Have you ever had to stop in the middle of a race because your shoe lace became untied? With Lock Laces you’ll never need to tie your shoes ever again.
As a triathlete elastic laces are a must as they help you get your shoes on in transition as quickly as possible. Just grab your shoe, slip it on…
…and go! They save you a ton of time in transition.
Lock Laces are my favourite elastic laces I’ve tried. They are so easy to put in your shoes. First up, here’s what the package looks like.
Inside the packet are the elastic laces, the lock, and a cap for the tips of the laces.
Just remove your old laces from your shoes and lace up like you normally would with the elastic laces. I keep my foot in my shoe to adjust the fit and tension on the elastic. Once you’ve got the laces threaded as you like thread the lock on and finish with the end cap.
So what makes Lock Laces different from other elastic lace systems?
- They are so easy to lace up your shoes.
- I haven’t had to adjust the Lock Laces in my shoes once they are in at all. With other systems I’ve had a difficult time dialling in the fit between too tight and too loose.
- Running shoes come in some pretty fun colours these days and so do Lock Laces. You’ll be able to find a set of Lock Laces that will complement your fun shoes!
- A set of Lock Laces only costs $7.99, or you can buy three pairs for $19.99.
- They ship to Canada for a very reasonable price!
I’ve got Lock Laces set up in all of the shoes I use now and love them.

Lock Laces sent me a set of laces to review, however all opinions are my own.
**WINNERS: Congratulations Leigh and Joanna!!**
I was just thinking about which kind of laces to put in my new shoes1
Try these ones

Well, that was one of the more confusing contests I’ve entered. Perhaps because I didn’t use the FB login. But still, winning a pair of lock laces will make me happy, and give me a chance to buy Leana a coffee.

Have never used the lock laces but have tried so many others. Would love to find ones that don’t keep loosening!
You can get these elastic lock laces on amazon
I bought a pair of these because the laces on my new Brooks were really too short. I was really impressed.

I have stopped a couple times. tired of the double knots then makes it hard to get em off after 13miles!! ha Plus what great colours!!!
I’ve never tried anything like this, but would love to!
Luckily I’ve never had to stop and readjust laces during a race, but I have during training runs. In fact, it was the partial ruination of an 18 miler this summer. I’ve never tried Lock Laces but I’ve seen them at plenty of running stores and always been intrigued!

Curious to know if they are as good in trail shoes as in road shoes? Anyone try them this way?
oooh, I’ve always wanted to try these!
oh, and I’ve never had to stop in a race to tie my shoes, thank goodness
I don’t think I’ve ever stopped in a race to have to retie my shoe, but I am incredibly lazy about tieing and untieing my running shoes on a regular basis. The pair of shoes I use during my lunch break haven’t been untied in over a year. I just slip them on/off. Probably not good for them! Elastic laces would definitely make it easier!

I absolutely NEED these… My laces have come undone in the last few races I have done! Why do they never come undone in training runs, just in races?
Yes the race I ran last weekend I had to!
