LaceLocker Review & Giveaway

Do you get sick of having to stop & tie your shoes during a run or worse...a RACE? Are you constantly double-knotting your shoelaces? Well...I recently "tripped" over this nifty little product that can help with this problem...

It's called LaceLocker by STASH Sports! No, it's not those laces you hear about that lock in place (this is what I was first thinking when Carol, the President & Co-Developer, approached me on Twitter). It's like a locker for your laces! When I checked out the website, I was intrigued.

I had always wanted to try those laces that lock in place, but I thought it'd be a pain to change them out each time I switched out/rotated running shoes, or thought that you'd have to pick a color that would go with everthing...and I'm NO PLAIN JANE!

So after seeing the product & being curious as to whether it really worked, I got back with Carol to see if she'd be willing to do a blog review/giveaway...and she jumped on it! She even let me pick out my color!!!

Basically, LaceLocker is a velcro gadget, created by STASH Sports, that keeps your laces in place. It's EASY to install. Lift the the logo section away from the back section, then slide the back section under the first few sections of laces. Then, fold the logo section down & press. Next, open up the logo section from side to side...tie your shoes as usual, then place them in the center. Finally, fold the flaps over the laces to lock them in place. Now you're ready to RUN!

I've worn LaceLocker on several runs, while riding my road bike & spin bike, and at the gym. I must admit, I am impressed...for several reasons:
  • they're small & light-weight
  • they don't budge or flop around
  • laces stay in place
  • the velcro doesn't pull at the laces
  • they're easy to install & remove
*Not only do I think these are great for runners, but coming from a teacher that sees floppy laces ALL DAY LONG, I think they would be PERFECT for kids/students!!!

**All opinions are my own. I was given a pair of LaceLocker for free in exchange for an honest review.
LaceLocker even does custom orders! Please go check them out! 

Please go "LIKE" STASH Sports on Facebook & let them know

  1. I don't like to double knot so this would be perfect- in pink!

    1. I got sick of double-knotting, as well. LaceLocker works great! I have been pleased. I love my pink! I run at 5am, so I'm hoping a reflective one is in the works.

  2. I usually double tie but sometimes they come unlaced. These look great!

    1. So simple! Much easier than removing laces & changing them when you switch shoes!

  3. I double know but my Altra shoe laces seem to delight in coming untied no matter what. so aggravating!

    1. LaceLocker is perfect for that! I haven't had any issues with them.

  4. I don't generally have a problem with shoe laces coming untied but soemtimes when they do, they prove to be a dangerous hazard so better safe than sorry. Red is my favorite color so red would be cool but black would probably go better with my shoes.
