Shoelaces That Stay Tied

By February 5, 2012

Follow me on:

Wonder LacesI'm a skeptic. I also seem to have above-average difficulty in keeping my shoelaces tied, which is a bother for a walker. Even my comfort shoes need retied every time I get out of my desk chair. So I was amazed that Wonder Laces worked as promised and don't come untied -- even just using a plain old single-bow knot. Not only that, but they are made with elastic and expand and contract with your foot. I'm sold. Wonder Laces review

I also got a pair of Synch™ Bands to try. They are also made of elastic, but they are designed to not even be tied at all. Instead, you order them to the length of your lacing system and they secure with a Synch Clip. They come in a big variety of colors. I had difficulty with the synch clip concept. No matter how many times I viewed their video on what to do with any extra laces, I couldn't get the lace to stay in the Synch Clip reliably. These probably work great if you get them the right length for your Converse kicks, which is what they are designed for. The colors are super. But they don't work well as tied laces, they loosen immediately. So order them fit, and maybe you'll have better luck with the synching instructions than I did.

Interesting article. I’ve been running and walking for over 39 years and have had no problems with shoe laces. I tie a simple bow knot and then use the two loops to tie a half-knot. This double-knot works fine for me.
