Xtenex Elasticated Race Laces
Not good for running
These make trainers easy to put on BUT they don't support my feet enough when running. My foot twists over when running on trails or the beach. have moved the laces to old trainers which I wear when teaching PE at school!

this is a great product, It was exactly what I was looking for. But they are the x300 which the thickest style the brand makes in these laces. I fought with the laces to get them into the my shoes and thought I would rip them. Still trying to find the style that fits, hard to fit.

Great but not for everyone
I bought a pink pair a few months ago and have never looked back- I run about 14k/ week and they keep my shoes secure in the mud on concrete etc. I've not had to tie or untie them since I bought them.
So I bought this pair for my husband he still tries to tie them in a bow each week and can't seem to get his head around them . Though to give him credit the ends of his laces are much longer than mine and I was unsure what to do with the bits at the ends. I couldn't tie mine so stuck them in the extra hole at the top of my shoes . So in brief if you are likely to get excited about not having to tie/ untie laces and can get your head around not doing so they are def worth a try and have had loads of compliments on the colour.

Gorgeous colour and great idea, but knots just too large to fit shoes!
I thought these laces would look and function well with my running shoes, to avoid those times when my laces magically seem to undo themselves. Sadly, I just could not fit the knots through the lace holes of my Adidas running shoes, so reluctantly they were returned to the shop. Great idea though and they certainly would liven up a pair of boring trainers!

I love these!
Esy to fit (after I'd read previous reviews), stay put, eye-catchingly bright and cool looking. I love these and will buy more...

Brilliant once you've got the hang of them!
Bought these laces as I'm in training for a half marathon and get fed up having to stop and re-tie laces mid-run. Staff in Sweaty Betty recommended them to me so I thought I'd give them a go. They are a bit of a pain to get in but once you've cracked it they are great. The trick is to stretch the lace flat before you thread them rather than try to force the laces through one knot at a time. Once they are in they stay where they are and make it easy to slip trainers on and off. Also, no more numb feet from tying laces too tight. Highly recommended.

Great product, bought them for a triathlon and they make putting your trainers on much quicker and easier when your racing against time.

Great laces BUT not for muddy races!
These laces are great, they really make running more comfortable as they adapt to swelling feet in long runs. As they also make it easier to get trainers on and off, I was in a little trouble during a muddy trail race as pulling my feet out of the mud meant having to do it slowly in order not to leave both trainers behind... Stick to dry roads! :)
