Lace Locks

Lace locks are little spring loaded plastic clamps that you thread your shoe laces through and use in place of the “bowknot.”  Lace Locks cinch down to the bottom of your laces and clamp tight, providing a snug fit to your running shoes and sparing you the time and hassle of tying your shoes which makes for a fast and smooth transition into your running shoes after the bike segment of your triathlon.  These colorful little gems were all the rage in my ancient era, but have given way to a wide assortment of elastic, bungee cord-like laces.  Call me old-fashioned, but in my opinion, lace locks and cotton shoe laces (the ones that come laced in your shoes) are a much better option than any type of elastic shoe lace.  In fact, I’m going to go out on a limb and predict a comeback for lace locks and cotton laces! Here’s a video that shows lace locks in action.
