This smart Sof Sole® Performance lace eliminates the need to tie your shoes and creates added comfort. A simple locking mechanism creates a custom fit that converts your shoe into a slip-on. Desired adjustment of the lace's tension also reduces pinching and pressure point discomfort often caused by traditional laces. This is excellent for all types of athletic footwear.
I also have a pair of Yankz brand laces, which are similar to the performance lace EXCEPT the ends and length adjustment is at the bottom or front of the shoe. I laced these to the bottom and adjusted the fit. I then turned and inserted the extra length back under the laces [about 2-3"each side]. they work great and maintain the tension.
The instructions should be reversed.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
The spring clips only hold the laces in place for a short time. The springs and resistance are too low. You can easily slip the lace holder up and down the laces. Needs to have stronger springs and a better grip on the laces. Lost one of them when it fell off after an hour or so of walking. Don't buy this product it is a poor design and not worth the money!!
