?

  1. I was actually thinking, these would be great for figure skaters' boots, because then they could make sure their boots were laced comfortably and snugly without being too tight, and they wouldn't come undone during a performance and pose a safety risk either through someone skating over a loose lace or just losing support from a loose boot. Just think, if Tonya Harding had had a pair of these, history might have been very different...well, maybe not.
